A P0431 code is most often the result of an improperly functioning. To really understand what is happening you need to check the lambda values.
As oxygen storage capacity decreases, the heated oxygen sensor 2 switching frequency will increase. What are the symptoms of the P0431 code? Just be aware that it may take the engine several cycles clear the code. Thanks for stopping in, and for some great info on , and , be sure to check out our Article Index!
