P0155 De Tomaso Mangusta code definition:
P0155 is a kind of OBD-II Diagnostic P-Powertrain Diagnostic Trouble Code for De Tomaso Mangusta.

P0155 De Tomaso Mangusta is a DTC or a diagnostic trouble code. It is a check engine light code which indicates that the catalyst's system efficiency is less than the required threshold. In simple terms, it means that more pollution is added into the air than what was supposed to be because of your car. There are two wires dedicated for each coil; one is battery feed which usually comes from the distribution center, and the other one for the coil driver circuit from the PCM.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a P0155 De Tomaso Mangusta diagnostic trouble code may include:
  • Faulty or damaged wiring
  • The engine oil will exhibit dilution from the ECUs attempts to increase engine temperature. Some vehicles advance the fuel injection timing slightly after top center to afterburn a small amount of fuel to increase exhaust temperatures. Some of this fuel enters the crankcase. When the ECU determines the necessity to regenerate the DPF, the service life of the oil be shortened significantly
  • Poor fuel economy
  • If the DPF is not cleared the ECU will revert to the "Limp Home Mode" until the situation is corrected
