I did have a smoke test done but not by the dealer.

The smoke test I had done was from a local mechanic. I'm not saying they didnt do a thorough job, it might be that this developed after the fact. Either way the dealer should have picked this up!...

Never knew that you could cross the wires on the O2 sensors! Definitely worth a look. Also, the 4 cylinders closest to the firewall had oil in them. If it was progressive it was not obvious...well at...

Just thought about something!

If the wiring had a short then the problem would be sporatic or at the very least inconsistent. At this point everytime on startup and thereafter the P1074 & P1071 codes for Fuel Too Lean Bank 1 & 2...

H8 Bulbs are fog lights for late model 2000(2001 models) to 2003. I don't know if the 04 uses H8's but I tell you what they are a pain in the ass to find. If you find a dealer that has H8s buy a...
