Sudden loss of fuel economy on 2002 Chrys-Sebring. Burns 2-3 times as much gas as it did last month. No gas fumes or idol change. Just sucking gas & ONLY cold air works on High Heat Fan Setting.


Is the check engine light on ? If it is too much a rich code would turn on the check engine light . P0172 & P0175 https://www.obd-codes.com/p0172 https://www.obd-codes.com/p0175
could have a dirty mass air flow sensor ,or volume air flow sensor ,or the MAP sensor . manifold pressure sensor . Or a O2 sensor problem . Taking the vehicle and having it diagnosed would be your best solution , rather then just replacing parts that do fix the problem .

How to diagnose and replace o2 sensors on a 1998 Lincoln Town Car


Well the O2 sensors would not make any noise you could hear inside the car.
And if one of the sensors fails, you should get a check engine light.

Check engine light is on and the car runs rough at idle only. There is also a burning smell when I exit the car coming from under the hood. What could be the issues?


have a parts store pull code, to see what sensors r at fault, tps throttle position sensor may need adjust, oxygen sensor needs replaced, may have two ? both need replaced. gas cap might b faulty ? in any event, the trouble code must b cleared out from computer, after repaired is made. if engine light comes back on, reclear it. sometimes intermittant sensor problems occur, engine light comes back on. well, the gas we buy with ethanol is killing our engines, put some fuel stabilizer in @ next fuel up. but try some fuel injector cleaner first, winter gums up injectors, soooo ! fuel filter replacement is always in need, people don\'t get it, replace all filters, air, fuel, oil, get it ? maintenance is a necessary evil. u change yur clothes ever day, right ? well, same thing., good luck, ken

Service engine light


service engine light on Nissan will not damage the car in any manner, however you gas mileage may change slightly. Service engine light can be numerous of issue. Fist I would change the Co2 sensor, 99% that will be the main issue, most people don't realize that unit need to be replace every 50-75k miles. if that does not solve the issue than take it to the dealership and have them plug it into their computer and it will spit out a code so mechanic can narrow drown on what need replacing. Running bad gas or running low octane can also cause the light to come on. Before you change Co2 sensor, go to Mobile, Shells, Speedway, gas stations and put in 93 or highest octane gas and go to Automotive store and pick up a STP fuel injectors cleaner, mix it with full tank of gas and run it til next refill and see if that light goes off, if not than change Co2 sensor. I believe that truck has 2 sensor if it a V6. the sensor located on the exhaust pipe before catalyst converter. its easy to fix and replace if you have the tools. if you don't know where the sensor looks like or located on the car, just get the new parts and look compare the old to the new. they run somewhere around 35-40 bucks each. Co2 sensor measure amount of burned gas telling the computer if its running rich or lean, if the sensor goes bad the computer get trip and the light comes on. good luck!!

O2 sensor engine light stays on, smell gas in kia as it warms up on cold days


o2 sensor is probably bad and so the car is unable to make proper adjustments to the air/fuel ratio. What you likely smell is your car running rich, meaning there is too much gas for the amount of air the engine is taking it resulting in gas that is getting burned completely and is going out through the exhaust. Is probably going to decrease your gas mileage. You should probably get the o2 sensor checked out.
