okay so i have a 2000 taco 2.7 from the states somewhere ( i live in nova scotia canada) 5 speed, regular cab short box yata yata yata
for the last couple months i have had a check engine code on my truck i havnt been driving it so it hasnt bothered me. but now im gearing it up for a trip with my 4 wheeler and trying to get this thing figured out
it was saying "coolant temp insufficiant". so i did some reading and at first thought of coolant temp sensor or thermostat. came to find out that apparently its comon with these trucks and you need to replace the front o2 sensor before the cat.
so today i took on that battle with the rotted bolts and so on and got it all changed for a new one from NTK. cleared the code and took it for a quick trip down the road. everything seemed to be working great.
tonight i took my gf home for a longer drive to double check everything and the engine light came back on. luckaly i had my code reader with me and pluged it in.
now its saying system to lean ( bank 1 )
im assuming this is the sensor i just replaced. you can smell it not running right and it doesnt work very good. scared to ruin something if i drive it so i parked it asap
what the heck is going on!! please help need this for my trip this week end.
