Hi Stevis, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Pinging could be caused bu an engine overheating, knock sensor not retarding the ignition timing and an EGR valve not opening and increasing the combustion chamber temperature

P0171

Lean fuel condition could be caused by one of the following below:

1. Vacuum leaks
2. EGR and PCV valve.
3. Low fuel pressure.
4. Dirty fuel injectors.
5. Mass Air Flow Sensor.
6. Oxygen sensor
