Just the guy to help. Codes say:
- O2 Sensor, bank 1, sensor 1
- O2 Sensor, bank 2, sensor 1
- Lean condition

What's wrong?

I wonder of you can still buy test pattern generators? TV guys used them. But there is this:

I'm with you on that. There are certain words/phrases I just don't want to hear at certain times of the day, even then I want a warning so I can at least mentally tune them out. I kinda feel sorry for parents today - young kids must be asking what this stuff means. Just doesn't seem right for prime time.

What's wrong?
Take the codes and the car make/model/year/engine and plug them in a search engine. There tends to be common issues with each make/model/year/engine car, and some diagnostics to narrow it down if there are several possibilities.

Better than the old days: Hmmm, car misfires. Is it - fuel filter, carb (jets, float, gasket....), points, coil, fouled plug, arcing spark plug wire, and on and on. No codes to guide you.

Didn't know they quit making them
