Thanks!


Damnit, I knew the straight pipe and flowmasters would kill the O2 sensors. The good news is that as many people who own rangers already know the truck actually gets faster if the O2 dies. :D So I am happy there, and I fixed the annoying little check engine light problem too.

So instead of properly fixing your problem you created another one by not knowing in the future if your truck is throwing codes?

I agree with the Canadian. sometimes you can't always know when your trucks going to throw a code. They make a fake sensor of sorts, you plug it in and it acts as a function o2 sensor to shut the light off.

Sounds pretty good.

But yeah, get the problem fixed properly, or maybe you will regret it in the future.

an idiot light is a light that comes on for high engine temp or low oil pressure as opposed to a gauge. not the CEL.

OP, I recommend you take Taylor's advice. You'll only make it hard on yourself with an attitude like that.

There is most definitely a proper way to delete cats if thats what you are into. My truck has been running for a couple years without the two rear cats and I have never once had a check engine light. I'm not going to explain how to make your exhaust illegal on a public forum but if you want to know, just pm me. Total cost was less that 10 bucks and about a half hour of time (rusty exhaust).
