2017 Miata Grand Touring CEL

Postby JoeA217 » Wed Oct 21, 2020 2:49 pm

Hello,

I have the Roadstersport Super Q, Roadstersport Mid-Pipe, Injen Air Intake, and 1320 Performance Headers. My CEL stays on after starting the car, which was not an issue prior to the upgrades. The codes were P0421 and P0171. 1320 Performance recommended to purchase their angled spacer which I did and installed on the secondary O2 sensor per their instruction. The CEL didn’t stay lit after starting the car and driving it on the freeway, but it eventually came back on the next time I drove the car. The codes I’m getting this time are P2096 and P0137. I was wondering if someone out there is having similar issues and how it got rectified. I greatly appreciate any feedback anyone may have. Otherwise, I am planning on just having my stock headers re-installed and not have to deal with the CEL issue; lest, I have a real engine problem in the future and wouldn’t know that it’s actually a legitimate issue. Thanks so much!

Joe

Hi Joe

Sorry, never heard of that header before. Normally no codes if full header back system installed and the O2 sensors are retained but post header converter sensor is moved to position post the midpipe cat. From what you have written, not clear to me that second sensor is now after midpipe converter?

Hey Brian,

The header came with an O2 sensor mount and it’s about an inch below the four tubes coming down from where it’s mounted on the engine and it’s currently connected. The mid pipe is the part 61-2660 RoadsterSport Premium 304 which I bought from your company. I believe the secondary O2 sensor is at the mid pipe. I’m not sure if this answers your question.

Thanks,
Joe

Where is the second O2....in relation to the converter, before or downstream?

Make sure wires exit both O2 sensors without being pinched over at hard angle. The sensors have tiny breathing holes out the back center of each between the wires and will not function correctly if those get covered.

Will have that secondary O2 sensor checked. The 1st O2 sensor is not pinched. Thanks Brian!
