I got an oil change 2 days ago and now my check engine light is on giving code p0171. I've cleaned the MAF sensor but still the same problem... gas mileage is better but the light is still on. The car is jerking when stoped at a light idling rough. Sounds like a leak. How much to come out and fix the issue???????
My car has 96000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

To answer your question as to the cost, it depends on exactly what is wrong. As described below, there are many underlying malfunctions that can cause diagnostic trouble code P0171. Typically, a diagnostic is performed, the exact cause is pinpointed, and the results (including the cost of the repair) are explained to the customer to any desired degree of detail. The causes of lean operation, such as if you have diagnostic trouble code P0171 are easiest to pinpoint by looking at the secondary firing patterns on all cylinders. That will confirm if the too lean condition, that has caused a code to set, affects all or just a few cylinders, and in which bank of the engine (in your case, with a 4 cylinder you have only one bank) . If not all cylinders are affected, a mechanic would test for defective individual fuel injectors. However, if all cylinders are affected, you would test, in turn: the fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump pressure, check for a clogged fuel filter, vacuum leak, faulty oxygen sensor(s) and faulty mass air flow sensor. Rarely, the cause will be a faulty powertrain control module.
