There is no code17. All codes for that vehicle are 3 digit codes so assuming you may have a code 171, that would mean lean mixture and make a little sense. Check the engine over carefully for vacuum leaks. Listen for hissing noise and try to follow it to it's source. This engine is notorious for rubber connectors and hoses that suck a hole right through them.
