My gas mileage is still pretty good... My check engine light has not come on eitherOriginally posted by gary680:
another problem could be your oxygen sensors. last week my car basically died on me and when it would run, the smell of gas was so bad that my eyes would burn got it fixed at pepboys though, they said it was both of my o2 sensors. got the car back tonight and it runs great without the smell. also, are you getting bad gas mileage??
Ha Ha. My check engine light comes on briefly when I start the car. Has anyone changed the O2 sensors themselves? I've seen a tool for it but I wonder how difficult it would actually be...Originally posted by Valhalla 21340:
did you check the check engine light check light? maybe the light burned out!
Yeah, the parts aren't cheap - Autozone pricing before CAT $34.99 after CAT $64.99 - I definantly don't want to pay for labor if I can help it!Originally posted by Valhalla 21340:
depends if theyre all rusted in place or not...and there are 4 of em, i believe...two on the manifold before cats, two after. and i believe also that its an expensive part either way...thats the only reason i havent gotten to mine, very little $$$ right now...(just bought another guitar, set me back a good amount, but it was worth it!!!!)
Is that something I can just pick up at the auto parts store? Is is a gas additive or does it go in the engine? Thanks.Originally posted by Dr. Mogie:
I found the smell went away after using Run-Rite, which cleans all the crap out of the motor and exhaust system. Performance was significantly improved after the treatment.
