    and anyone who cares but as neal has help loads take a look at this,

    plugged the peake tool in and im getting these codes witch all seem to point to o2 sensor ,

    F1,F2,F3 missfire on cylinders 4-6
    CB o2 sensor control limit on cylinders 4-6
    E4 o2 sensor adaptation limit on cylinders 4-6

    so take it the o2 sensor is causing the missfire, so replacing this will cure it ,

    also it doesnt say which o2 sensor it is as i no some models have more than 1 , any help muchly appreciated

    also am i ok driving it if steady until i can get a sensor fitted,

    Yes, I moved it...don't worry, I can see new threads
    You must be looking at Table 15 in your Peake hand book right? The very first thing to do is check for air leaks after the MAF. Also, you have 2 pre cat and 2 after cat sensors...so four in total.

    It does sound like you have an airflow problem. Check the whole of the throttle body pipe as well as any pipes leading off it

    Should be fine but your mpg will be really low.

    neal iv checked for leaks in the big airpipe after the maf plus all pipes leading off it, with warm soapy water while engine was runnin and nothing made engine note change nor did and were bubble the soap, like air leaks would, also tried squeezing the big pipe and still no engine note change so don think i got an air leak, do u no which one of the o2 sensors is first to break down or even better which one controls cylinders 4,5,6

    i presume im supposed to replace both front o2 sensors together , same with rear , but its the fronts that cause this problem is that right?
