    Default new guy here, i got a code 171 and 174

    my 2000 silverado has been a little slow to start up latey. check engine light came on today. has a code 0171 and 0174, i looked them up and it's a lean right and left bank. i'm not that great on diagnosing problems so i did what i knew. i changed the fuel filter(was very dirty), cleaned the map sensor screen(just a little dusty), cleaned the throttle body, and washed& dryed the reuseable air filter(very dirty). changed the oil and filter while i was at it. cleared the codes and drove the truck. the check engine light came on again. so now what might it be? i had the fuel pump replaced about 3 months ago.when it was taking a while to start.

    Trouble Codes P0171 and P0174 are telling you there's an Issue(Running Lean)with the.....02 Sensor's......on both upstream 02 Sensor's, IIRC which are located before the.....Catalytic Converters.

    Those codes and your driving symptoms are classic for low fuel pressure. Get a gauge and test it.

    i've never done that before. is it a simple procedure to do ? if it is, i'll go down to autozone and see if they have a gauge that will work on my truck
