My cadillac escalade runs rough in idle.


PO174 &171- Both banks lean. This could be caused by a defective MAF or O2 sensor but something as simple as a vacuum leak could cause this problem. Also make sure there are no air leaks from the MAF sensor to the intake manifold. I have repaired many vehicles with these codes that was caused by a vacuum leak. Hope this helps

The car will not hold rpm.


If you check engine light is on the computer has a code to show what sensor is having issues or perhaps is broken.

If you can keep the car running by staying on the gas pedal its most likely a broken throttle position sensor or a broken idle air control.

Throttle position sensors *(TPS for short) are high wear since they are mechanically changing position everytime you move the gas pedal. The idle air control is less likely but still a possiblity.

Find an autoparts store that will read your on board diagnostic code *(called OBD 2 for short) for free and see if the code is something that just requires a new part.

TPS for a Nissan Maxima is 130-150 bucks! So doing this cheap is not going to be easy! The idle air control is over 200 bucks! Yipes!

Good luck with your repair and be careful!

I have a code that i need to get the right part..PO174


po 174 is typically accompanied by code po 171 however the code is normally a vaccum leak fords normally have an issue with the pcv valve hose collapsing a busting or either the plastic intakes have a vaccum leak that clears up when the engine warms up which is normally the upper plenum gaskets
