I had the exhaust manifolds replaced last Friday. Here is the report;
"P2098 Down Stream Fuel Trim system too lean. Contact ED Star Line and told them what was going on with the vehicle. They never heard about this before. They had me talk to Field Technical Services Group. After Talking to Field Technical Services Group they had me run a few more tests and found a pin hole leak at the left and right bank Exhaust manifolds."
"After running test and finding exhaust leaks at the exhaust manifolds, removed the bad manifolds and replaced the seals and installed updated exhaust manifolds. Reinstalled all removed parts. Ran test again and the leaks are gone. The vehicle is running good and the engine light is staying off."
The service advisor drove the car about 50 miles before turning the car back over to me. I drove it around town in Tucson that day, and then drove it home (about 100 miles). No check engine light. It's been in the garage since Sunday, and will be driven to a show on Saturday about 35 miles from here. While I'm still skeptical about the fix, we'll find out in the next few weeks if this was the fix. Stay tuned.
