Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 126000 miles
The check engine light is on. It is giving the code P0171. The car randomly kills while driving. It maybe several days or weeks in between, but it wil kill usually when turning but it has done it without turning.
Also when at a complete stop, and then beginning to accelerate forward, the car randomly revs up and then goes into gear hard, kind of like trying to lunge forward but then doesn't. This only happens when at a dead stop and then pressing on the gas to go. It also happens randomly but very often probably 1 out of every 2 or 3 stops it does this.
Thanks for any help.
