Well, long story short I had to remove my front right tire because I bottomed out last year and killed my front bumper..... aka was a zip tie technician today, anyways as I was doing this I noticed my second ( midpipe) O2 sensor was mysteriously unplugged..... last year I installed zzp's downpipe but at no point was I near that sensor..... can anyone with a 2011 RS take a look for me if you can and see if yours is unplugged or did I just have a faulty clip.

I even got a recall this morning for an emissions recall?? saying that it wont pass an emissions test?... they have to reprogram the ECU? im confused....

I think that's the one that came out this month for all 2011 - 2013 Cruze. First I've heard that will cause individuals to fail an emissions test. I thought it was for emissions compliance at the corporate level.

It'll pass emissions without the recall......do get that O2 plugged in though.....

The recall is a result of the car being slightly out of compliance (rich) at wide open throttle.....a situation that is not tested for emissions.

I plugged it in asap as i found out it had been unplugged, car seemed louder for some odd reason. it was a short 5 km drive around my sub division anyways but still, maybe the clip broke or something, thanks though!
