    Now this is a loaded question knowing there are multiple things that can make a car run lean on 1 bank. Was wondering if there is something common to check first? Car is a 98 4.6l auto transmission

    How old are your O2 sensors? I recently had the same issue. New upstream O2 sensors fixed mine...

    Any exhaust leaks? Passenger side manifold to downpipe gasket if bad could also cause a lean code
