A code saying that it is running too lean usually means that the either the egr valve is dirty and stuck open or sending exhaust gasses back into the intake manifold where it is reburned, usually finding where yours is and taking it off and cleaning it to get the carbon out of it sometimes get it to work, but you have to get the check engine light cleared afterwords and drive to see if that fixed your problem, if it comes on again the egr valve is probably no good and needs replaced

2001 GMC Yukon XL idles rough and lacks power code out P0171


P0171 is a lean Oxygen Sensor code. It is trying to tell you that your engine is running lean...not getting enough fuel, or getting too much air. That will cause the poor running and dying. This is most likely caused by a bad vacuum leak. The O2 heater code is probably caused by a failed O2 sensor heater. Sometimes it is caused by an open or short in the O2 sensor circuits, but most of the time it is the sensor itself.

1995 Camry Le 4 cylinder code 25 rough idle what can i do?


If the engine runs good and is not rough then you may just have a defective O2 sensor. The sensor is located in the exhaust pipe just off the engine. See picture below.9_7_2012_11_27_08_pm.jpg

I have a 2002mercury sable, idles rough but runs good when acceleration. I changed fuel filter,plugs, plug wires, coil, still idles rough.Autozone had three codes, P0316, P1151, P1131. What should I do...


P0316 crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor, or a wiring issue. Since this code indicates a start up misfire, pay attention to items which may expand or contract when cold (if the code sets when the engine is cold), or hot (if the code sets on a hot restart).

If you have other misfire codes that pertain to individual cylinders, you should attend to them first P1151 has a huge list of things that it can be, But included in that list is the camshaft position sensor , po1131 is the same thing, all building up to your car is running lean , so I'd do the sensor (cam) and check timing,,
