I know you don't have codes for it, but test the downstream (rear) o2 sensor and all the wiring associated with it. you could also have a damaged exhaust somewhere. cracks in the exhaust can do weird things.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

just repalce the o2 sensor thats why its getting the code 90 percent of the time its the sensor
