Customer Question
Hello My name is*****...

Hello My name is***** have a 2001 GMC Yukon Denali and this morning it began driving horribly. The CEL flashed and it stumbled and could barely maintain 50 MPH. I stopped at Autozone to have the CEL checked. It was throwing codes P0171, P0174, P0430, P0300 and P0706.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I know I attempted to add oil to it a couple days ago and spilled quite a bit on my attempt. The engine stumbles and feels like it wants to stall. Going up hills was a major struggle.

Did you clear the codes to see which ones would return?

No, took it back home and had to take my other vehicle.

Did the engine feel like it was misfiring, or was it just a general loss of power?

It was misfiring. The truck struggled going up hills and would not travel faster than 50mph.
GMC Mechanic: Dave Nova, GMC Technician replied 2 years ago

With the codes you have, p0171 and P0174 are lean codes and P0300 is a misfire code. Sounds like the engine is starving for fuel. If you have not replaced the fuel filter in a while, I'd start there. Beyond that, testing fuel pressure will reveal whether the fuel pump needs to be replaced. You should have 60-66 psi fuel pressure with the key on, engine off. If the fuel pressure is lower than specified, the fuel pump should be replaced.
