Check engine lights on! When I fix the problem will the light go out on its own?

Error codes P0171 and P0174.
I will clean the MAF module and look for large hose vacuum leak. Maybe replace fuel filter.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning.

These two codes indicate a lean running engine.

The most common issues are low fuel pressure and vacuum leaks. I attached possible issue below for you.

If you correctly repair the issue, the light will clear itself in fifty key starts with no recurring issues.

Do you know the long term trim readings?
