Customer Question

I recently replaced my o2 sensor in my 2005 Pontiac grand prix and the code still pops up after installation and reset, as well as power loss
JA: My old Jeep sounds like a steam radiator sometimes. It must be old age. The Pontiac Mechanic will know what your noise means and what to do about it. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: cant pass smog engine light keeps coming back with the same code
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Customer: replacing the o2 sensor and clearing code with code reader

JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Pontiac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
