Put in forward and subsequently in reverse, problem could be caused by not having all 4 tires the same.

Here's a link to the issues associated with a P0174 code:

There's a bit of a punch list of stuff that could be causing this code. If you have never changed the O2 sensors on this car that is where I would start; replace all of them. Get OEM exact replacements versus "universal" fit O2 sensors.
The Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) may be dirty. There is specially formulated cleaner for removing any built up mung on the sensor.
The PCV system can be checked for proper flow. Replace the PCV and/or clean the system if there is no valve.
Bring the car in and have the injectors professionally cleaned.

You're probably in the neighborhood of 165-170K. If you've never done any preventive or regular maintenance then there could be a lot of issues with your car. The P0174 is a lean condition. It could be bogus inputs to the engine management computer (via bad O2 sensors and/or a dirty or bogus MAF sensor). It could be really dirty injectors because they've never been cleaned and if you've been filling up with non-top tier fuel (because you're saving 2 cents a gallon) then it's a sure bet the injectors are dirty. Running lean comes from air leaks into the manifold post MAF sensor. This could be from rotted vacuum hoses or cracked/broken vacuum fittings. There's just too many possibilities to be able to nail it down for sure. Use the link and the info there to start your trouble shooting.

ticking noise is the lifters I am thinking without hearing it but I would try some stp oil treatment add it to your oil the other services you talked about like flushing out the radiator my cause you to start losing water or burning it the trans fluid change wouldn't hurt

Make sure it is not a door switch. They may seem alright but are known to fail. I'm having issue with mine and found that it was a switch.

Check for loose belt, slipping balancer, or wrong size alternator pulley(too big diameter)

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Mar 18, 2014

You won't get through inspection. Just had this issue with mine. The throttle body and intake need to be cleaned out. these trucks are awesome but are known for bad build up in these areas. hope this helps.

If you look up the fuse lacations or wiring diagrams it should give you an idea on the location if not a definate location. they are usually located by the fuse panels. They also usually look like a plastic pill shaped bubble with a wire running through it. hope this helps.

Autozone and EBAY (and many others) sell 12volt Electrical Fuel Pumps and you can do exactly what you are talking about BUT.....


Make sure you use a Toggle Switch to power up the Fuel Pump or the Power Source is from a KEY ON component. Running Line to the system is not difficult but where are you going to have the EVAP system return the un-used fuel?

You are not making the best decision but be careful in whatever you do.
