does my lude have the power to heal its self

so for the few that read some post i had a while back i was getting a CEL code say my o2 and cat going out. i was thinking it was just an o ring leaking oil in to the exhaust but ppl said it was my o2 and cat that just went bad and probably not o rings. well a few weeks ago i put in a can of restore engine stuff and some stp stop leak. well i still had the CEL. last week i did some audio stuff and took off the battery cable now when i did this b4 the light would go off and then 10 mints it come back on well i did it light was off and now a week later it still off i know the light is good come on when i start the car but how if my cat and o2 wear bad could it just fix its self or do u think it was a bad O ring on the valves and the stp did its job eather that or my lude is has super powers

I dunno, I doubt the o2 and cat fixed themselves.. I have no idea how thats possible... if it was the rings and you fixed it congrats, but I wouldve expected that to work faster than a few weeks.

It probably didn't fix it self, but that engine restore actually works...



...the codes are stored in your OBD II memory...trust me on that. Go get it scanned and it'll be there saying: "O2 sensor" - kaput.










...well, it wont say kaput

WERD will become famous soon enoughWERD will become famous soon enough
haha mine fixes itself all the time. misfiring one day the next its fine. fill the car up with gas and the CEL just dissapears. its truly a magical vehicle. regardless of its regenerative abilities though i still like to follow it up myself to be sure.
