My check engine light has come on. I had it scanned and codes P0171 and P0174 came up. What should I check to clear up these codes? Will it be expensive? I have a warranty with a $100 deductible that will soon run out. If I can fix it myself for less I will do that.

HI there,

These codes are indicating lean mixture on both banks, so I would start to look for a vacuum leak that is affecting both banks, somewhere in the main induction maybe, start here.
