Fuel system for Bank One too Lean code

    I have a 98 Accord that is showing a P0171 (fuel system in Bank One too
    lean) code, and also a P0170 (fuel compensation value for Bank One exceeded
    the specified range).

    These codes have come on intermittently, but usually go off after a day or
    two. This time it is staying on longer.

    Other symptoms: an occasional fuel smell, and earlier there was a
    hesitation when I would accelerate from a stop (even once or twice bucking
    and almost stalling).

    Where should I start? I have heard vacuum lines, fuel injector, mass air
    flow sensor, and lazy O2 sensor so far.

    4 or 6 cylinder?

  3. I doubt the fours have cylinder banks.

    A 4 cylinder IS bank one. The code is the same whether it is a 4 or 6
    cylinder. The diagnoses will be different depending on whether it is a 4 or
    6 cylinder. So Steve, mind your own business.

    other than Usenet., assclown.

    Now that we've established that I have a 4-cylinder and the location of bank
    one, could someone please respond to my original question?
