sorry for that response. it has a vacuum leak as I said in a past answer. you will need a shop with a scanner to monitor the short and long term fuel trims to verify. not something you can diag without the right stuff.

thanx Roy. ive removed the air box and plastic engine cover so i can follow all vacuum lines, so far all is good. i realize i need correct tools but hasnt stopped me from trying to find the obvious. im a system tech by trade and its my personality to investigate. ur reply is appreciated!

P0171 bank 1 too lean, P0174 is bank 2 too lean, P1150 Air Fuel Ratio sensor malfunction bank 2 sensor 1, I would be looking at that O2 sensor reading on the scantool to see how it reads compared to the other bank.
