Hi, My car shows obd code 171, the system is too lean, I took it to the shop and mechnic seemes like doesnt no the problem. I have paid over three hundred dollars already. The engine light is still on. Before my car used to shut off whenever I slowed down like on intersection and stuff. Never shut off on freeway. I dont know what the problem is, but I did have K and n Air filter on ( Oily air filter). I have replace thie air filter but the car still have engine light on.

Hi Mustansar,

Did you replace the O2 sensor?

When the engine stalls during idling, you need to check

1. Throttle body and idle adjust screw for clogging.
2. EACV
3. MAP sensor, correct hose installation.
4. Injectors as you are running lean.
5. Fuel pressure regulator, least likely but possible as Honda regulators are very reliable.
6. TPS calibration.
