My engine light is on, the auto store never gave me the code number but said "Bank1 and Bank2 were "Lean" and that the code is pending. I dont know what this is supposed to meen. I have changed the MAF,fuel filter,pcv valve, plugs,wires,coil pack,o2sensors(all but 1).It idles high, feels like its going to stall. The guy at the auto store told me that i had to drive about 100miles and the light should go off? Is that true, or is he wrong? Any help would be appreciated. My car is due for inspection and it wont pass with the light on. Some please help!!!! Thanks in advance:)

Dealer replaced leaking hydroboost. Immediately notice much more effort required to stop. Dealer replace H/B unit second time. No better. Dealer said it tested 3000psi so they are done with it. Since then ive done the brake material, master cylinder all to no avail. Dealer parts guys rechecked the part number on the H/B and are sure its correct. somebody else recommend eplace P/S pump and hoses another said check H/B rod throw. Another said there was a change to the priorty valve in later models to biased more hydraulic fuild to steering during braking. Which direction first?
