This Code means lean fuel mix on Bank 1. There are several things which can cause this reading. They are a Dirty MAF sensor (which can be cleaned with Electrical Cleaner, no solvents like Choke spray), and Vacuum leaks.

You can spray a water mist with a spray bottle around the gaskets. When the engine is running the RPM will change when you hit the open spot. Then you either try tightening and retorquing the bolts or replace the bad gaskets.

If you happen to have the 3.8 motor they used a 2 piece intake and the gasket between the 2 pieces failed alot.

My information also points to the fuel delivery system as a cause of a Code 171, which could be low fuel pressure. You may just need a clean fuel filter.

Code Po171 indicates a lean condition on cylinder bank #1 of the engine. This is the drivers side of the engine. I would suggest replacing both front oxygen sensors as a pair to start. An oxygen sensor has a life span of about 5 years and yours are now 9 years old if they are original. When they get older they are slow to respond to changes in the oxygen content of the exhaust and can trigger a code Po171. If you continue to have the same code set after the replacement of both oxygen sensors then it is time to find out why your engine is running lean. Some of the most common causes are an ignition misfire and a vacuum leak. I have also seen Fords EGR flow sensor (known by Ford as Delta Pressure Feedback sensor) to cause problems like that as well. A good mechanic with a scan tool can usually spot a problem like that in a few minutes.

If the car is thinking its lean, but its blowing black smoke then it sounds like its confused. Sounds like the o2 sensor is bad. How does it run when its cold?

Help on finding out wind star coads PP0171-/-P074-/-P0401


first PO171 o2 bank 1 s1 lean PO174 o2 bank2 lean
PO401 cyl 1 misfire
when an engine misfires the oxygen sensor will read the oxygen from that cyl sensor doesnt read fuel so every misfire is a air pump to diagnose we have to fix misfire first check the coil wires and plugs for cyl 1 use spray bottle with water run engine hot at idle spray wires with water if enging runs rough shakes or stalls then replace the wires dont spray with to much water if the wires are real bad you may not be able to restart engine

try this first once fix misfire clear codes and drive it

plz comment vote reply if you need more help

recommend getting a scan of the OBD II connector for trouble codes, then get back to us. Autozone and Advance have free scanning service. The trouble codes will help us diagnose the specific misfire. With the codes, I can provide you some recommended troubleshooting or repair steps.
