Hi, a Ford P0171 is a LEAN code for cylinder bank 1, and P0174 is a LEAN code for cylinder bank 2. These codes commonly occur on many Ford vehicles, and are set when the powertrain control module (PCM) sees the air/fuel mixture is running too lean (too much air, not enough fuel).
When the Check Engine Light comes on, either one of these codes, or both, may be found when a code reader or scan tool is plugged into the vehicle diagnostic connector. IF the vehicle is driven long enough, typically both codes will be set.
A P0171 lean code for bank 1 is the cylinder bank on the RIGHT (passenger) side of the engine on Ford vehicles with a V6 or V8 engine and rear-wheel drive.


A lean fuel condition may exist if the engine is sucking in too much air and/or the fuel system is not delivering enough fuel. If bad enough, a lean fuel condition may cause lean misfire, a rough idle, hesitation or stumble when accelerating, and/or poor engine performance.
Unmetered air can enter the engine through a vacuum leak, a dirty airflow sensor that is not reading airflow accurately, an EGR valve is not closing and is leaking exhaust into the intake manifold, an EGR valve that is allowing too much flow (because the EGR differential pressure sensor that monitors EGR flow is faulty and is under-reporting EGR flow).
If the problem is not enough fuel, the underling cause may be a weak fuel pump, restricted fuel filter, leaky fuel pressure regulator or dirty fuel injectors.

Check engine light on, vibration at idle


Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
Some specific causes for the light to be on are:
Gas cap left off, not tightened, not installed correctly, or needs to be replaced.
02 sensor.
Engine misfire - error might clear itself after 3 complete warm-up cycles; not restarts, but warm-ups.
At start up for a bulb check - Should not stay on.

Car rough idling causes
misfiring engine is among the most common causes of a rough idle. You may notice your car idling roughly when it's in "Park" or when you're driving it and stop at a stoplight. A rough idle can be caused by damaged spark plugs or spark plug wires or a burned-out valve. It's important to address the cause as soon as possible to avoid potentially damaging the engine. Engine repairs are almost always expensive.

03 Suzuki Aerio Idles and runs rough and loud


Sounds like you first need to go to Auto Zone and have them scan the computer for the check engine light code and find out what is going on with that..it is probably a misfire code, they will print out the code and the cure, may need a good tune with wires.
As far as the wheel soot/?
You may have a leaking axle seal/worn brake pads/frozen,leaking brake line or disc caliper(check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder to confirm a brake fluid leak)
