I was driving my s80 2.9L to work this morning when I started loosing power. I would try to give it more gas but no matter how far down I pushed the gas pedal, the car just wouldn't respond. After I turned it off and let it sit for a second then turned it back on, it was doing the same thing, and then it started responding again, like it was stuck or something.
I took my car to AutoZone and they gave me three codes.
When I looked up the codes, it all related to the o2 sensor. Could this be the source of my issues or is this a separate issue. Could this be as easy as replacing a fuse or do I have to take it in and get a brand new o2 sensor? Everyone I have told has said that it is a vacuum leak or water in my gas line.
Our NBC news station did a story about multiple gas stations in town that have water in their tanks. I am really hoping that it is not a lot of water in my tank, and it is condinsation. My best case is the vacuum hose.
I am not sure if it is misfiring. When the above happens, it seems like it just goes back to idle, and does not go above 1500 RPM. I checked and there is no fluid leaking, I'm sure my check engine light would be on if the bulb worked :-/ (Anyone know how to fix that as well?), and it sounds normal. (No shaking, no reving without the gas pedal being pressed, no backfiring, no rough exhaust... Nothing seems to be wrong except the fact that I cannot accelerate.).
I am sorry that I am repeating myself... :-/ I just don't think I am conveying my issue correctly.
Thanks in advanced!
