Welcome to the forum


I moved your thread to the Technical Chat are you'll get much better help for your problem here than you would in the General car chat area.



Now for your problem, like jdmzx5 is asking is it the sensor your asking about and what was the exact code?

NEVER let anyone at a parts store tell you WHAT PART TO BUY. If they read codes you are absolutely and totally screwing yourself by not recording those exact code numbers YOURSELF. Then come home and research on the web for what the problem might be. If not then shut up with the b-tching when they sell you the highest priced part and it still doesn't work.

Of course, listen to what they say, but with a grain of salt. ESPECIALLY at O'Reilly's, they pay their people extra incentives to sell parts not needed. Indeed they push quite hard for it. It's called 'taking care of the customer'.

When they say ASE on the front door that does NOT mean a mechanic, rather a parts person, who is not qualified to be a mechanic. Oh, you didn't know that? More subliminal messaging to convince you they know what they are doing. The majority I met there could change a spark plug properly, much less diagnose correctly.
