First replace the fuel filter, then run a fuel system pressure test, if the pressure tests good then clear the codes and verify they cleared, then road test, if the check engine light comes back on with the same codes you may have partially plugged injectors or you still have an internal vacuum leak. Coolant smell from the heater is almost always a leaking heater core, on this rig it is not cheap to replace, the part price is not bad but the labor is the killer.

PO171 And PO174 means it's running lean. This means your manifold air pressure sensor is saying X amount of air entering motor yet your O2 sensor is saying XY amount of air is exiting engine. The computer reads this as extra air is getting in somewhere. This is usually a vacuum leak from your PCV vacuum lines. Start your engine, let it idle. Spray starting fluid around your PCV valve and all vacuum lines connected to it. You should hear you idle pick up. Then trace those lines with your finger and you will find a hole that rotted through. go to the following links for more help and videos. https://www.facebook.com/martin.kamenar.92 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaynnTca3tw&feature=youtu.be
