Idle fixed & How DOES the 02 work?
Well, I finally fixed my idle/starting problem. Big crack in the
intake boot. 100 bucks and 1 hour later my car idles fine and starts
everytime no problem. NOW, here is the real question. I recently changed
my o2 sensor thinking my idle problem might go away and I would get
my great gas mileage back (it dropped to 22 on the hwy.) After I changed
it (still had the bad boot on) It slowly went up to 24.2 on the hwy.
Now, I then changed the boot and it has gone back down again. DOES that
thing need time to learn the correct fuel mixture. I am pretty sure
there is something that learns the O2 value and adjusts the fuel micture
better but not sure. Now that I have changed my boot, before hand, would
my car have been running rich or lean, and now does the O2 sensor have
to adjust it the other way? I don't really know what is gonna happen
but I hope I will get my gas mileage back up.
Thanks in advance.
