oxygen sensor readings

Postby Timmy_t » Fri Feb 03, 2017 10:26 pm

I have a gen 4 pre facelift H6 and trying to get to the bottom of an issue.

i scanned my car and read some of the live data last week.

The drivers side cat was done and the O2 sensors at the front and back were reading 2.7+/-. At first i thought it was the sensors so changed them but still changed nothing.
So i changed the cats for some new ones. The sensors on passenger side are reading .6+/- (I've read thats a good reading but please correct me if i'm wrong) but i cant understand why the drivers side is reading so high.

Should i be looking for another issue?

is the air/fuel too lean/rich? and what could some of the causes be?

just so that i can start checking of a list of what i can check

A static reading doesn't mean much. The pre cat O2 sensor is part of a feedback loop. The post cat sensor will tell you if the cat is working correctly.
