Hi hope I can help.
P0171 mean bank 1 is to lean
P0174 means bank 2 is lean
You did not state what engine you have but by your codes you must have the V6 4.0.
These codes refer to a fuel issue. bank 1 and bank two represent each of your manifolds.
being you have a V6 you have 2 manifolds.
Each of your manifold have an O2 sensor in it. That's what is giving the lean reading.
This does not mean that you have bad O2 sensors.
They are just doing there job.
So you should check your fuel pressure with a gauge and make sure your pressure is correct.
It seams as your fuel pump maybe weak.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feed back
Thank you urnuts73@ FixYa

SOURCE: Ford windstar check engine light comes on after

P0171 indicates a lean condition. The most common cause of this is a defective mass air flow sensor. Also check if any vacuum leaks. P0174 OBD-II Trouble Code


Technical Description

System Too Lean (Bank 2)


What does that mean?

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 2 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust.

Note: This DTC is very similar to P0171, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

SOURCE: i am getting a code p0171 and p0174 on my 1999

P0171 is a LEAN code for cylinder bank 1

P0174 is a LEAN code for cylinder bank 2

That means your car is getting a lot of air and not enough fuel which will make the engine Misfire and rough idle. Well i can say check your mass air flow for any dirt in it and the EGR for any leaks. And also the fuel pump and the fuel lines or any restricted fuel filter. Good luck bro

Ford Taurus Engine Light is: P0171 & P0174. I am thinking a MAF Sensor


Could be a problem with the MAF sensor but if it is you should have a code for that too.
Other causes include low fuel pressure, and a vac leak or air leak in the intake hose to the MAF.
The codes mean the ECM can not make the injectors rich enough to make the O2 sensors switch back and forth.

2003 Ford Ranger 4x4 extended cab- diagnostics checked and got these codes- P0171, P0174, P0300, P0316. Can you tell me what they mean?


P0171------ system too lean bank#1
Po174------ system too lean bank#2
For these 2 codes, try cleaning the maf sensor (mass air flow), that is mounted in the big black hose that goes from the air filter housing to the throttle plate, if it is dirty, that will cause those 02 sensors to send a signal to the computor to lean the air fuel mixture. If cleaning it doesn't work, the sensors will probably need changing.
P0300---- Random/multiple cylinder misfire
P0316---- Cylinder misfire at start up---- first 100 revolutions.
On those 2 codes, you have to do some testing to find out why there is a misfire.
Possible causes:
dirty/malfunctioning injectors
weak coil pack
fowling spark plugs/wires
Low fuel pressure
