2005 Ford Taurus: the check engine light coming..engine code..lean

Resolved Question:

My 2005 Ford Taurus has the check engine light coming after morning cold starts. The autoparts store said the engine code showed 151 & 154 lean fuel on both banks, but no specific sensor is indicated to be bad. If you reset the code it may go for almost a week before it comes back on again. Any ideas what would cause this?

Just so I am clear, there is an intake leak that is making the car run lean?
