Yesterday Penelope developed a rough idle while waiting at a light. Ran OK any other rpm or speed traveled. Happened several times then the dreaded "engine icon light" went on.

Headed to the dealer this a.m. Dealer tech put the diagnostic tester on it and found all four cylinders in the right bank had misfires. Cylinders number 1, 2, and 4 (forward to back) had misfires in the hundreds, while 3 had over 3400 misfires.

He thought the emission sensor was gone....again. Had it replaced about six months ago. Was about to replace the sensor when he noticed, on then opposite end of the sensor cable, the four pin connector end to the wiring harness was badly corroded. Actually looks like moisture has been building up over a long period of time, blocking out some signals sent to the emission sensor.

The tech replaced the corroded pins, sealed the back side of the pins, and taped over the connector to the wiring harness. Retested and all was normal after the sensor warmed up. Warranty item #8 complete.

Anyone else encounter a problem like this??

P/P

Peace :flag

Mike, I been there so many times some folks think I'm on the payroll. I wander around and usually BS with the techs as they're working. A couple of smart ones who I hope don't find employment elsewhere.
The service mgr is a little forgetful, maybe because I ask him every time about my antenna problem. I know they really really try to please their customers though.

P/P

Peace :flag

antenna bad?

the guy I deal with locally is great, he ordered a replacement part on my suggestion(something I learned on a thread), even though they couldn't duplicate the problem. I guess it's good it fixed it.
have you ever read the threads on antenna problems? I think there's a good fix! :flag

Don't want to sound like a know nothing girl but where is the connector located? I want to have a look see! I mentioned that mine would sometimes run rough. I haven't had any testing but it is due for an oil change I might ask then.

Sorry for missing your reply, Wildcat

This wire is about 18" long and goes from the sensor end to the main wiring harness then to the PCM. The wiring harness end had the corroded pins.
