Hello, thanks for posting

Do you happen to have the actual diagnostic code numbers when the check engine light was on?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
could it be P0138 and P2195

give me a few moments to check on those.

mp thanks just wanted a second opinion

The code 2195 is for the #1 air/fuel ratio sensor on the engine bank one side (passenger side) on the V6. The sensor is stuck in the lean position, this is the sensor before the cat converter, I recommend that you replace this sensor first then clear the codes and see if the P0138 code comes back, this code is for the sensor behind the converter, since the sensor in front can affect the converter performance and the operation of the rear sensor it may not be necessary to replace both.
