Back in April my car had several problems at once - battery, coolant leak, and supposed dying fuel pump (ECM-261A). I had these all replaced and everything worked fine. Six weeks later my car hesitated, died (exactly the way it did with the fuel pump - in video) and wouldn't start whatsoever - but no code. After an hour of sitting, it started fine and has been working ever since. This problem seems to be random and comes without warning, which is not good for out of town driving.
Today, it threw a p0171 - lean condition in bank 1. I apparently didn't push the oil dipstick in all the way after checking it. Could this code be caused of a loose dipstick or possibly related to a fuel pump issue?
I plan on taking it to a garage asap, but would like to have more insight on this code.
have the same problem?
