Have it towed and save yourself replacing the O2 sensors and maybe the cat. ...J.D.
Yes, old fuel can be an issue. The code though, is telling you it is not burning the fuel completely. I would reset the code. I f it comes back you are going to have to replace your plugs or other ignition pieces. ...J.D.
That is why I don't mess around with clowns like Auto Zone. Get your own code reader and learn how to use it, then you are sure what the problem is. Worth every penny. ...J.D.Interesting..Autozone says it's P0305, but we brought it to the mechanic and the only code showing, don't know which one, is for one of the sensors, nothing else.
Mine 2011 had issues with the shutter almost like a misfire at 35-40 mph It was in tranny something with the torque converter I changed the fluid and filter and it fixed it and had the same code also and it ended up being the 3rd converter that is unmoniterd but it would through the code also o2 sensorsI just bought a 2006 Endeavor with this code, they said (at Autozone) it's a spark plug or coil, I'll be bringing it in to the mechanic on Thursday.
The people selling said it was good to fair condition, that's on me. There was low oil, added oil, the car runs rough, shakes, stutters, badly at around 35-40 mph, better before and after, but still rough and shaky.
that's basically all I have at this point.
I need to drive it about 30 minutes on the highway to get to my mechanic, but everything I read says I'll destroy the catalyst.
Engine light is on steady, not blinking.
Trying to get some info from those who may have had some experience with this.
