The two codes that you have provided suggest these possibilities, at minimum, which possibilities may exist alone or in combination: an air leak after the mass air flow (MAF) sensor, such as a torn intake boot, or bad intake manifold gaskets; a dirty or faulty mass air flow sensor; faulty oxygen sensor, incorrect fuel pressure, leaking positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve, clogged exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) port, and leaking brake booster. To get the actual fault(s) pinpointed and resolved, please simply request a check engine light diagnostic - DTC P0171, P0174 and the responding certified mechanic will get this investigated and resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
