Hi all, in my quest for a perfectly running s3, having recently had all 4 coil packs & spark plugs replaced, I sent the car in for a service today, and now every filter, fluid, you name it has been changed. While the car was in I got it scanned for fault codes, & the following came up:
17861- exhaust gas temp sensor 1 (g235) open or short to plus p1453
16514- O2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 malfunction in circuit p0130
Looking into a few pages on this site, it seems it could be other problems that have caused these codes to come up as a result... Since these sensors are rather expensive, I wondered if anyone could offer their opinions as to why these codes may have been thrown up together, and if there are any other things I should be looking at first, before replacing the sensors. Mpg and power have been slightly affected too, in my opinion.
thanks in advance :-)
