2003 Chrysler Town & Country: OBD Code P0171?

Check engine light code P0171.
This code says p0171 fuel system lean, bank 1 sensor 1.

The Sensor has to be replaced.

The most probable reason for this trouble code is a faulty oxygen sensor.
But before directly replacing O2 sensor i recommend to make sure there is no vacuum leak and also check wiring to the B1S1 O2 sensor.If all this checked ok,then replace the sensor.
Make sure to use a genuine Mopar oxygen sensor as I have seen too many troubles with aftermarket O2 sensors .Use quality parts and branded parts.

For you help:------
Bank 1 is the rear bank, closer to the firewall
Sensor 1 is the upstream O2 sensor ( in the exhaust manifold), that is before catalytic converter.

This details will help.
