Default Re: Service Engine Soon - P0171 & P0174 HELP?

P1511 is a throttle body code. Could be weak return spring. Bad sensor. Or butterfly is binding.

The book standard labor to replace the throttle body is .9 hours. You are being overcharged by .5 hours for that. $360 for the part is about right.

Any garage with the right equipment to "recalibrate" the ECM can do it.

Actually if you are mildly mechanically inclined, you could probably replace the parts, then drive it to the dealer for recalibration. It may not drive perfectly, but it should get there.

Your Honor Student is merely a pawn in my Min Pin's diabolical world domination plot.

Obey the Min Pin
