There are a lot of factors that may contribute to high fuel consumption. Does the engine run ok during normal operation? Rough idle? Check engine light on? Have the oxygen sensors scanned for operating information to determine if the fuel system is operating effeciently by a qualified service center. These sensors monitor the effeciency of the fuel system
1. replaced the air filter
2. replaced the PCV valve
3. inspected the PCV hose and connectors (nothing wrong)
4. ran a tank of gas with fuel injector cleaner
5. tested the EGR valve by pulling the vacuum hose off the top, and blocking the hose. The idle didn't smooth out. I applied a vacuum to the EGR valve manually and the car immediately stalled which tells me that the EGR valve itself is working fine.
Sorry guys i was late with my feedback... So here it goes.. I have no check engine light.... Currently running the stock tune as well.. The car has no tps, pcv or egr valve.. It is all controlled by the electronic throttle body which i recently cleaned but didnt help with my problem. I ordered a new fuel pump as well, just didnt get the chance to install it yet. Cant change the fuel filter as it is builtin within the pump. However, shouldnt the fuel pump or fuel filter cause engine stalling, bucking and hesitation? I doubted the fuel pump could be causing this since the problem only occurs at idle. By the way, there is no missing on any of the cylinders.
These codes, po 138 bank 1 sensor 2 shorted to voltage and code po158 means bank 2 sensor two shorted to voltage. these are the two rear oxygen sensors in the exhaust system. there two up frt and two in the rear, check the wiring on the two rear sensors, make sure that the wiring is not cut or stuck between metal. if the wiring is good then replace both rear sensors, when you get them ask for the left and right after the cat sensors. or bk1 s2 and bk2s2. after replacing them reset the computer. go to an auto parts sotre or if you have a code reader you can do it. hope this helps good day.
these O2 sensors are cat convertor check sensors. id be checking cat convertors and hopefully you should try replacing if not all ready is the front bank 2, O2 sensor
if you have scanner can you see fuel trims in data display to confirm high fuel trim only on bank 2 either +-5 or more indicates problem and if bank 2 sensor 2 has fixed high 700mv reading cat no good(warm idling)
