DTC P0173 applies to fuel trim malfunction on left bank (bank 2) on 3.0L California vehicles.
DTC Set Criteria (2.4L)
Engine is in closed loop control. Intake air temperature is more than 14°F (-10°C). Barometric pressure is more than 11 psi (76 kPa). Volume Airflow (VAF) sensor output frequency is 88 Hz or more. Code will set if long-range fuel correction is less than -12.5 percent, or more than +12.5 percent, for 5 seconds and short-range fuel correction is less than -10 percent, or more than +10 percent, for 5 seconds.

Code will set if long-range fuel correction is less than -12.5 percent, or more than +12.5 percent, for 5 seconds. On 2.4L code will also set if short-range fuel correction is less than -15 percent, or more than +15 percent, for 5 seconds. On 3.0L Federal code will also set if short-range fuel correction is less than -13.5 percent, or more than +13.5 percent, for 5 seconds.
Have the O2 Sensor changed on the Right Bank, ( passenger side of the Engine, or where the # 1 cylinder is.)
Good luck and hope this helps

The codes are for the Mass Air Flow Sensor. It is located between the throttle body and the air filter case. You will see it has a plug in the side. Unplug and remove it by taking the hose clamps off each end. Once you have it out, clean it out with a good throttle body/intake cleaner. Allow it to dry and reinstall. If the light continues to come on, you will need to replace it. Cleaning has worked for some.

The code P0170 means that the air-fuel mixture coming in to the engine is too lean, or too rich. Usually it's the lean condition that causes this code. The code P0173 means the same, only for the Bank 2. Some car manufacturers list the description for the code P0170 as self adaptation out of limits.
The code P0170 could be caused by a number of reasons, such as vacuum leaks, bad PCV valve, or other parts of crankcase ventilation system, low fuel pressure, bad oxygen sensor, bad MAF sensor or even a bad EGR vlave.
