Default Re: 98 with po174 code

i doubt the exhaust leak just before the muffler is causing that code. when you scaned the computer did it have more than one code? if so always fix the first one then clear it and see if the light comes on again. i think that po174 is a lean code bank 2. usually its a bad o2 sensor
