P0171 system too lean bank 1

I got this truck like a month ago. After I got it the evap code was on I took it in to the shop it was replaced but it wasn't plugged in so they hooked it up for me its still got a hard start. It takes 3 turns to get it to fire. I've replaced the fuel pressure regulator and plugs and wires and nothin. So now I got p0171 system too lean bank 1. I've clean the maf sensor and 3I days later it came back on

Anyone have this problem?

it might need a new sensor also you want to really look at the manifold if its cracked anywhere it will throw this code all day if its not really effecting anything you might also look at the 02 sensor it could just be going out

debo Welcome to the forum...

What year and engine do you have?
It might be worth checking the fuel pressure as well.... and as nkh34 suggested check for any vacuum leaks...
