3 things: My check engine light is on. I failed my emissions test. My 2005 HCH stutters when I press the gas after putting it in drive or reverse. (btw, my car has 90,000 miles.)
I took it to my local Auto Zone to see what their computer had to say and they said i have a bad catalytic converter and O2 sensor. They were very vague so i took it to a reputable local mechanic and he tells me that there's nothing wrong with my converter but that 3 of my O2 sensors are out and that it would cost around $1500 to fix. Mostly due to the fact that each sensor cost around $300-$400. Which they have to get from the Honda dealership.
so my question is how many sensors does a 2005 HCH have and is it normal for 3 of them to go out after 90,000 miles? Also, would this be the cause of the stuttering I'm experiencing? AND is this a reasonable price for the repairs?
any other info you have would be greatly appreciated.
thanks a bunch.
