We did that this afternoon.....it's the P0420.... Speaking of.....tonite driving home the Check Engine light came on.
sigh. I don't know what to do next.... .
Go to an Auto store, they will read your codes for free, then report here as to what codes you get.
That's what we did.....read lots of threads about it, which kinda added to the confusion because there is SO much........P0420 are the bain of the auto world. Most of the times it goes back to a bad front O2 sensor.
Do a search for P0420 and read the threads. Do the simple stuff first (cleaning or replacing pcv,making sure there are no exhaust leaks before the sensor, etc). If you have to replace the O2 get a direct fit from one of the three best mfgs ( Bosch, Denso and NGK ).
