96 Ford Contour check engine light is on - code read: P0174


I have a 97 Ford Contour V6. Its check engine light has been on for a while and i went to an autozone and get the code as P0174 with the following description:

"The PCM has determined that during testing, the fuel system for bank 2 was too lean. (Bank 1 identifies the location of cyclinder #1, while bank 2 identifies the cylinders on the opposite bank)"

Any ideas on how I can fix that?

Thank you.

This means the MAF (mass air flow) sensor is dirty or needs to be replaced on the side that does not have the number 1 cylinder. I am not sure on your engine which side that would be. It could also mean a vacuum leak.

Check out this link that describes the codes and fixes.


Good luck.
