You could lose fuel miliage for one, if it is causing a rich condition. That would also add to the chance of fuel getting into the oil or starting to damage the converter. It could cause a lean conditon as well that could lead to pinging and possible head gasket failure. Hard to say how quick or how bad. Costs can be all over the board. Usually it isn't a big job.
Had this problem on my son's '97 GMC 350, before and after an engine overhaul. (overhaul was not result of oxy sensor failure)
It has four sensors on a "dual exhaust" system. Advance auto parts read the codes and identified the culprit for free, although they warned that the possibility of a malfunctioning converter was NOT ruled out! Resetting the code put the light out...for a few days. The first sensor was replaced during over haul. Two weeks later the light was coming on again and it took some careful interpretation to notice it was the rear sensor on the OTHER bank. The first sensor was OEM @ $75, the second was Adv @ $50.
My 18 yr. old son lives out of state (NM) and I (in Ark)wanted to the on board diagnostics to be remain functional for his "first" vehicle. That was a year ago and all is working well.
engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty.
No it dosent but fix it ir replace because the air and fuel ration is the key to cumbustion and a faulty turbo is less air/oxygen to the fuel which means your engine wont properly burn the fuel which means you can mess up your engine bad
Yes. Replace the cap. Why have your car sitting beside the road because you did not put the gas cap back on when you filled up?
No an overheating engine will be due to leaking coolant, a faulty radiator, a faulty water pump, lack of oil or oil that needs to be changed
That is most likely the Check Engine Light. In most usual cases, it's just a faulty sensor you need to replace. Any dealer of your brand of vehicle has code readers for these lights and could tell you what sensor is faulty. Beware, they can be costly though. Anything computer is. I believe you would not pass inspection if this was not fixed. Now if the Service Vehicle Soon light came on, stop driving it, you'd have a major issue that could kill the engine.
Either another perkins or a ford
Faulty ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor. Replace it.
because you have an engine misfire.most likely the DI cassette is faulty. (Ignition)
Replace the faulty speed sensor and the light will reset itself after a short drive.
An Audi engine typically stalls because it needs maintenance and repair. Sometimes, it is due to a faulty engine or simply because the car is put in a 'stop' position for too long.
Could be, worn bearing/seal in water pump, loose hose clamp, faulty hose, faulty radiator, faulty gaskets, faulty heater core, faulty freeze plugs in engine block, faulty radiator cap, cracked cylinder head,
either your plug or plug lead is faulty replace both
Faulty catalytic converter, or sensors in exhaust faulty
It might happen because of a faulty starter gasket.
No, only the faulty one, the fault code will tell you which is faulty.
A faulty head gasket will cause power loss, coolant to mix with oil, and is a costly repair. Excessive heat is the primary cause for their failure.
Sounds like you have a faulty thermostat. Its nothing expensive on hard to replace.
It could be a faulty gauge, a faulty sensor, or a wiring problem. What engine do you have in what year car?
I am dissatisfied with (product) which I purchased from you for (amount) on (date) at (location); see my enclosed receipt photocopy. The product is faulty because of (reason). Can you repair or replace it for me? Yours, (signature)
No, you cannot replace a faulty Ford Sport Trac cluster with a cluster from the 2005 Explorer.
A faulty muffler will not cause this but a clogged catalytic converter will.
loose water pump pulley and overheating engine
Could be because your engine if missfiring do to faulty spark plugs or the fuel injectors are dirty.Thats only a few things that might be wrong!
OnV6 4.3 with 4L60E transmission will faulty shift solenoid cause not to shift into high gear?
Not sure if it applies to you.... The last 3 incidents I know of are basically faulty catalytic converters. Replace it.
