I know it's a low voltage reading in the drivers side pre-cat o2 sensor. I've cleared it 3 times keeps coming back, usually a cleaning of the air filter gets it to stop, at least on my other caprices. Any specific ideas though on cause or cure? Inspection sticker is overdue and it's a 96.

Just a guess here, but do you have an exhaust manifold leak on that side?
Thats the only time I saw a code on my 96. Cant remember which code it was tho

Actually there is a tick on that side, I disnt even think about that! If that doesn't do it I will replace the sensor... I just figured id ask before tearing into stuff.

Does the "tick" go away after the engine warms up? If so, Check for broken bolt on that side.

Just so you know, '96 shouldn't have to pass emissions anymore as of this year, however I don't know if a Check Engine light will fail you just for being on?

Wait so I won't have to pass emissions??? Shoot here come the mods then!!! BTW it was an exhaust gasket, cleared the code today, I now however have a po300 random misfire and flashing Ses light, so a tune up it is! And while I'm at it, it may get paint and dressed up.
