hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you. please allow me a couple of minutes to gather some basic info.Roy
ok, looked up the code and it is for the air fuel ratio sensor. I attached a list of possibilities for this code for you.
when you replace it and clear the code, it takes that long for the code to set as the pcm does its self check and it takes that long before it will set the light. there is mot likely nothing wrong with the sensor. check all items on the list and then we can talk some more.
no, in your model it is called an air fuel ratio sensor. they look the same but do the same job.
just because the code was for the sensor, does not mean it is bad. codes never identify bad parts just failed systems. your tech should know this
you need to check all possibilities
it took that long for the pcm to see the fault. it is a 3 trip failure before it sets the code.
sorry you do not believe me. if you understood the system better you would understand.
