Gasoline in tank

Well filled. up at a local fill station. The person asked me what I wanted I replied with diesel and I also have a diesel fuel cap. So he ends up filling it with gasoline. I get the tank drained, filters changed etc.

I go to pick it up from the fill station and I notice a weird hum. I scan for codes and a P0470 comes up. I'm thinking the mechanic bumped or hit the sensor while changing the secondary fuel filter.

I'm looking for a picture that shows the location of the sensor. In case they try and give me the run around and not want to fix it.

And the argument for a raise in minimum wage for unskilled workers comes from where.... Just pouring gas on a distant fire


But sorry to hear your misfortune

Follow the upper radiator hose towards the engine and you'll find the thermostat housing. There is a bracket on the housing that contains the exhaust backpressure sensor. 3 main things to check are the sensor connector, sensor and the tube leading up from the exhaust manifold

It was a older fellow who pumps fuel because he enjoys it (retired). I talked to a few people around town during my day and he has done it before. The worst part is I missed out on a days work which isn't cheap.

It's in the past I just want things made right

Thanks SINNER, I have to put a few kms on it tomorrow morning. Is it alright to run it with fauly sensor for a few hours?
