Customer Question

Customer: Hi Billy, my name is***** have a Zafira Life 1600, 07. Had fault codes 0141 and 0201,2,3,4 . Did some research and found out that these were related to oxygen sensors and ignition ie.,plugs coil pack and injectors. I changed the plugs,which were worn,coil pack and lambda sensor number 2. It was suggested that I use a cat cleaner product to clean out the system. after all this the fault codes were still there. My local mechanic said that I needed to get the codes cancelled and he knew a guy who could do it for a tenner,which I did and for sure the

As I was saying, the engine management light went off but after a while returned with only code 0141. Now all the experts say that if the light comes on again then there is a problem. So code 0141 refers to the oxygen sensors,what do you think the problem could be as I have changed the number 2 sensor?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My issues here are that the engine management light is on, I dont have any other problems as the car still runs well with plenty of power. My MOT is end of Jan.2016.

the oxygen sensor to replace with this code is the no.1 sensor thats closest to the engine

the no.2 sensor after the cat is for monitoring usee only

was the cat cleaner product ' cataclean'? as this is a good product and will help if the cat was clogged
