borderline falt , may be petro rating low, may be failing o2 heater area in sensor, no biggie ,no harm


There might be a pending code that could be read. Pending codes are situations that have not happened enough to trip the check engine light. --- Continue to drive the car and it will pop up when you can least afford to fix it.
