P0171 FUEL BANK 1 TOO LEAN
1998 Acura RL • 174,000 miles
I replaced air intake hose and a rear cat o2 sensor and after clearing all codes after 2 hrs of driving this code comes back up... could it be mass air flow sensor?
Was this code present before replacing the parts mentioned?
Yes, there were actually 5 codes present. Everything must have happened at once. p0174 (bank 1 &2) p0141 p0173 p0170. I reasearched for a vacuum leak and the intake hose had many big cracks in it. Replaced that and the 02 sensor that was bad. At that time of reseting the codes the light had finally went off for a period of time. After paying close attention, occasionally at idle the rpms will surge about 200 or so. Sometimes this changes when you place the car at idle in drive, neutral, or park. however, if you bring the rpms up in neutral it clears out and will come back to a smoothe idle. Do you have any further suggestions? Thanks for the help btw
NOTE: DTC P0171 = Fuel System Too Lean (Right Bank) DTC P0172 = Fuel System Too Rich (Right Bank) DTC P0174 = Fuel System Too Rich (Left Bank) DTC P0175 = Fuel System Too Rich (Left Bank)
NOTE: Troubleshoot DTC P0107, P0108, P0135, P0137, P0138, P0141, P0155, P0401, P1128, P01129, P1491 or P1498, if set, before proceeding.
1. If DTC P0171 or P0174 is set, check for:
a) Insufficient fuel pump flow or pressure.
b) Clogged or leaking fuel feed line.
c) Fuel pressure regulator stuck open.
d) Clogged fuel filter.
e) Clogged or air blocked fuel injector.
f) Fuel octane level less than specification.
g) A deteriorated HO2S-1.
h) Insufficient EGR system flow.
i) An exhaust system leak.
Repair as necessary. If no problems are found, go to step 3).
2. If DTC P0172 or P0175 is set, check for:
a) Fuel pressure regulator clogged or stuck closed.
b) Clogged fuel return line.
c) A leaking fuel injector.
d) Fuel octane level less than specification.
e) A deteriorated HO2S-1.
f) Excessive EGR system flow.
g) A leaking or stuck open EVAP purge control solenoid valve.
Repair as necessary. If no problems are found, go to next step.
3. Check fuel pressure. If fuel pressure is okay, go to next step. If fuel pressure is too high, check fuel pressure regulator and fuel return line. Repair as necessary. If fuel pressure is too low, check fuel pump, fuel feed line, fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator.
Repair as necessary.
4. Start engine and run at 3000 RPM with no load and transmission in Park or Neutral, until radiator fan comes on. Using scan tool, check HO2S-1 output data.
If voltage stays at less than 0.3 volt or more than 0.6 volt, replace HO2S-1. If voltage does not stay at less than 0.3 volt or more than 0.6 volt, go to next step.
5. Using a vacuum pump, apply vacuum to intake manifold side of EVAP purge control solenoid valve. If EVAP purge control solenoid valve holds vacuum, check EGR system. If EGR system is okay, replace fuel injectors. If EVAP purge control solenoid valve does not hold vacuum, replace EVAP purge control solenoid valve.
Can anyone guide through changing the fuel pressure regulator?

How would one know a fuel pressure sensor is bad and how would it be replaced? For Saab 9-5 1999.

While accelerating, car bogs down. Took it to Auto Zone, was told it "could" be fuel pressure regulator. How do i find and change the fuel pressure regulator? Is it difficult to do this...
