What trouble codes are you getting?

Have the MAF cleaned with MAF cleaner and retest. A dirty MAF can result in improper readings.

What is your engine capacity?

Pulling the MAF would result in the PCM compensating for a faulty MAF and run under a richer condition so that might not be the problem.

Here are the diagnostics for P0171 and P0174. Check through and see if you can come up with anything.

CIRCUIT TEST H - FUEL CONTROL
Diagnostic Aids

Perform this test when instructed during QUICK TEST or if directed by other test procedures.

Only use this test to diagnose the following:
HO2S and sensor connection.
Vacuum systems.
Fuel injector and/or fuel injector circuitry.
Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
Electrical circuits (HO2S, HO2S GND, INJ 1-8, VPWR and SIG RTN).

NOTE:
HO2S may be displayed on scan tester as O2S.
To prevent replacement of good components, be aware the following non-EEC areas may be cause of driveability concerns:

Ignition system.
Faulty evaporative emission system.
EGR and/or PCV system.
Air intake system.
Engine oil contamination.
Fuel system.
Exhaust system leaks or restriction.
Engine cooling system.

On all models, SIG RTN is test pin No. 91. VPWR is test pin No. 71 and 97.

NOTE:
Test procedure begins with step 41). No test procedures have been
omitted.

41) DTC P0171, P0172, P0174 Or P0175: HO2S Not Switching

DTCs P0171 and P0174 indicate air/fuel ratio is correcting rich for an overly lean condition. DTCs P0172 and P0175 indicate air/fuel ratio is correcting lean for an overly rich condition.

Possible causes are as follows:

Fuel system malfunction.
EGR system malfunction.
Air intake or vacuum system leak.
Engine oil level too high.
Excessive internal engine wear.

Inspect engine for obvious defects in specified systems. Repair or replace as necessary. If no faults are found, go to next step.

42) Perform KOER Self-Test With ignition off, connect scan tester to DLC. Disconnect fuel vapor hose from intake manifold. Plug fitting at intake manifold. Start engine, and operate at 2000 RPM for one minute.

If none of these DTCs are present, proceed as follows:
If diagnosing DTCs P1171, or P1174, go to step 52).

43) Disconnect suspect HO2S. Turn ignition on. Using scan tool, access HO2S PID of suspect sensor. Connect jumper wire between HO2S SIG and VPWR circuit at HO2S harness connector. If spark occurs, remove jumper wire and go to step 47). If HO2S voltage is more than 1.3 volts, go to next step. If voltage is 1.3 volts or less, go to step 46).

44) Check Circuit Resistance
Turn ignition off. Connect PCM to breakout box. Measure resistance between battery ground terminal and SIG RTN terminal of HO2S harness connector. If resistance is less than 5 ohms, go to step 52). If resistance is 5 ohms or more, go to next step.

45) Turn ignition off. Disconnect PCM from breakout box. Measure resistance between test pin No. 91 (SIG RTN) at breakout box and SIG RTN terminal of HO2S harness connector. If resistance is less than 5 ohms, replace PCM and repeat QUICK TEST. If resistance is 5 ohms or more, repair open circuit and repeat QUICK TEST.

46) Check Resistance Of HO2S Ground Circuits
Turn ignition off. Install breakout box, leaving PCM disconnected. Disconnect suspect HO2S wiring harness connector. Inspect connector for damage and repair as necessary. Measure resistance between HO2S test pin at breakout box and HO2S terminal at sensor wiring harness connector. If resistance is less than 5 ohms, go to next step. If any resistance is 5 ohms or more, repair open circuit and repeat
QUICK TEST.

47) Check HO2S Circuit For Short To Ground
Turn ignition off. Leave breakout box installed and PCM disconnected. Disconnect HO2S. Measure resistance between HO2S SIG circuit test pin and test pins No. 24, 51, 77, 91 and 103 at breakout box.

QUICK TEST. If any resistance is 10,000 ohms or less, repair short to power and repeat QUICK TEST.

51) Turn ignition off. Disconnect suspect HO2S. Turn ignition on. Using scan tool, access HO2S PID of suspect sensor. If HO2S voltage is more than 0.45 volts, replace HO2S and repeat QUICK TEST. If voltage is 0.45 volts or less, go to next step.

