A few weeks ago, CEL came up with p0171 (running lean)

we cleaned MAFS, replaced air filter, spark plugs, flushed engine coolant. He then reset the CEL

3 days later, CEL came back. Can't take it back to mechanic because I've since left the area.

NOW sometimes when we start engine, it will slowly die out or sound like it will die out. Yesterday as we pulled out of the driveway, the engine sounded like it was gonna die, I gas'd it and nothing happend, seemed like no fuel.

What next? This is my wife's car and dont want it to die while she's in the middle of the road

2000 GT auto with 160,000

thanks

please read in the threads 'is my car supposed to do this?' in the Repair and Maintenece forum... i have just discussed a great length to this issue (cos' my car spent the whole week in the workshop, due to many problems. one of which, is the car would die when it come to intersection / traffic, like it is suffocating without getting enough fuel supply)

Basically you should check / replace:
1. Fuel Filter - never trust the manual which say the fuel filter don;t need any replacement
2. Bad spark plugs
3. Injector / injector seals.....

let me know once you sort uot your prob, or PM me if you need further info....
