Question about Chevrolet Cruze
HI, I am having a malfunction in Cruze 2010 done 70,000 km,of the P2096 Post Catalyst Fuel System, as per the service center it requires replacement, the cost is too much to replace which I cannot afford, I would like to know the reason for the mal function and what is the solution for this apart from replacement
I would expect the reason for the error code is there is a build up of carbon etc on the sensor so is not transmitting the correct information , try using a fuel addative that covers the catalytic convertor as well as the engine/fuel system , take for a longish drive at a good steady speed so the engine gets to a high working temperature , you may have to repeat this to get a good result but much cheaper than replacing the part , if this clears the error code then i'd advise using an addative every 10k to keep things clean and working better , you should get a bit better fuel economy as well

This would refer to the "down stream" sensor, which would be past the catalytic convertor. You may also have an exhaust leak near the cat, contaminated fuel or maybe even low fuel pressure.

Here is more information about P2096
P2096-DOWN STREAM FUEL TRIM LEAN BANK 1
With the engine running in closed loop mode, the ambient/battery temperature above (-7°C) 20°F , altitude below 8500 ft and fuel level greater than 15%.
If the PCM multiplies short term compensation by long term adaptive and a certain percentage is exceeded for two trips, a freeze frame is stored, the MIL illuminates and a trouble code is stored. Two Trip Fault. Three good trips to turn off the MIL.
Here are some possible casuses:
Engine mechanical problem
02 signal circut
02 return circut
Good luck and hope this helps.

Are you the original buyer? If so I would have contacted nissan because most states have what is referred to as a lemon law. According to Statelawyers.com, Lemon Law refers to the statement from the government that was created to protect consumers from defects in automobile. An automobile that has manufacturing defect(s) or if it requires repeated repairs after purchase and if the automobile is under warranty period, such a vehicle is termed as a lemon.
A law was placed for the benefit of consumers to prevent them from a lemon vehicle. In a nut shell if any vehicle such as a car is under warranty period and is suffering from various defects that prevent a consumer to use the vehicle effectively then Lemon law act or the Magnuson Moss Act comes into force.
Lemon law can be enforced on any sort of vehicle like a car, truck, van, SUV, motorcycle, boat or computer, etc. If any of these consumer durables is found to be defective then the consumer is entitled for either money back, replacement or a cash settlement. The law can be consulted with a Lemon law attorney as various states have different lemon laws. Some states have a lemon law for only the automobiles but some also include other consumer durables like computers, etc.
A dealer or manufacturer should have made number of attempts to repair the vehicle before being declared as lemon. Usually three or more attempts in row over a short period of time are required for any vehicle to be termed as lemon. Lemon law is also applicable to vehicles which have been resold but are still under warranty and meet the mileage and time criteria. More often it is very difficult to persuade a manufacturer to accept a lemon vehicle. In such cases a lemon suit is often called for.
To ensure whether a vehicle is a lemon or not one should observe certain conditions of the vehicle before pursuing a lemon law suit. A vehicle should exhibit some serious defect or some abnormal condition. Such a condition should be covered by manufacturer's warranty. Number of attempts for repair should also be taken into account before preparing a lemon law suit. A written notice should have also been issued to the manufacturer prior to a lemon law suit.
A vehicle that has been bought back by the manufacturer from the customer is known as a Lemon Buy Back. Such lemon buy backs are often sold in auctions as used cars by the manufacturers.
The Lemon law enforced for protecting consumers from the lemon vehicles is Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. This lemon law states that any advertised guarantee should explicitly state relevant information about a warranty. This law ensures that any warranty for goods above $15 should be clearly expressed on the goods and should be clear and easy to understand. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty act enables a consumer to bring suit to any manufacturer, supplier, warrantor, or service contractor for any defective piece of good or services.
A lemon vehicle explicitly loses market value due to its manufacturing defect. Moreover, manufacturing defects may lead to several life threatening circumstances. It also substantially impedes a person's ability to control or operate a motor vehicle for ordinary use or intended purposes. Any manufacturing defect can also create a substantial risk of fire or explosion. All these risk elements call for enforcement of Lemon law in the states of United States. This law helps consumer from all such threats and hazardous circumstances.
