I have had my check engine light on for last month. The mechanic at the shop put the computer on it and it says bank 1 lean and mis fire on pistons or something like that? The car runs fine but ideals rough.

Vacuum leaks indicated by codes. Dealer and outside mechanics used vapor sniffers to locate a problem but found nothing. After doing my own research, I tried replacing the N80 valve and the problem was fixed. A symptom of a bad N80 valve is that when fueling up the car, the engine will hesitate when starting because of the vapor backup in the failed N80 valve. A replacement can be found for around $25 and installs fairly easy.

Check engine light on. Went to Auto Zone to get a reading and the codes read that it can be a faulty turbo, catalytic converter or an air leak.
The check engine light remains on. Replaced gas cap about 2 years ago. I have worn hose, that probably is leaking air. Not sure how to affect repair myself. The problem seems to be effecting my mileage performance now.

I bought the car used in 2007 and it's been on ever since. We changed the sensor and it's still on. the cluster also has a problem with displaying and we got a 'used' one and still have the same problem. The electrical system must be messed up as the car alarm would go off for no reason. It's ok now. The engine is terrific and handling is great, it loves the road even in 2014 with 144,000 mi on it.
