Normally the wiring harness is an issue, if you remove, clean and reconnect the plug on the throttle potentiometer and clear the codes does it disappear for a while?

Hi. I think your 171 code is to do with your MAF or vacuum leak. Check all your hoses (non coolant) for splits and cracks.
You did not describe what problems you were having. Jim
