Customer Question
The pre catalyst oxygen...

The pre catalyst oxygen sensor"s accumulated voltage during a predetermined samping period was consistent y higher that the maximum acceptable value.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you located all of the vehicle's oxygen sensors? Are the wires leading to and from each intact and in good shape?

I am a little confused about this I don't know cars. Widow with a Terrain 2012.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Terrain yourself? What have you tried so far?

I took it to. Auto Zone. Who tested it out to see why check engine light is on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I need to have it inspected before the first of January!

Ok thanks , so either the oxygen sensor is faulty or you have a intake leak or exhaust leak. What kind of info were you looking to get from us today?

Do you know the cost for repairs for either?
GMC Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

depending on when your car was built it may still be under the emissions warranty. I would contact the dealer and have them check your car out before you expire on time or miles.

hopefully it is still covered if not it can be about 400 $ repair for the sensor.