52) Check Fuel Pressure
Release fuel system pressure. With ignition off, install fuel pressure gauge. Ensure manifold vacuum is connected to fuel pressure regulator. Start engine and operate at 2500 RPM. If vehicle will not start, cycle key on and off. If fuel system pressure is as specified, go to next step. If fuel system pressure is not as specified, go to CIRCUIT TEST HC.

53) Check System Ability To Hold Fuel Pressure
With fuel pressure gauge installed, cycle ignition from OFF to ON position 3-4 times to pressurize fuel system (DO NOT start engine). If fuel pressure does not remain at specification for 60 seconds, go to step 4) under CIRCUIT TEST HC. If fuel pressure remains within 5 psi of highest fuel pressure reading for 60 seconds, proceed as follows:

For no-start vehicles, go to step 55).
For DTCs P1130, P1150, P0171, P0172, P0174 and P0175, go to step 54).

54) Check Ability To Hold Fuel Pressure
With fuel pressure gauge installed, cycle ignition from OFF to ON position 3-4 times to pressurize fuel system (DO NOT start engine). Note fuel pressure. If fuel pressure remains within 5 psi of original pressure for at least 10 seconds, go to step 56). If fuel pressure drops more than 5 psi, go to step 58).

55) Check Ability Of Injectors To Deliver Fuel
With fuel pressure gauge installed, cycle ignition from OFF to ON position 3-4 times to pressurize fuel system (DO NOT start engine). Note fuel pressure. Disconnect Inertia Fuel Switch (IFS). Crank engine for 5 seconds. If fuel pressure remains within 5 psi (34 kPa) of original pressure, reconnect IFS switch and go to next step. If fuel pressure drops more than 5 psi (34 kPa), repair fuel system as necessary.

56) Check Fuel Injector & Circuit Resistance
Turn ignition off. Disconnect PCM 104-pin connector. Inspect connector for damage or corrosion and repair as necessary. Install EEC-V Breakout Box (014-00950), leaving PCM disconnected. Measure and record resistance between suspected fuel injector circuit test pin and test pin No. 71 and 97 at breakout box.

Resistance should be 11-18 ohms. If resistance is not correct, go to next step. If resistance is correct, go to step 59).

57) Check Resistance Of Fuel Injector Circuit
Turn ignition off. Disconnect suspect fuel injector wiring harness connector. Measure resistance between test pins No. 71 and 97 at breakout box and fuel injector VPWR terminal at wiring harness connector. Measure resistance between fuel injector signal test pin(s) at breakout box and same fuel injector circuit terminal at each fuel injector wiring harness connector. If each resistance is less than 5 ohms, go to next step. If each resistance is 5 ohms or more, repair open circuit and repeat QUICK TEST.

59) Check Fuel Injector Circuit For Short To Power Or Ground

If misfire DTCs are displayed with fuel control DTCs, go to CIRCUIT TEST HD, step 20).

64) Check HO2S Integrity
DTCs P0130, P0150, P0131, and P0151 indicate HO2S switches slow or doesn't switch, is always lean or fuel is at adaptive limit. Possible causes are as follows:

Moisture inside HO2S causing short to ground.
HO2S coated with contaminates.
HO2S circuit open or shorted to ground.
Turn ignition off. Inspect HO2S and circuit for damage or contamination. Repair or replace HO2S or wiring as necessary. Start engine and operate at 2000 RPM for 3 minutes. Turn ignition off. Connect scan tool to DLC. Perform KOER self-test while monitoring HO2S
voltage. If HO2S voltage is 0.5 volt or more at the end of test, go to step 70). If voltage is less than 0.5 volt, replace HO2S sensor and repeat QUICK TEST.

65) Perform KOER Self-Test
Start engine, and warm it to normal operating temperature. Turn ignition off. Disconnect suspect HO2S. Using a jumper wire, connect HO2S terminal of wiring harness connector to negative battery terminal. Perform KOER self-test. If DTC P1131 or P1151 is present, remove jumper wire and go to next step. If DTC P1131 or P1151 is not present, check PCM connector and service if necessary. If connector is okay, replace PCM. Repeat QUICK TEST.

66) HO2S Check
Leave HO2S disconnected. Connect DVOM between HO2S SIG terminal and SIG RTN terminal of HO2S wiring harness connector. Disconnect any vacuum hose from vacuum tree. Start engine and operate at 2000 RPM. If DVOM reads less than 0.4 volt within 30 seconds, go to step 70). If DVOM does not read as specified, replace HO2S and repeat QUICK TEST.
