BUCKING OR CHUGING

2005 Kia Sedona • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 133,000 miles

2005 Kia sadona van code 302. Missfire set once has not reset. Also code po 171. Lean condishtion. It has reset. When driveing the car it will for a short time start bucking or chuging and some times die if at lower rpm. But all other times runs good. Could this be fuel or elect.

Could be caused by one of the following below: 1. Vacuum leaks
2. EGR and PCV valve.
3. Low fuel pressure.
4. Dirty fuel injectors.
5. Mass Air Flow Sensor.
6. Oxygen Sensor.

Check the fuel pressure with a gauge -to rule out both

Def check the fuel pressure, also keep in mind just because you have good fuel pressure doesnt mean anything. Always check if you have a good fuel FLOW too. Alot of time techs miss that flow concept. I am not sure what excatly the specs are as far as flow goes. I'll look for it and let you know.
