I took it to an independant and they charged 172 US to get codes with a
scanner. Here is what they note:
#P0132 Oxygen Sensor voltage not to lean. Tested Sensors, they tested slow.
Also show codes:
#96 Starter lock out
#128 front left wheel speed sensor
#224 Idle speed contact switch
The check Engine light is now off and has not come back on. Should I replace
Oxygon sensors so it will pass emmissions test in CA? I notice I can buy Ox
Sensors with connectors already on. Would these be best? Is all of this
fixable by a home mechanic?
I don't recognize the three non-O2 sensor codes. I assume they are not
the standard OBD II. As to O2 sensor, they are easy to change as long
as you can get a hold of them. They are usually in tight locations that
the normal open end wrench (22mm) cannot reach, therefore, you need
special tool, either a deep socket with open slot, or a crowfoot. I
prefer crowfoot. Also, buy the sensors that fit exactly your car.
There are universal ones that you can easily connect to the OE wires,
but I don't like the feeling to have the connection box (about the size
of thump) so close to exhaust.
