Cats
« on: 10 January 2018, 15:04:41 »

My engine warning light came up and my code reader said the it was an imbalance on the O2 sensors indication cats not working. Poured cataclean in a quarter of a tank and it was ok for a few weeks but has come up again. Is there anything else that can clean the cats or are they needing replacing? Thanks.

It's the pre-cats failing, the solution is to move the o2 sensors to post main cat instead of after the pre-cat  :y

This^. They all suffer from it when they get to a certain age. Ive removed the bulb at the moment, but may get around to moving the sensors in the future.
