Cool Running to lean

My check engine light came on in my 2001 sable and i had it tested(with a hand held under the dash)and it read 2 codes both saying "too lean". I ran a bottle of sea foam thru and it still stumbles while driving.

Use a can of carburetor cleaner and also check the intake for a vacuum leak.

Re: Running to lean

Check your exhaust for a leak that will throw the sensors off.
