Answer 2
First verify secondary ignition by checking for spark. Then compare values to fuel pressure specifications. If neither diagnostic procedures make a difference, focus on catalytic converter efficiency. Fuel is the enemy of the catalytic converter, if it had been running rich until the O2 sensor was replaced, the cat. may be damaged impairing fuel control and/or loss of catalytic converter efficiency. A restricted exhaust may also need to be diagnosed. -
