2000 Mitsubishi Galant 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 63000 miles
I received a service engine light and scanned an error code describing downstream o2 sensor on rear head. I disconnected the negative side of the battery has instructed in the manual and then proceeded to remove the 02 sensor on the muffler side of the catalytic converter. Not much room to work with but success.
I then proceeded to change the oil while I had the car jacked up along with the oil filter, no issues.
Then I reconnected the neg side of battery and started up the car. Car started up just fine and no more service engine light. I let it run for a few minutes to warm up and then turned the engine off.
I had the car parked near the garage door and needed to close the door. I jumped in the car and the car started up and then died. Subsequent startups are the same has long as the engine is warm. If I wait for about 20 minutes it will start up and run like normal until it gets warm again.
Also please note there is no service engine light at this time.
have the same problem?
