Some of the problems are caused by our government themselves. The government also contributes to the high cost of repairs. Just 2 examples:
The loose gas cap causes the computer system to observe that it is not possible to pull a vacuum in the gas tank to collect fuel vapors. The same problem is caused by a small hole in the fuel system such as one caused by excessive use of salt and the resultant corrosion.
Catalytic converters do have a life expectancy which is shortened by other engine issues. The government has made it impossible to purchase a used but useable one from a salvage yard. The choices are to ignore the problem or spend several hundred dollars to purchase a new one.
Life will be better and cheaper when we get bureaucrats in Washington that actually know something and have some common sense.
I got the same reading my car--took it back to the dealer where they fixed it right away--kind of expensive--It was a defective FUEL INJECTOR.
Runs great now that it has been fixed.
it is amazing that in the year 2014 you have a car with a 10 inch touchscreen with GPS navigation and all kinds of information and entertainment, but the best that that the engine diagnostics can do is say "help I've fallen..." and turn on an idiot light that you have to pay someone to check for you.
This is obviously a conspiracy.
it's usually just a bad sensor...
cars would not be breaking down all the time if we didn't have them loaded with electronics and complexity...
