98 Ford Contour: diagnostic..two codes: P0171 and P0708

Resolved Question:

I have a 98 Ford Contour. I have had an engine diagnostic run resulting in two codes: P0171 and P0708. Sadly, I work at an automotive school and they can't seem to tell me exactly what needs to be repaired. Can you lead me in the right direction?

po 171 System Too Lean - Bank No. 1

is this a 4 or 6 cylinder?

six cylinder
Expert:  john -aka eauto replied 8 years ago.
most probable cause for the lean condition would be a lower intake gasket leak (replace intake gasket)
