Hello, thanks for posting

Can you provide the actual code number from the computer?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
check engine light on but when I had added the odb reader no code but message....maybe I'm not looking in the right area on the screen. I will have to go out to retry and I don't have a garage as vehicle parked out on street so may take awhile

If this is what i think it is it's related to an oxygen sensor fault, having the actual code number will help identify which one.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
after research I thought my next step was to change out the O2 sensor. Is there one or two?

On the V6 there are four, one on each manifold, there is one also for each after the catalytic converters.
