I really appreciate you taking the time to reply.
This problem is very weird because some days the light comes on and some days it doesn't. For example today it didn't come on at all and I drive at least four hours to and from work (2 hrs both way).
My question is; would the o2 sensor react this way or would the engine light be on constantly. My warranty finished at 60 000 km and I think this car carries 4 o2 sensors and it's so hard to find parts in Toronto for these cars.
ps* Can anyone PLEASE PLEASE direct me to a company that has a service manual for this car. No where in Toronto has it and I'd be willing to order online if that's it's elsewhere.
By service manual I mean along the line of a haynes manual. I already called haynes, checked out autobish and auto literature and got nothing.
Also if anyone can include a diagram of the location. The reason I ask is I see two "down pipes" from the engine and each one has an 02 sensor. I think these are before the cat. converter but not too sure.
if you guys need any other info please ask and I'll try my best to find it out.
