replacing the intake manifold gaskets on 2000 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

I am getting 2 Lean codes P0171 and P0174. My mechanic says that my intake manifold gaskets are leaking. After replacing them he says that I have to replace the drain and replace the oil. I thought that it was antifreeze that ran through the Manifold not oil. Oil in the valve covers. Thank you

He probably just advising you that the oil needs changing as debris from the old intake manifold gasket has possibly gotten into the oil
