As with any car run the car for about 1/2 an hour,or until it is hot.Feel your top radiator hose, if it is hard and you cannot flex it. That is telling you your thermostat is stuck in the closed position and your antifreeze, is not circulating,which would explain your cold air. I hope this helped.

the normal prob is caused by the wiring around rh trunk hinge broken removing supply to release motor. you have a manual key slot in rh of trunk lid think its in either of the trunk badges or the plinth this siezes up because everyone uses the remote or dash switch but when the wiring fails you cant use the key slot try spraying plenty of relase fluid in the slot say wd40 and gently keep trying to free it off that has allways worked for me when you get in remove the plastic rh trunk hinge cover and repair fractured wiring good luck

Attach battery power to the alternator output wire under the hood and open the trunk as you normally would as now you should have power for the trunk opener.DO NOT try to start the car using this method.

Many o2 sensors have gone bad but 50% of the time when a code is set on a car about an o2 sensor there is another cause which is changing the emissions & setting the o2 code (ex. vacuum leak, bad plug, injector, it could very well be the cat etc.) The root cause of the problem must be found NOT JUST READING CODES! TAKE YOUR CAR ELSWHERE.
