Repair Difficulty Level: 3/3  What does this mean?

Possible causes

  • Intake air leaks

  • Lack of fuel
  • Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor

Tech notes

If the P0171 is combined with the P0174 code, it's very likely that the problem is caused by an intake leak. If there are no intake leaks, the next step is to replace the air filter and clean the air flow meter. If the problem persists the front oxygen (O2) sensor may need to be replaced.

When is the code detected?

- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too small. (The mixture ratio is too lean.)

Possible symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Excessive Fuel Consumption
