Customer:

Also, This car is being driven on very short trips daily. 2-3 miles once or twice a day. could that be a factor? could it be a cause of failure? Would some freeway travel time clean it out?

Tracer :

how many miles on it now

Customer:

65,000

Tracer :

close but o2 sensors begin acting up closer to 90k -100k in most cases. some fail earlier. very possible you had intermittant and the code is now set. cant say whether a good hard drive and blowout will do it but.. you brief drives do not allow time for the sensor heaters to fully warm that help clean them so.. yes, very possible a few good drives will clean. This code will not leave you stranded. may drop gas mileage slightly is about all

Customer:


Thank you very much. That is very helpful info
