2005 dodge grand caravan...engine light on and off, went to autozone diagnostic. replaced upstream 02, last year replaced downstream...engine light came back on. need help!


When "check engine" litgh tun on, the PCM (computer) is warning that some fault code is stored there. Autozone could scanned your PCM and show exactly what fault codes is there; if your O2 sensors was replaced, I assuming that they can see this codes... so, they reset and delete all codes stored there? Scanned the PCM after this change?

1996 dodge dakota black smoke, engine running horrible getting P0171 code?


It sounds like your engine is running very rich yet the computer thinks it's lean. P0171 is a lean code for bank 1 (the side of the engine with cylinder #1) Pretty much the only causes could be a large exhaust leak, bad o2 sensor or bad computer. Is the p0171 the only code?
