    I dont have any on mine but my MIL light is on. I heard some people have problems with the MIL Eliminators. I heard they dont turn the light off, but I dunno. I'd like to know also

    i also heard that once your mil light comes on it's a bitch to turn off and your car goes into "safe mode" and loses power

    The front o2 sensors can cause it to go into open loop where it adjusts the fuel trims to a higher percent to compensate for the inability to read the air fuel. That will need a new sensor.

    The rear o2's do nothing to cause that. Just get a tune and have them turned off. Both my cars have that.
    Hope this helps

    I had mil elims on for the short time that I ran an o/r H, and they worked fine. It's no big deal if you don't put them on though, it won't do anything except trip the check engine light.

    They will plug in just fine. Just use some anti sieze. However it is the connectors into the harness where you put the MIL eliminators. Otherwise it will set the CEL off.
