This code came up. I read what it is-P2000-nox Adsorber Efficiency Below Threshold - Bank 1. Any ideas what it might be pods. When it rains it pours.

I got the same code -- The dealer told me it is actually an O2 sensor problem and not the cat. The O2 sensors get so coverd with soot that they can't read correctly anymore. The short term solution was to clean the soot from the sensor until a newer version is released this month (I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say it will be July or August)

He is correct. The dealer will be cleaning your O2 sensors.:thumbsup

I don't have a problem doing it, just wondering how you do it. The sensors come out so easy, but what do you use on them to clean them??

What you do is just pull them out and make damn sure they are cool then just spray with carb cleaner or something similiar, that is what the dealer will do, also you might get this code for now reason, I have before and it just went away with no problems since. Also have you had the g-30 recall done yet that might have something to do with it.

DO NOT USE ANY CLEANERS!!!!!!!!!!
Directly from the TSB----
When performing the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures for this condition. Make certain
to remove and thoroughly CLEAN BOTH OXYGEN SENSORS using a clean cloth
and compressed air. Do not use any type of liquid cleaner to clean the oxygen
sensor tips. Use compressed air to remove all soot from the oxygen sensor tip that is
inside (under) the metal shield/cover. Blow compressed air into the center hole of the
sensor shield to remove soot from the sensor tip. Ensure all soot has been removed from
the sensor tip (inside the shield) and on the outside of the sensor tip shield.
