Both codes are for the fuel system running to lean, check for vacuum leaks and also the air flow sensor if faulty can cause this problem as well.

I took it to a shop an they said it could be the transmission. But it changes gear good engine sounds good but a little hiss sound. What do u think. Thank you. And mass air flow good too.

You need another shop. The 171,174 codes are related to long term trims being off from either vacuum leaks, pcv system, low fuel pressure or mass air flow sensor.
