Hi I took my car to auto zone and the codes that they came back with are p0171, and p0174. I was wondering what the cost of repair would be for something like this. Thanks. Kerrie

Kerrie, you dissapointment me with a complete lack of symptoms of your car. OK, you told us about the codes. Now, does the car run rough, lack power, rough idle, hard to start, won't stay running, sputter on acceleration? Is the car perfectly fine except for the check engine light and resulting codes?

At the age of your car, I personally would run a bottle of fuel injector cleaner through a tank of gas and have the fuel filter changed. I would also change the air filter. We have to eliminate the easy and affordable stuff first. I'm probably talking $15 for a fuel filter and $8 for an air filter. A backyard mechanic could change both in an hour. This is just My opinion of what I would do.
