I have a problem to solve. I have a Ford E-350 XLT 15 passenger van, Triton V-10.
They changed the smog rules in California and now you cannot clear the check engine light and pass the test. I have a trouble code throwing on one of my O2 sensors that has been around for years. Up to now not a problem. I replaced the sensor, but the light comes back on. I took it to some local smog shop who spent hours trying to figure out what was wrong but never did. They tried to ding me with $200 but I balked as the original estimate was $100 - even so a lot of money to toss for nothing in return. Ford dealership wants $130 up front for a diagnostic. The van passes emissions with flying colors, totally clean exhaust.
I just became aware of O2 Eliminators which should do the trick. Just send the right code back to EC and be done with it. Anyone have experience with these?
