P0171 Code

Recently my GTI MKV has been throwing P0171.. I've cleared it several times and still reporting the code within a day or 2 ( although it recently too a week break and went away by itself) I looked it up and it says system too lean. Googling that mentions symptoms like rough idle , knocking and reduced power, none of which I'm experiencing. Can anyone suggest diagnostic steps at this point ?

AS a start you may want to take a look at the vacuum pump and brake booster hoses and the connector piece at the distribution pipe at driver side cylinder head. They are made of plastic and will crack split and cause intake leak.

So I checked the hoses they all look fine. Any other suggestions ?
