the fuel injectors?

1 Answer

more possible that it is sending unit(fuel pump)if you start car can you listen under fuel tank for a whining noise?other thing try cleaning maf sensor located just engine side of your air cleaner..make sure no debries or dirt made it passed air cleaner.. a oxy sensor light can be alot of things but theyre design is to check out going mix of air fuel exhaust etc..seen them go on for a number of things ..
