My check egine light is back on only two days after a tune up correcting missfire i dont have the funds to replace either catalytic converter or O2 sensor at this time but this is what the code is fuel too rich watever that means.
Check engine light is on, code is reading O2 sensor
catalytic converter insufficient flow cause CEL on
the engine light is on and i cant drive the car cause it will cut off and oil is leaking
Have been told that it is the O2 sensor. I have had them replaced and the CEL is back after 10k miles.
CEL on. Checked OBDCOM--diagnoses was improper Catalytic converter air mixture coming from back O2 Sensors. Will replace catalytic converters and O2 sensors.
Car looses power, then surges all of a sudden, then act like it wants to shut off. Fumes coming into drivers area bad enough to burn mu eyes.
vacuum leak code (p4117)
check ingine light car seems to slow down and pick up at times
Have this problem as well, need to assemble funds to fix it.
