Engine Performance problem
2001 Mitsubishi Montero 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
The engine light in my Montero came on. Since it just hit 100,000 miles, I decided to have a 27 point inspection and some other things done, as well as have the engine light checked out at my local Mitsubishi dealer.
They told me I had a bad O2 Sensor and they did the 27 Point inspection which included an oil change. We picked up the car. When on the highway going about 60 miles an hour after about 60 miles of driving, the engine light came back on. We took it back, they told us the code revealed was one they never saw before. They cleared the code and gave it back to us. Less than 100 miles later, the engine light came back on. We took it back. This time they are telling me the O2 Sensor is bad again, but it was caused by an oil leak and the oil was running down the harness into the O2 Sensor causing it to go bad. My question is: Is this BS? Can an oil leak cause an O2 Sensor in a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero to go bad?
have the same problem?
