Has anyone experienced this code?  My Venice is currently throwing it.

I haven't seen it personally, but found reference to it saying "Fuel Trim System Lean." Also suggested unmetered air entering the engine (aftermarket air filter, loose oil fill cap, oil dip stick not firmly seated) can trigger the code. These don't seem likely to me but probably worth a check. Aftermarket exhaust system was also mentioned. HTH and good luck!

Thanks - as a matter of fact I had checked the oil cap and just a smidge off - cleared the code and it hasn't come back.   Ah, modern vehicles.   Thanks much for the reply!
