Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
This is a lean condition which could be a number of things .
But your problem tells me a possible fuel restriction ,bad fuel pump pressure .you need to have the fuel pressure tested .
Other possible cause for your P0172 code .
Ignition misfiring, bad plugs or coil boots.
Faulty fuel injectors.
Ignition misfiring, coils bad
Incorrect fuel pressure. test fuel pressure
Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor,Most common issue
Faulty front heated oxygen sensor.
Exhaust gas leaks.
Take a look at the throttle body is it coked up with black carbon deposits if so clean the throttle body and plate first clear codes and test drive .this may sort out the lumpy idle .
Seen a lot of IAC go faulty and cause this code .
With the engine running disconnect the IAC if there is no change in RPM replace the IAC valve ..
Please rate my help a good to excellent if you are satisfied .
If not ready to rate don't rate poor or bad service as we can continue to work on this issue or I can opt out and recommend another expert .
After accepting there is no extra charge for further assistance.
If I don't reply soon I will as quickly as I can when i get back on line.
Kind regards Greg
