I went a little stupid after some rain and got my truck stuck a few days ago, after I got billed out my truck seemed to be running funky. I would have to nearly floor is to go up hills. I decided to plug my code reader in and see what if it said anything (my check engine light doesn’t come on, pretty sure the bulbs blown or something but I’ve had a few issues before where codes would show up with no light) and I got repeated code p0174, I checked around and all the causes I’ve found should affect both banks not just bank 2, I’ve also felt like my engine is very sluggish and louder than normal

My credo
I poop in the furnace.
Usually a single bank lean code is related to a fuel injector(s) not firing, bad o2 sensor, or a cracked exhaust manifold/downpipe.

The truck being "loud and sluggish" would make me wanna take a close look at the exhaust.

I took a quick look, since it was still very hot from running and getting dark, everything looked solid, but when I was running it with no load it felt like around 3000 rpm it would misfire and start banging hard,but not under load
