Lean fuel mixture is a symptom, not a root cause. To figure out what is actually causing the lean fuel mixture to occur, some investigation and troubleshooting is needed. TAKING SOME TIME TO FIND THE ROOT CAUSE WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY.
usual suspects include:
air leak- vacuum hose or intake system or manifold
inaccurate air measurement- faulty maf or map sensor
fuel problem- bad gas, failing fuel pump, clogged filter, faulty injectors

Or, feel free to throw parts at the problem. It keeps checker and autozone open late on saturday.

Po174 and po154 what is possible solutions


P0154 - 02 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
The oxygen sensors are critical to the engine running properly. It basically informs the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) of oxygen content of the exhaust. The PCM then uses this information to regulate fuel into the engine and maintain proper air:fuel ratio. It is a four wire sensor, with the PCM providing a reference/signal voltage of about half a volt (0.5v) to the sensor. It usually provides a ground also. The other two wires are dedicated to the oxygen sensor heater element. This heater allows the sensor to warm up faster, which allows the engine to enter closed loop faster, reducing startup emissions. The heater element is supplied a 12v feed from the power distribution center (usually) and a ground.

The oxygen content of the exhaust affects the O2 sensor resistance. This resistance produces a counter voltage on the reference/signal wire that the PCM will use to analyze oxygen in the exhaust. Lean exhaust produces low voltage, while rich exhaust produces high voltage. The oxygen sensor is capable of varying between 0.9v (rich) and 0.1v (lean). Once the engine reaches closed loop, the O2 sensor should begin switching rapidly between rich and lean voltages 2-3 times per second. If for some reason the O2 sensor doesn't switch properly or "sticks", P0154 may set. This code indicates the O2 sensor isn't operating.


P0174 - System Too Lean (Bank 2)
Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 2 is generally the side of the engine that doesn't have cylinder #1.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration.


If need additional details, just contact us. Hope this helps.

Engine check light on error code 1 is P0171 system too lean bank 1 error code 2 is P0174 system too lean bank 2


P0171 system too lean bank 1
P0174 system too lean bank 2
links to information on the codes

it means that the O2 sensors in your vehicle detected a lean condition in their respective banks. this could be caused by a dirty MAF (mass air flow) sensor or a vacuum leak downstream from the MAF sensor

sometimes you can clean the MAF with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner but be sure to take it off the vehicle first. be careful not to damage the MAF while spraying the cleaner, and allow it to dry completely before installing it on the vehicle.

Ford ranger engine codes P0171 &P0174 ?


Hi hope I can help.
P0171 mean bank 1 is to lean
P0174 means bank 2 is lean
You did not state what engine you have but by your codes you must have the V6 4.0.
These codes refer to a fuel issue. bank 1 and bank two represent each of your manifolds.
being you have a V6 you have 2 manifolds.
Each of your manifold have an O2 sensor in it. That's what is giving the lean reading.
This does not mean that you have bad O2 sensors.
They are just doing there job.
So you should check your fuel pressure with a gauge and make sure your pressure is correct.
It seams as your fuel pump maybe weak.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feed back
Thank you urnuts73@ FixYa

I have a 1997 chevy silverado putting out a code of p0174 what does this mean?


Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 2 is generally the side of the engine that doesn't have cylinder #1.

A code P0174 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

•The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
•There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor.

Possible solutions include:

•In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for its location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
•Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
•Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

This is usually an oxygen sensor, replace the O2 sensor located above the catalytic converter before replacing the evaporator purge canister.

Hi
171 system too lean
174 system too lean
2195 - 02 ozygen sensor signal stuck lean Bank1 Sensor 1
2197- 02 ozygen sensor signal stuck lean Bank 2
Sensor 1
The 2 front 02 sensors are located on the front of
the exhaust manifold.
Should solve problem and increase gas mileage.
