CEL light came on 3rd week of Dec-2012. Light stayed on. Car was parked for 1 1/2 I was out on vacation. When I came back on April 17th, battery dead, went to get a new one at Toy dealer. A month later the car lost power. Took it to a mechanic kept on giving code P0171..mechanic have checked and installed new or used parts: MAF, fuel injectors, fuel filter, catalytic, fuel pump ratio, sensor, cleaned the throtell n I went to get a used computer memory since mechanic thinks that its not making contact since now wont get a code with the meter machine. After all he has done and checked still with the problem. After the last shot of installing fuel injectors I told him NOT TO DO ANYTHING else on the car. Now, the car has power, but it cranks/stalls when I stop on a red light 4 a bit too long it cranks/idle and stalls dies. So, I shift to park and start the car again. MECHANICS that have looked at it R telling me its very strange, that they have checked everything n now goes back to have regular power but keep on stalling when driving. so now is CEL on, n when smog check did not pass is SHOWING ANOTHER CODE p1130...??? please ..help I dont know what to do..thanx, Maria Leonor
