A code P0171 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 may 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 it's 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

OBD11 code P0171 could this be from something in gas tank? think someone put something the tank


P0171 is Fuel System Too Lean (Cylinder Bank 1)
One of the most common causes of the code is a dirty MAF sensor. It is in the intake tube after the filter and before the intake manifold. clean it with ELECTRONIC CLEANER only!! If the code keeps coming back then you either have a vacum leak or the MAF sensor is bad.
