What are the codes?

Took it to AutoZone didn't see the codes but the kid said O2 sensor and 3 others popped up about tranny but not sure about the other codes , he said it was the first sensor on the exhaust

It is possible the O2 is bad, but there is usually a underlying problem, like a intake manifold leak. I would at least suggest to snug the bolts up, its probably running rich.

Ok thanks I will check those , might take back and have write down codes too. Thanks again
