Have an 03 cts that is throwing p0171,300,301,302,303,305 codes. I have replaced Maf sensor due to having p171,174 the past month off and on now just getting 171. The Maf sensor has been replaced twice this past month thinking I had a defective one, had smoke test, and fuel pressure test done too. None seem to be the problem and no shop can find a problem so they say. Just got the misfire codes today can someone help me out I'm getting frustrated at this problem.
Powertrain - Fuel and Air Metering - ISO/SAE Controlled
Fuel Trim System Lean Conditions
No PCM codes set, ECT input from 176-230°F, engine speed 1000-4000 rpm (0-4000 rpm on VIN 1), throttle angle steady below 91%, VSS under 70 mph, purge duty cycle below 80%, then the PCM detected that the LONGFT was over 100, or that the SHRTFT was below 94, either condition met for over 25 seconds
Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 has detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust).
Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1. The P0171 is one of the more common trouble codes.
This code is triggered by the first downstream (front) O2 sensor. The sensor provides a reading of the air:fuel ratio leaving the engine's cylinders, and the vehicles powertrain/engine control module (PCM/ECM) uses that reading and adjusts to keep the engine running at that optimum ratio of 14.7:1. If something is not right and the PCM cannot maintain the 14.7:1 ratio, but rather there is too much air, it triggers this code.
I just put brand new air filter on new Maf sensor had fuel injectors cleaned and throttle body. Haven't made it to my local Cadillac the light just came back on today and they r closed on weekends. My main concern right now is to y I'm having 5/6 cylinders misfiring with the p0300-305 the only one not present is p304. I spoke with a Cadillac dealer technician about the p0171 code and what I've done and he said its highly possible that my throttle body wiring is bad. But that's just an assumption based off the info given over the phone. The misfire codes just showed up today but it seems to run just fine no hesitation, lag in acceleration none of that just codes
So I recently found that my air box wasn't put back together right by a local shop that did my smoke test. The bottom wasn't sealed so that could be part of my problem and also coming to the dealership I was told that the oil leaking into my spark plug well could cause me to be riding lean on one of my banks not the other tho. More to update later when problem is finally solved completely.
