have you recently had an oil change?I have a 2007 SX4, I just hit 37,000 miles and my little engine light came on yesterday. I went to Auto Zone and they said the code was P2A01. He said I need to replace my O2 sensor. Is the correct, or could I have just put some bad gas in my car?
If it happens right after the oil change this is the cause most likely. The sensor isn't damaged - normally once the code is cleared it won't come back until next oil change.Thanks for the information, yes, I did just get my oil changed. I had it done when I purchased new tires. (which was not at a dealership) I will have my husband check it tonight, I was going to have him check for a loose sensor wire, I will add this too.
2007 was the only year the had the o2 sensor directly under the oil filter.Both the oil filler cap and filter are on the opposite side of the engine. Only the worse mechanic in the world, would ever slop oil on that sensor.
I can't even imagine how that would ever happen.
Even I'm not that big of a Klutz.
UNless I did not see it, I do not have a power steering light....is yours an electric power steering? WHere do you live ? In america we have hydraulic power steering contrary to what we see in the service manuals........ The dashboard shows the engine immobilizer and power steering light ....
