The wiring is fine for both the O2 Sensor connections. I've been reading up on the leaky injector possibility and am planning on going out there here shortly and taking all 3 plugs out to check for wetness/gas smell. Now do I only need to check the plugs for Bank 1 side of the engine cause the CEL came back on again last night. As for the stripping of Bank 1 though for the O2 Sensor going into the manifold, I assume I have no choice but to actually get another Passenger Side Exhaust Manifold? Could it be the Cats too seeing I have the 2 upfront by the engine and the 3rd below the car? For being a cop car it's been taken care of and I am sure it's nothing major I just wanted to see if anyone could give me ideas before I take it in and have to pay to diagnose and pinpoint the problem. O'reilly Auto told me it could be my timing belt stretched and bunch of other things. Pretty sure they're just trying to make a buck by putting a scare into me when I highly doubt it's the timing. Thanks again for any advice. I've owned a 1998 Dodge Intrepid with the 3.2 and a 2000 Chrysler 300M and also a 1999 Chrysler LHS. So I am very familiar with these engines, just this little issue is quite puzzling to me.
Thanks again for any insight...
