P2197, P0171, P0174 Codes
Well, my cars engine light came on, here are the codes.
The car just started to idle high yesterday and also idles a bit rough. I have noticed a bit of power loss under WOT pulls in 3rd and 4th over the last week. Any assistance on the fix would be greatly appreciated.
I did get a COP wet once and had to take the plug cover off and dry it. Other than that never had any electrical issues.
Car has 92k on it, I just replaced the K&N Filter 2 days ago and the plugs were changed about 20k-30k ago as well as the fuel filter.
I haven't cleaned the MAF in a long while. Edit: The rear O2 sensors are turned off in my tune.
Mods are in the sig.

DTC: p2197 Ford says the cause may be an engine vacuum leak, possibly around the PCV valve or in the PCV vacuum plumbing. Such a leak may set the following DTC: P2197. The code may indicate a lean fuel condition or a lack of heated oxygen sensor (HEGO) switching. Ford says not to replace the oxygen sensor, MAF sensor or PCM because the cause may only be a vacuum leak or an incorrect sized PCV valve that flows too much air.
I`d look for a vacuum leak

The PCV tube going from the valve cover to the intake is fine. What's next.

I've reset it and it comes back, plus it's not running correctly. Going to clean the MAF tonight, i don't expect it to help, but it won't hurt.

Well cleaned the MAF and a few electrical plugs. Now I'm pissed, the plug that goes to the A/C broke. Off to Ford to buy another in the AM, I'm probably just going to let them look at it.

Did take it to them, and you guys were right, a hose behind the S/C was letting air in. Wish I would have found it myself, but it's running great now.
