You are having problems with the fuel injection system poppet injectors not opening up or stuck open causing the misfire. You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator or you did not seal the fuel lines into the regulator good and they are leaking. Trace down the fuel smell you are getting and fix, that then you may be okay from there. Needing O2 sensors and coil packs won't help either.

Since codes P0171 and P0174 could mean a few different things, have a mechanic come scan the computer and see if the problem can be pinpointed.
