Had the injectors replaced- no difference.

Plus, my fuel consumption hasn't changed, which the o2 sensor would affect am i right?


Feels bad sorry about that

Amm i have heard a few of the xr6 turbo guys skipping teeth are you hard on the car?

Ya 02 if its bad would defiantly put fuel consumption down


I'm on timming chain coils or injector or pump

But while on the topic does anyone know what these obd2 connectors are like any software that the op she could use with her android phone etx to view errors?

As its only a simple $5 cable the computer might throw her a code and help us out any knowledge on the subject anyone?

Your "mechanic"... is no mechanic at all, by the sounds of it!. F@#ken imbecile... thats what he is. First thing he should have done is hook up a scan tool to check for fault codes and see what the computer is doing. Was it also his idea to throw all those new parts onto the car??

You need to have it put on a scan tool so you can check all the pids. It could be as simple as an oil control valve sticking, and you have one camshaft advanced and one retarded.
