    Code P0174 Saturn Description
    The Engine Control Module ECM controls a Closed Loop air/fuel metering system to provide the best possible combination of drivability, fuel economy, and emission control. The ECM monitors the Heated O2 Sensor (HO2S) signal voltage and adjusts the fuel delivery based on the signal voltage while in Closed Loop. A change made to the fuel delivery changes the long and short-term fuel trim values. The short-term fuel trim values change rapidly in response to the HO2S signal voltages. These changes fine-tune the engine fueling. The long-term fuel trim values change in response to trends in the short-term fuel trim. The long-term fuel trim makes coarse adjustments to fueling to re-center and restore control to short-term fuel trim. The ideal fuel trim values are around 0 %. A positive fuel trim value indicates that the ECM is adding fuel to compensate for a lean condition. A negative fuel trim value indicates that the ECM is reducing the amount of fuel to compensate for a rich condition. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set when the average long-term fuel trim weighted average value is greater or less than a calibrated value.

    The P0174 code means that more air than gasoline is detected in the exhaust gases exiting the combustion chamber. If the P0174 is set in along with the P0171 code, it is highly likely that the problem is caused by an intake leak. If there are no intake leaks, the next step is to replace the air filter and clean the Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. If the problem persists the MAF or Front Heated Oxygen (O2) Sensor will need to be replaced.

    However there is no MAF only an MAP on this engine so the problem is likely the front O2.
