Last month -- my check engine light came on -- the code was "llamda sensor" (o2
sensor) -- so we replaced it.
It seemed ok -- but then i t came back
Here's when it comes on:
If I start the car & let it idle -- it will come on & cycle on and off -- with
if I touch the throttle - it goes off right away; by "touch" I mean give the
engine some gas, but not much; barely enough to change the tach.
if I leave it alone; it will go off on it's own; but then go back on.
Driving it never comes on.
Some suggested that it's in need of a valve adjustment (the knew we replaced the
headgasket 4 months ago and didn't re-adjust the valves afterwards -- we
couldn't see a reason to...)
What could be causing the CEL to come on at idle? The only code the reader is
pulling is the o2 sensor.
Typically the idle gets rough right before it goes on.
