Hi my fusion 2004 as just passed an mot 2 a week ago , today the MIL light as come on and when i put a OBD CODE READER it comes up low effeciency bank 1 ( i forgot to write the code down )
what i need to know is could it just be a sensor OR WORSE CASE SENERIO IT BE THE cat EVEN THOUGH IT JUST PASSED MOT EMMISIONS ETC
with it saying bank 1 is this refering to the sensor at the very top of the exhaust were it goes into the manifold or the very bottom underneath the cat, and if i have to replace the sensor are both sensors the same part ( are they just a simple take out and relace or do i have to reset anything when i put a new one in ?

Vin Number Check Semi Automatic Or Manual

21 August 2012 - 07:35 PM

ok i have a ford fusion city 54 plate, seems to be some confusion i bought it a while ago from the person who bought it brand new i have the original invoice for the sale were they bought it from, it says on it ford fusion city ( no mention of transmission i,eweather it semi auto or manual etc ?
when i bought it of the original owner it said on the log book semi automatic ? i queried this and they said it had always been like that on the log book and never had any transmission changes been made by them even though the car is clearly a manual transmission ?
so i assume that it has been a clerical error
my question is , is there any way of checking through the vin numbers regarding the transmission details
