Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Thanks for allowing me to help you for a much lower fee than a dealership.

.

Are you getting stored trouble codes?

Thank you Chris for your reply , yes I'm getting DTC CODES for all the o2 sensors

Each O2 can store about 6 codes. Can I get the codes you have?

Acutely i cant tell u now cause I'm out side , but its p0137 and all them which is sensor bank 1 and 2 lift and right , and i have replaced them all the 4 sensors but still car goes lean and chick engine light appeared

When you can tell me all the codes that will help. For now, lean codes are a result of an O2 sensor reading, but doe not mean the sensor is to blame, it is just telling you what it sees. Running lean is a sign of a dirty or bad MAF sensor, vacuum leaks allowing unmetered air to get into the intake from a source other than the air filter, or low fuel pressure. Have you checked any of these things?

.

When you are ready, please make sure to rate the question and or say you are pleased with my help so the website will compensate me from your deposit. Rating does not close the question, prevent you or I from replying. It will also keep a post open forever rather than timing out in 7 days.

Thanks Chris

For the MAF sensor no acutely , but ill be checking thus thing again tomorrow , for the fuel i checked its fine and great , to be clear my car is supercharged by whipple and full exhaust and been tuned by HP , no any issues with car since i placed the WHIPPLE but suddenly this thing happened to me , tomorrow will check the MAF and will let u know what will happen .

Now that I know the truck is altered, the same answer still applies but I will not be able to go into detail on the input the SC and programmings possible relation to the issues since I do not work on many altered vehicles.

Thank u. But today they put the sensors in resistance learn mode but when i took the car for drive around 20 km it becomes lean again ��

Did you do all the checks I outlined to see if one of those is to blame causing the engine to run lean?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
the outlined you been told all are fine MAF VACUM LEAKS ETC

If there are no vacuum leaks, the MAF is reading accurate, and fuel pressure is right. Then it would be a computer issue or a programming concerns with your add on parts.

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
The thing is while driving totally fine and great Only in idle mode after 2 - 3 min it goes lean

Your computer controls the fuel injector on time to prevent running lean and at idle that is when you have the highest vacuum which would cause a leak to evident.

Does the spark plugs effect and cause the lean in idling?

Spark plugs will not cause a lean running issue. They would cause a misfire. BEst case scenario plugs should be changed every 70k
