    check engine light question

    so i get int he car today and find my CEL is on. i have no mods as of yet so i think what could be wrong. i go to autozone and they tell me the o2 sensor is bad or something. i looked and it said p0171 i think. anyone know what that is? any suggestions what to do before i haul it in to the dealership. on the way over i also noticed my turbo sounds like it flutters instead of a straight spool and i can smell gas when im idling and letting the air vent in as if im parked in a puddle of it. any info would help. i tried to search but i came up short or not looking for the right answers. thanks

    if the gas smell occurs only when cold that is a recall you may want to get checked out.
