Re: [DML] Disabling Lambda



As far as I know, this is not a high failure item.  If you find the Lambda controller (I assume that is what you are talking about) is again defective, check and see if there is some electrical problem in your car causing it?  Look for voltage drops, bad grounds, loose connections, etc. 

Also, make sure water is not getting in there somehow.  It is a long shot, but possible.  

If you opt to remove the Lambda system, you will see a decrease in fuel economy and probably not pass inspection.
