Default got code p0171 little help needed

did some searching and most people end up with cracked vac lines or cracked pcv hose has anyone had a cracked oil seperator on the 2.3l thinking about buying it along with the pcv valve and hose



have to remove the intake to find the vac leak and decided to just replace this stuff when its off.

did the carb cleaner test and seems the leak is coming from behind the intake manifold.

Have you reset the ECU since? How many drives cycles since you replaced the PCV hose?

Sometimes, it will take the ECU a bit of time to adjust.

The workshop manual doesn't even list that code as a fault code for the L3 engine.

But for the AJ (the V6) it says it's a fuel related issue. Too lean to be precise.


Are you experiencing any symptoms? Do you have access to your own code reader? I would clear it out and see if it pops back up again.
