It's running super lean. Don't drive it like that


We can't figure out why it's running lean

Andrew Olsen

Which motor are we dealing with?


Chevy 2.5

Andrew Olsen

It's either vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure, fuel injector issue, o2 sensor or the pcm is going out


We have tested all of those and everything came up normal

Andrew Olsen

What was the o2 reading? Or did you just replace it?


It was reading .05 so we replaced

Andrew Olsen

.05 means it's reading super lean so it was probably correct. What's your fuel pressure at?
