What does the check engine light PO171 on a 2001 Toyota corolla mean?

DTC PO171 indicates a lean condition, this is caused by the air flow meter located just behind the air filter on the intake tube, here is how to fix this trouble code: Remove the air flow meter and clean the very small platinum wires inside the housing of the af meter with an electronic circuit cleaner, it is important not to use anything else, you can get it any radio shack or electronics store, just spray it into the opening to clean the accumulated gunk off the wires, clear the DTC and you will be good to go, install a new air filter.

IF there is no PVC valve on 98 ford tarus 24 valve dohc v6 engine what do you think causes codes PO171 PO174?

everyone says po171 and npo174 are map sensor problems, i do not think so, the egr pressure sensor collects vaccum and tells computer about the egr , what i am finding ,especially in winter, the 2 hoses going to the pressure sensor get full of crud and the sensor cant read anymore.Today i found a 1997 ranger with po171 and po174 codes ,the hoses were fine but ice had built up inside the knozles of the egr valve pressure sensor causing it not to read.check hoses and look for vaccum leaks first. I concur with the vacuum leak. To find, spray carb cleaner around all suspect hoses and manifold areas with engine at idle. When the idle speed increases, you have found the vacuum leak!

What does the trouble code po171 mean for 2000 Chevy Malibu?

po171-- system to lean ( bank one ).-this could be a vacuum leak, fuel pressure could also cause a problem. if a leaking vacuum hose you will hear a hissing sound from engine compartment. most of the problems can be corrected by just cleaning the maf sensor. you can buy a can of maf sensor spray at any auto parts store and just follow directions on can. on v6/v8/and v10 bank 1 is the bank that the # 1 plug is at. good luck!! i cleaned my maf sensor and it helped alot.

Have you had your 4 oxygen sensors replaced? It turns out when they replaced my oxygen sensors, they were after market parts so the service engine light did not come and gave codes even though they were replaced.
