CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

I am working on the same problem. This 2000 ZX2 was idling rough and throwing a p171 code (bank 1 too lean). I hooked up a scanner to the OBDII port and you could see the O2 sensor at 0 or very low voltage and not switching and the fuel compensation maxed out which indicates a lean condition. Using a flammable Carb cleaner and the engine running I sprayed around the vacuum hoses until the idle picked up. I found a rubber elbow that connects to the bottom of the intake maniflold and feeds vacuum to the PCV valve. Replacing the the elbow with a suitable replacment from the auto part misc parts cards display had it running smoothly and the O2 sensor switching properly. Since this was happening at idle it was not the fuel filter which can cause a lean condition in upper rpms. It is not the MAF or the O2 sensor since it switches when not at idle. Also check the smaller vacuum lines that go to the evap control from the intake vacuum ports (back of manifold just below the throttlebody, most will be cracking if your car is anything like mine. I have also seen this problem with a bad PCV valve.
