'98 C230 Code help pls.. I'm getting a P170 code when......

I had my C230 hooked up to the code analyzer. Said something about the fuel compensation valve in Bank 1 not working properly. Is this serious? I have 59,550 miles on this car and have not had any major problems until the check engine light just came on. So, I am asking one of the kind people out there if you can help me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Sounds like an Air Mass Meter.

Easy job DIY. You should confirm it's failure prior to purchase, as it's not a cheap part.

Did the code say something about "fuel trim self-adaptation at limit"? "Bank one" is the only bank on a C230, it's an inline 4, there is no bank two.
