Last winter I bought a 06 Reno for my high school daughter to get around this school year. Engine light came on two weeks later.
1. It coded oxygen sensor. After changing that (Feb '13), it coded again. Ignored it, seemed to run rich, sometimes reved when it shouldn't. Once it stopped accelerating while being driven.
2. Had the catalytic converter ($200, ebay part) and oxygen sensor done April '13. And it coded a week later. Started revving sometimes again, sometimes acting like it wasn't getting enough gas and every so often needing to pull over and turn it off because it stopped accelerating while being driven - I'd press the gas and it would not respond at all. But most of the time it ran, even if it was running rich and louder.
3. Found a different mechanic. Changed the converter ($350, mechanic swears by this company's converters) and sensor ($200) again, Dec '13. One week later, warm day (Georgia) - engine light goes on, then it stops accelerating while being driven. Pull over, turn it off, wait a min, turn it back on, it goes. Today my daughter was having to pull over every two miles to turn it off and wait. She got it to our tire guy and it's coding oxygen sensor again!
How many oxygen sensors does this thing really have? (2006 Suzuki Reno Parts - Suzuki Car Parts Catalog Online Store
Should the code say which oxygen sensor, or should both (or all four?) sensors be changed at the same time?
Is something else burning out the sensor(s) and converter?
I've seen other examples similar on the net (Clo Overcast's Garage | Recent Activity - CarGurus
) but no one reports back what they discover the problem to be - unless they are like me and can't get the problem to fix?
Ideas, help? Thank you!
