My CE came on recently, so I had the local dealer run the codes today. The mech said the code was "Running lean on Bank 1 & 2" so he advised me to replace the Mass Airflow Sensor. It also triggered a "Catalyst" code, so he advised one of my cats could be going bad. My bird just ticked over 150,000 also.
Any thoughts from ya'll???

Ditto what he said. I had the same code on my 97, I cleaned the MAF, pulled #15fuse to reset the computator and its all good!! I found a can of MAF cleaner at the local Schucks made by CRC, it seems to do the job without having to touch any critical parts.

Same thing happened to me. Cleaned it a few weeks ago..so far so good.. and it runs much better too! It felt like my car was starving for gas, I would accelerate and it would slightly lurch forward. No more of that!

I fought the same CEL codes and suggestions from a dealer mechanic for about two years. Ditched the K&N filter, cleaned the MAF regularly, reset the PCM. I finally took the plunge a few months ago. I got an '02 GT MAF setup and SCT tune from Lonnie. I should have done it years ago.
