Hi,

I have a check engine light on with code p0171. I took it to autozone they said my car is not getting enough fuel, more of air than fuel. Also my engine is making some noise when I first start it on. I have a little bit of rattling sound. I'm trying to find out what cause it so I can fix it. Please let me know thanks.

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.

P0171 indicates a lean condition bank one upstream O2 sensor.

This could be an O2 sensor, or a bad injector, low fuel pressure etc.

If original sensor, I would replace it and erase code.
