    Hey guys...my check engine light has been on so I went ahead and replaced the fuel cap. After a day or so the check engine light went off and then when I drove it for awhile it came back on. Its been like this for the last week just going off and coming back on. Anyone have this happen to them? What was the problem?

    Thx!

    You need to get the code read. It could be a number of things.

    Mine is currently doing that, it is throwing the bank 1 sensor 1 o2 code. I think it is a bad connection, or just stalling on going bad.

    Gotta get it checked...if you need an o2 sensor I have a new one for sale.

    That light bugs so much...I feel your pain. Best of luck.

    How much? And would it happen to be for a 1st gen bank 1 sensor 1 for a manual with the V6?
