My 2004 Jetta keeps giving a P1176 code. My mechanic can't seem to figure out what to look for as a cause. After the code is reset, it takes about 70 miles for the check engine light to come on again. what should I be looking for?

This usually means the rear oxygen sensor has failed so I would start by replacing that with OEM or Bosch part.
