2002 Sportage P0171 Code

I cleaned the MAF (twice) with CRC MAF cleaner and still did not cure the issue. I searched for any bad, loose, or fallen off hoses and didn't locate any. Has anybody else ecperienced this code and what did you do to correct the issue? WHat did you do to correct the problem?

I have the same situation with my '02 Sporty and have done what you did to try to correct the problem. Same result. But I think it's time to replace the MAF sensor. Dang! those things ain't cheap. Best price I can find is about $72 for a rebuilt one. Plus a $40 core charge.

Guess we just have to bite the bullet and spend the money:frown:

I had the same problem with my 2001 kia sportage. It was the idle air control valve that was cracked. I would spray some starter fuild or carb cleaner on and around the IAC to see if the engine idle increase or decrease. If your looking at your engine, the IAC is the black valve on the throttle body.
