147 GTA EOBD Engine Control System Failure

147 GTA EOBD Engine Control System Failure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello all,

This is my first posting and first time using the forum.

I look forward to responses.

I was drving my GTA this morning and the EOBD warning light came on for about 10 seconds (warning light looks like a small engine).

Its the first time that it has come on.

I checked the manuel and it looks like it is a fault in the supply / ignition system which could cause high emmissions at the exhaust and high fuel consumption.

I have noticed over the last month or two that there is a hell of alot of exhaust emmissions when I first start the car for about 5 minutes and the fuel consumption has been quite high.

A lot more emmissions than any other car I have ever owned.

Does anybody know what needs to be done to get the problem resolved or have experienced the same problem.

Obvious question - What is the damage going to be to get the problem resolved.

hook up to an examiner to start, the possible faults are endless, but if the light came on a fault will be logged...

I would suggest it is 1 or more of the O2 sensors associated with the cat converter. There are 4 and 2 are real ba.....ds to get to The examiner will tell you which ones are crook
