My check engine light has been off and on for the past cour of months now, it's showing up as 125 and a 171, but I think the 171 Is just a result of the 125. Have had a couple different mechanics look at it and started a thread on a forum about my car. Nobody can figure out the problem. I haven't really noticed any negative side effects but I don't like driving around with a CEL. I'm thinking maybe the O2 sensors or a dirty MAF. I was also told it could be a computer problem. Please help.

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.

But what about the 125 code? The 171 doesn't even show up thy much, it's more the 125 I'm worried about. Any thoughts?
