Error code - P2096
Got this error code and I'm stumped. I've managed to figure out what the code means but not how to solve it. I was in NJ the other night and decided to take advantage of the cheaper gas mistake...I'm driving home prob about 60 miles after fueling up and the damn check engine light comes on. I'm hoping it's just contaminated fuel from the Getty station in NJ but I'm not banking on it. Chances are its the O2 sensor (just my luck, can't be anything easy). Anyway, I've added the sea foam fuel additive to attempt to "clean" up the remaining 1/4 tank of gas I have left before I add fresh fuel to the tank just in case I get lucky. My question is which of the O2 sensors do I replace if it's not the fuel (the autoparts store said there are 4)? Does anyone have the part #s?
The engine is running completely normal, have no exhaust leak & the gas cap is good. It's the 5.7l hemi and only has 48,667 miles on it in a 2006 grand Cherokee limited. I always thought the O2 sensors lasted till roughly 80,000-100,000 miles?

From what I'm reading on the dodge forums this is a fairly common code. Seems like a lot of discussion about the drivers side downstream o2 sensor.

Thanks Drew! Lady luck was on my side this morning...filled up 12 gallons with 93 octane and the check engine light turned off. I guess the fresh fuel with the fuel treatment i added last night did the trick!
