Nooooo, my streak is over!!! (CEL)
Original owner, 13 years, 175,000 miles and I have never had my CEL come on...until today.
I didn't feel, see, hear or smell anything odd so I have no idea what it could be.
Fortunately, my dad has a code reader and I am having dinner with him tomorrow so I'll find out what it is tomorrow night.Clint (TX) 2001 Silverado LS 4.8L auto 2wd ECSB [GARAGE]

I just checked my codes. The light is on steady. I am getting:
P0171 System too lean (Bank 1)
P0174 System too lean (Bank 2)
I believe this is fuel/air mix correct? "Too lean" meaning too much air, not enough fuel for the amount of air coming in, yes/no?

McClintoc.....correct regarding the Amount of Air "Too Much" the Sensor's provide a reading of the Air:Fuel Ratio leaving the Engine's Cylinders, and the Vehicles Power-Train/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 that ratio, but rather there is Too Much Air, it Triggers these Codes.
***These Codes Basically mean that the Oxygen Sensor on Bank 1 and Oxygen Sensor on Bank 2 has detected a Lean Condition "Too much Oxygen in the Exhaust"....On V-8 Engines, Bank 1 is on the Driver-Side of the Engine that has Cylinder #1 and Bank 2 is on the Passenger-Side of the Engine,
***Here are some of the Items to Check,
Check All Vacuum and PCV Hoses, Replace and/or Repair if needed
Check for Leak Downstream of the MAF Sensor.
Clean MAF Sensor
Check for a Failed or Faulty Oxygen Sensor

I have never cleaned my MAF sensor and my O2 sensors are originaly. I figure cleaning my MAF and replacing my O2 sensors is a good place to start.
What the best way to clean a MAF?
On a side note, I did not clear the CEL but it was off this morning...

I would start with cleaning the MAF Sensor, and then check for Vacuum Leaks, as doing these 2-items will cost you very little, and may correct the problem, and for cleaning you want to use Only....CRC's MAF Sensor(Pictured below)and the Video shows how to Clean a MAF Sensor....
