When they say "bank," they're referring to cylinder banks 1 or 2. Bank 1 is the passenger's side and has cylinders 1-4 on it. Bank 2 is the driver's side and has cylinders 5-8 on it.

P0171/0174 indicates that the long term fuel trims have reached a maximum (should be somewhere around 30-35%). Fuel trims are how much fuel the PCM adds or subtracts. 0171/0174 indicates that the engine is running lean, meaning that outside air is getting past the mass air sensor. The O2 sensors see this excess air and the PCM responds by cranking up fuel trims to add more fuel for that more air.

Possible solutions include:

  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

Need to replace water pump on 1999 pont sunfire 2.4 liter engine are there any special tools required


No, just basic mechanics hand tools. This vehicle is 11 years old. I recommend you perform a complete cooling system service at the same time you replace the water pump. Drain, flush, replace the thermostat, replace the water pump, pour in a 50/50 mix of the correct antifreeze and distilled water. (Do not use tap water). Bleed all air from the system. Also inspect the radiator hoses and heater hoses. Replace as necessary.

Bleeding brakes, The front brakes will not bleed out


In order to bleed the brakes on this car u need a special tool that holds the ABS Hydraulic control units pop-it valves open, without this special tool that plugs into the ABS you can't bleed the air out of the ABS control valve module, u either have to have the dealer do this or someone who has a factory equivalent of the ABS special bleeding tool, Snap-On tools most likely makes these, they are horribly expensive.

Have bleeded brakes but still get no tension at the pedal and hearing air at the pedal , the reservoir for fluid went down overnight , does this mean a leak or maybe a master cylinder?


theres a leak somewhere. fill master then pump pedal 15 times then take alook under the car and look for a leak, for it to drain overnight means its a pretty big leak you should be able to spot it, try that. hope this helps.

NZ Cavalier brake for few days then no brakes and so on


abs pump!!! did you pump the breaks when you were bleeding them? as a rule with abs you just apply the brake and D pump will supply enough pressure to bleed they recommend you do not pump!! them standard brakes yes you must pump to bleed.

You need to bleed this system with the special tool that holds the ABS solenoids open, it plugs into the ABS brake controller, if you don't do this there is no way to get the air out of the system, that is why your pedal is low.

YOU HAVE A LEAKING MASTER OR SLAVE CLUTCH HYDRAULIC CYLINDER (AIR LEAKING INTO THE SYSTEM), SINCE THESE ARE ALWAYS REPLACED TOGETHER IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE WHICH IS THE PROBLEM CYLINDER.
