Default P2270, 2011 4.0, 4,600km

Crap. Brand new. Got a CEL - code was P2270. Reset, but still occurs maybe 1 of every three trips. Shortly after starting to drive. Jiggled the wiring/connector to the passenger-side downstream O2 sensor but no difference. Scangauge unit comes in handy!

Of course, will be taking in to the dealer (warranty) but that's a PITA since I'll have to figure out some schedule not to miss work...

Any other ideas would be appreciated. Never heard of O2 sensors going bad so quickly. Not sure if it's anything else upstream or just a wiring/connector issue.

It certainly shouldn't be throwing a code this early in it's life. I'm sorry to hear that.

See if the dealer can give you a loaner or at least a ride to and from work while it's in the shop. If the dealer won't accommodate your work schedule, call or e-mail Ford directly. A truck barely on the road shouldn't be giving you any grief and Ford should take care of you.

Update: repaired under warranty. Passenger-side O2 sensor replaced.

FWIW, the invoice says "EEC TEST. CHECKED REAR HARNESS. FUEL PRESSURE TEST. DCL DISPLAY. REPLACED RIGHT SIDE CAT MONITOR SENSOR."
