2009 Mazda 3 Mazdaspeed 2.3L Excessive Emissions, Poor Fuel Economy, MIL Lamp on
After 2 weeks the customer reports the egine light has not come back on after changing the a/f sensor. I do believe it will relight as long term fuel trims were hovering around -10 when it left. Trouble codes: P2188.
1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS 2.4L Poor Idle Quality, Cuts out, Stall VIN: 4A3AX35G3W

2004 Nissan Maxima SL 3.5L Fault Mode VIN: 1N4BA41E44
