Well the shop can use a 5 gas tester on it and get your levels in spec without having to drive it

Is that expensive?

SNAPONTECH :

Shouldnt be they will diagnose it with the gas reader then will be able to know whats causing the wrong levels

SNAPONTECH :

Could be a bad O2 sensor

I should have added, the day of the test, I had to get a jump start because the car had been sitting awhile.
