Question Asked: I can't get the readiness code for the catalyst sensor to clear-no trouble codes
June 07, 2013, 12:16 PM
Also the readiness codes for the oxygen sensors will not clear or complete. There are no trouble codes showing. Any suggestions, I need to get one more to clear before I can get it inspected. It will pass inspection with only two readiness codes not clear.

I have checked all fuses and replaced both sensors that are next to each other and the sensor plugs look to be fine and the trouble code is still showing up. Code P0113

I had a dodge neon that did the same thing - on a dry day I took the rear seat out and got in the car and had my wife spray the car doors and trunk with water hose until I found the leak - mine ended up being the gaskets around the taillights and the water was collecting in the trunk under the spare tire and when I would put on brakes the water would slosh forward in the back floorboard underneath the rear seat - it was a mystery until I took seat out and did that

could have a bad switch or bad fuse, if keyless entry is working may not be a fuse though - check wires to switch, if they are ok you may have to replace the switch assy - for best price 98% of the time

there should be a ABS sensor on the rear axle that screws with a wire running to it. Unscrew the sensor and clean it, should have a magnet on the end on sensor, if it gets dirty it makes the ABS light come on. If cleaning it does not work replace it. The sensor is not that expensive and would be my first try.

Try changeing the plugs with correct gap setting, wires and then try it. If no luck replace coil pack(s) and misfire can make O2 sensors read bad but are actually not, this is because it is downstream from the engine and it expects the plugs to be working correctly. (Work your way from top to bottom)

may need to change the coil pack out with new one - and make sure plugs have correct gap setting on them - a transmission has nothing to do with a engine misfiring, whole different ballgame - hope this helps

Question Answered: What cause a knocking noise 5 to 10 minutes after first start in the morning?
May 30, 2013, 11:18 AM
This is common for most engines when first started after sitting for a period of time. When a engine sits not running the oil drains back down to the bottom. When it is started the engine takes a second to pump the oil from the bottom back through the lifters in the top off the engine block creating a ticking or knocking sound. Adding a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil helps with this issue, find it at auto parts stores anywhere.

That is a simple fix, it is just the exhaust pipe. Take it to a muffler shop and have them fix or replace it. Should cost you $100 or less to repair.

You need to get the firing order to pin point the issue to a certain plug, but good rule of thumb is change the wires when you change the plugs. If this doesnt work change the coil.
