Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Do you happen to have the actual "p-code" associated with this? (Usually just to the left of the description)
Is this the 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder engine?
Ok. This code is pointing to a problem with the "downstream" Oxygen Sensor. This can be an internal problem with the sensor or a problem in the wiring to the sensor. This sensor is located under the vehicle, mounted to the exhaust pipe. Carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, the sensor will need to be replaced. With only 14,000 miles on the vehicle, this sensor really shouldn't need to be replaced yet. Very well could be a defective sensor if the wiring checks ok. I'd recommend checking with your warranty as this very well should be covered!
