Codes P0171 and P0174 are lean codes which means the fuel system is running lean. In other words, the engine is taking in more air than fuel and it's throwing off the air/ fuel ratio. This can be caused by a variety of things such as a vacuum leak. A vacuum leak can be caused by a leaking hose or a leaking intake gasket. A lean condition can also be caused by low fuel pressure, a faulty oxygen sensor and other things. You should start by looking for vacuum leaks. Vacuum leaks can sometimes be heard because they produce a whistling sound from the engine compartment.
