Default CEL came on today.

Well..... the CEL came on this evening while my wife was driving around. I have noticed that the exhaust seems to smell real rich so I'm thinking either the MAF or oxygen sensors.

Will update when I get the info from autozone.

Had code P0171... needz O2 sensors. I can't say I was suprised. The exhaust has been smelling super rich for a while now.

Front sensor is $45 and the rear is $110. Even after factoring in the ~$13 for a 12 pack of Coors Light, its not too bad of a repair!

Are the sensors pretty easy to get to?

I think so.... if not, its not hard to drop the exhaust totally.

my CEL came today to. scanned with my Bluetooth dongle the code, and it was P0128. coolant temperature below normal. i think the thermostat is malfunctioning or the coolant sensor.

Very cool. At this point you would think a direct replacement would do the trick.
