Help, i'm paranoid!! Was driving back today from Ny to Bos, floored it a few times and played around with a Turbo S. Temps were all normal.
I was bored at one point on 6th gear letting go of the gas pedal and then gently tap it to hear that exhaust "pop". A few miles later I get a "Engine Malfunction Warning" and "Service engine soon" I checked the codes on the AccessPORT and got P2096 (no desc.) & P0159 (heated o2 sensor).

Car is driving normally, its Sunday so everything is closed. Took a service appointment at Nissan on Tue.
I drive my car daily,
-should I be worried? I parked and couldn't see any leak on ground.
-Any ideas what the problem is? Will it damage engine in any way?
-Cost to fix whatever the issue is?

Thanks guys

My bet you will report back it was a burp and no real issue at all.
Diagnosis first then treatment plan and cost estimate.
Right now, best guess is cost will be a few hundred.

I'm not worried as long as it doesn't cause further engine damage, or costly repairs.

If its an o2 sensor problem, is covered under warranty? or no since I have aftermarket dp,mp,cat

There's definitely a difference when I start the car. It turns on faster, but deeper and not as loud as it would. Drives fine tho.

How do i clear the codes. On my AP, i have reset Ecu. If I reset ecu, will it go back to factory ecu, and gear learn is gone?

I wouldn't drop it at a dealer personally lol, I'd wait for it to become a recurring issue. The car is protecting itself with that and trust me if it were a dangerous code there would be more going on lol.

My advice don't let a dealer dig around a custom tuned car or start overwriting things, or playing around, unless its absolutely needed, which at that point its likely do to an engine blowing/trans etc.

Should be fine, talk to your tuner before you trust nissan techs lol I know how scary it can be lol

I mean I'm already scheduled for service tomorrow so I might have them check for exhaust leaks. They also have to replace underpanel screws, few are rusty from snow

I'm getting the same code from bank 2. Pretty sure its the upper 02 sensor on the drivers side. It seems its common for them to go. Just ordered one from amazon.

P2096 is a post catalyst fuel trim fault, this points towards the downstream sensors as these monitor the efficiency of the catalysts. If you have catless downpipes I would just get your tuner to turn off the relevant DTC's.

OFF TOPIC: i had my service done today and I asked the GTR tech at the dealership to check my underpanel screws for rust & damage. He told me a few were rusty, and few were damaged.

He told me to order the screws is around $100 and labor another $100-$150. That sounds wrong.

Any idea where i can find those same screws and do it myself?
