Engine sputters and dies

Without warning my 2000 Chrysler Town &Country, 200000 miles started sputtering, slowing down, and eventually died. It would restart and idle good, then drive ok for a few feet or so, and fail again. While I usually top off the tank at about 3/4, today I had between 1/4 and 1/2 a tank. Have a code P0171 which could be several things. Again, the car has run perfectly for many, many miles, and this was quite unexpected. Suggestions?

would probably start by checking fuel pressure.

Many, but mostly related to too much air in the air/fuel mix.


Failed or dirty MAF would be place to start at.
