Hello,

 

P0300 means it has detected a misfire.

 

P0171 refers to lean fuel mixture.

 

I have included some info for you that explains it in detail. Basically it sounds like there is a vacuum leak in the engine area somewhere,,,the tricky part is finding it. I suggest looking around under the hood for and loose or disconnected vac hoses. You can also take a can of carb spray and lightly spray around different areas on the engine,,,wherever there are vac hoses,,,if you come across an area to where the idle increases, there is a vac leak. If nothing found,,,unfortunatly it will have to be hooked up to a factory level scan tool to isolate the culprit.

V Wrench, Seems you are very knowledgeable, tell me if I'm wrong but doesn't the LS2 have an alum. block? Mine is an iron block.
Expert:  Virtual Wrench (L J) replied 6 years ago.

Hi there,

 

I just double checked and yes the LS2 has the alum block, used mainly in the corvette but could be special ordered for the Denali,,,sorry for the confusion.
