    Default cataclear could it work

    i have got error code 0130 on my 3.2 vectra been told its the 02 sensor on bank 1 is bank one at the back of the engine or the front
    also im thinking as i only drive 2 mile a day for most of the week could it just be a build up as the cars not getting used much would catclear be any good and a good blast to manchester and back do it any good
    also anybody know where i can get a o2 sensor from cheap
    thanks for any info

    Hot engine and drive it at high revs for a while. Try that before you spend loads on Cataclean. Should clear it out a bit.

    Give it a good thrashing, get the engine nice and hot. Its surprising what short journeys do and how an italian tune up often helps!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Get it nice and hot and keep it in a gear that keeps the revs up to 5000 or so with the odd blast to the redline. I do this for a few miles to clear mine out.
