    P0420

    Problem fixed! What I did was ordered a scan tool (for android device) from amazon for around $28.00 and then downloaded the turbo app for $4.95. Once the vehicle was warmed up and O2 sensors were in closed loop I noticed my LTFT’s on bank one was -3% and bank 2 was -6% (rich cond.). Upstream...

    Damn, wish I was there drinking with you all! Thanks nickb2 & Kev for sticking your neck out to show me this info. I'll try this out and report back as suggested. This will be a good solution for my off road Tundra farm use only vehicle :) Thanks!!

    P0420

    Ah thats what I'm looking for...Thanks! Yeah we don't have inspections here in FL so I don't have to worry about this part. And I totally AGREE with you on the emissions. I just wonder what one diesel truck is equivalent to in the smog world compared to how many of vehicles like mine? Or...

    Ok, 10-4 on the legalities. The O2 sensors are all fairly new. Whats the method of checking the fuel trims out? Thanks

    P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1. So with this code coming on intermittently, I thinking the catalytic is probably getting old and tired like me! Truck has 315K on it with regular maintenance including tune-ups. These are very expensive to replace so what if... Or...

    P00B7 Overheat Issue Chevy Sonic 1.8

    Thermostat was changed approximately one year ago. Should I be looking for a correlation signal between the radiator coolant temp sensor and the engine coolant temperature (ETC). Or is there a common issue with the thermostats? I do believe the water pump is working. About all I have is a...

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    Look what I found. Plug connector (High Pressure Switch) looked like it was fully engaged, but it is all broken up with plastic pieces. When I first checked this, I probed it with meter through the wire shield (trying to save some time) I didn't think about pulling the plug out until today...

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    After looking at the pdf Kev2 sent, I'm back to thinking the pcm is the issue. Both RAD fan relays are working. Temp switch is new so ect signal should be working. I jumped the low pressure and high pressure switches so the a/c switch sense should be reading closed loop. Only thing left is...

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    Pulled code P0480, I replaced the coolant sensor and now I'll see what happens. Update... Got power to both rad fan relays. Fan 1 will not come on, but relay is closed so the circuit should be energized. with the engine running, I pull rad fan relay #1 out and fan 2 will automatically come on...

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    No I haven't scanned for a code but I did see the check eng light was on, I'll do that next. I did think the fans should have come on a lot earlier but they never did. Yes, I meant relay switch under the hood in the box is the one I was referring to where I jumped. Also, I filled the system up...

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    Wow, this some good info! Thanks everyone!!! I jumped the solenoid and compressor kicked on and low pressure side was about 15psi, high side was around 150 so I'm going to add some Freon and check for leaks. When I first hooked the gauges up with ac off I had a reading of 115 on low side so I...

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    I haven't had much experience with ac so if this seems like a dumb question... Would the high-pressure switch be on the low side, downstream of the expansion/orifice? Or should I look around the condenser area and before expansion valve? Things sure are tightly packed in this car. lol. Thx

    A/C Electrical ? 2005 Dodge Neon2.0

    I'm trying to fix this car for a college kid and seemed to be stumped. A/C was working great then stopped at store got back in the car and it stopped working according to the owner. I checked all the fuses and solenoids including ones under the hood and all are good. I check the low pressure...
