Error code 2005 vw beetle -P2096


code p 2096 refers to post cat converter fuel trim(FT) bank 1 ---too lean===causes --cat converter---exhaust leak
it also refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1 bank 1--range/ performance --circuit high====causes --wiring short to positive ---HO2S
replace the HO2S using the correct socket so the wires do not get damaged
for the first one check for an exhaust leak in the flex section of the exhaust pipe under the steel mesh

P0420 code in a 2006 Suzuki verona Should I start by changing the downstream 02 sensor in the cat before considering a new cat? I have a leaking front flex pipe would that affect this?


Yes, the leaking flex pipe could cause this code. You need to fix that, clear the code and re test. BUT: This vehicle has had issues with the catalytic converters coming apart and ruining the engine. It can suck catalytic converter pieces into the engine. When the converter is removed, visually inspect for damage.

I have 2002 Camry Le 4 cy.I was told that I need replace front pipe assembly & gasket (flex-pipe leaking) they said it would coast around 900 just for the part because there is catalytic con. but they...


The broken flex pipe can easily be fixed with a generic flex pipe for less then $100.
The catalytic converter is after that, so has nothing at all to do with it.
But cracks can also brazed or welded to fix.
However, the reason flex pipes break is from excessive engine movement.
That almost always means a loose bushing on a motor mount.
So do that first.
Should be less then $50.
Never take a car to a dealer unless you absolutely have to.
They charge twice what it should cost, because they want to sell new cars, not fix older ones.

You never have to pay someone to work on your vehicles, if
you have the knowledge and tools

Why do so many people refer to mechanics as experts?
Your capable of learning what they know

There is always a work around, any issues
Look on NAPA etc for what is avail for your exhaust

Would you waste money for a converter, if only a flex
pipe was in need of replacement,common sense

The O2 sensor was changed last month. The check engine light returned. The dealer said there was a leak in the flex pipe. Recommend replace flex pipe. Did that. problem still exist. When driving the car...


Replacing an O2 sensor generally is "fixing the symptom" instead of fixing the cause. A good O2 sensor will often trigger a code if the exhaust mixture it is "seeing" is out of its range to adjust. If the pipe was bad when the sensor was changed, or if another part of the engine management system is out of range, it can cause the new sensor to fail or trigger the check engine light. In your case, I'd clear the codes and see if that helps. If not, you likely will need to do better diagnosis and perhaps again change the sensor if everything else checks out as good.
