Yes, it's serious. It's usually either because your MAF sensor is dirty, or one or more fuel injectors aren't working properly. Check out this link. You should still be able to drive a car that's running too lean, but you should never, under any circumstances drive it fast or put it under heavy load. From the link Causes A code P0171 may mean that one ...

Having a lean condition isn't good for the motor. Lean is higher oxygen and lower fuel. Oxygen burns hotter than fuel. Being lean is to have a condition where the fire in your engine is hotter. The results are increased wear on valves and potentially melting the aluminum of the head. The melting is under extreme conditions. You are in a situation where ...

tl dr - Upgrade to a 2500 or 2500HD pick-up. There are several issues you'll notice when hauling at the maximum and over the maximum of the towing capacity of the Avalanche. First off, the 2007 & 2008 MYs came with the 4L60e transmission. Why GM ever put these in a pickup truck is beside me. These were meant to go into passenger cars. While they are ...

From your brief description, it sounds like the clutch is going out of it. If you smell anything like hot brakes during clutch usage, this may be the case. Also, if the RPMs do not have a linear (engine speed and vehicle speed go up together) as you accelerate, this may be another symptom. If you have the vehicle in 3rd gear at a slower speed and press hard ...

The differences between the floor jack and the tranny jack: Tranny Jack has 4 points on a metal plate that can be adjusted to change the angle of the tranny jack and how it meets up with the transmission. This feature is necessary. Tranny jack has a very wide stance to prevent a top heavy jack from falling over with an incredibly heavy item. A wider base ...

See if the instructions located on this page will help you decide. Manual transmissions, while easier to deal with than automatics, are nothing to be trifled with. If you don't have a lot of mechanical know how, it's not something to be tackling on your own. If you get it apart and cannot put it back together again, a tranny shop is going to not want to take ...

Possible Cause A possible cause is clutch adjustment. If the clutch is dragging you can experience these symptoms. Solution I believe you have a hydraulic clutch. If your brake fluid reservoir is low and a little bit of air got into the system you would need to bleed the air out in order for the clutch to become completely disengaged from the engine ...

The Tuff Torx engineer I talked with recommended using 5W-50 synthetic oil. I use it in my JD and Husqvarna mowers. My JD is 23 years old ( Used 10W30 for 18 of those years) and the Husqvarna is 8 years.

If it's similar to the Polo, having gear linkage cables, they could have been knocked out of adjustment, or if disconnected probably were not put back exactly. Check out this YouTube video showing the adjustment procedure.
