2003 Ford Escape 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 58,000 miles
i am a avid jeep enthusiast and do all my own mechanic work on everything, anyway my aunt asked me to change her oil pan gasket on her ford escape, it was leaking at only 50k miles, the dealer wanted alot of money, so I said yes. Boy do I regret it. Its been nothing but a pain, removing the exhaust anyway, the gasket was a breeze. The job is done everything is good, so when I give her car back I told her, the air filter was really dirty, you should buy a new one, go to autozone, they might even put it in for you, so she did and they did put it in for her. One her way home the CEL came on, she called me and I told her to go back to autozone to get it diagnosed, came back as a o2 sensor error, I had her reset it, and it came back next day. Now my"NOT blood" uncle is yelling and screaming at her, saying she should have gone to the dealer. I feel terrible, but all I did was unplug the dam sensor and plug it back in, it disconnected easily and everything.
not disconnecting the battery (didn't really think it was necessary for the gasket change)
the kid at autozone installing air filter (i checked everything, MAS is connected, filter is in correctly and it all looks fine)
any help would be appreciated, I am going to disconnect battery tomorrow and also check for a vacuum leak.
have the same problem?
