This error is caused by a lambda (oxygen) sensor. Although many variables may contribute, the discussion is on lambda sensor. What is the work of a lambda sensor? Lambda sensor serves as the nose of a PCM (power control Module), it tells the system's computer how much oxygen is available, by sniffing, then the pcm will now determine the air/fuel ratio to use for a stoichiometric combustion.   If the sensor sniffs more oxygen, it will send signal to pcm  and equivalent fuel will be supplied to ensure a complete burning. What does complete burning mean in an engine? A complete burning or combu
