  • FOUND: I inspected the vehicle and verified the client's concern that the check engine light is illuminated and there are misfire concerns present. I retrieved diagnostic trouble code P0300 which indicates there's a misfire concern on multiple cylinders. I retrieved diagnostic trouble code P0175 which indicates Bank 2 is running rich. I retrieved diagnostic trouble code P0171 which indicates Bank 1 is running lean. I retrieved diagnostic trouble code P0157 which indicates the Bank 2 downstream oxygen sensor switch rate is lower than anticipated. I performed the necessary diagnostic testing and found the Bank 2 rear oxygen sensor has failed. This failure is causing the PCM to cut off fuel to the Bank 2 fuel injectors which is causing the misfire concern. This is effecting fuel delivery to Bank 2 of the engine. Recommend replacing the oxygen sensor, resetting the adaptive fuel strategy and test driving the vehicle to address any additional concerns.

  • FOUND: I serviced the HVAC system and found the system low. After the service was completed I found there is no compressor operation and the HVAC system does not produce cold air. Recommend performing an electrical system diagnosis to pinpoint the cause of the compressor circuit fault. I performed an electrical system diagnosis for the AC compressor clutch circuit and found the fuse and relay are good. I inspected the exposed portions of the wiring harness and found there is no indication of a fault. With the system powered up and running I tested for power and ground at the AC clutch field coil. I found power and ground are present at the field coil, however the field coil fails to engage the clutch. This is an indication of an internal failure with the field coil for the AC compressor clutch. Recommend replacing the AC compressor and condenser assembly.
