Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab

3 Answers

96 Ford truck engine lIght will not go away.

96 F-150 351w, 2wheel drive, ext cab. I have been fighting a check engine light for about a year now. The code says that all three O2 sensors pop for something about "heater." I have replaced all o2 sensors, EGR valve, thermostat, air inlet temp sensor, fuel pressure regulator, and about to change the coolant temp sensor. The truck has never overheated or have gotten hot for that matter. Symtoms, running rich and at fuel throttle, light black smoke. After resetting computer, the first start will not trigger the light, I drove one time for over 250 miles and no light. As soon as I turn it off and back on again no matter the length of time the check engine light comes on in about 10-15 seconds. Timming is good. Any ideas?

    I feel a little dumb but, I said that I would reset my computer and problem kept comming back, which was true. I just got new tires at Pep boys and for sh*t and giggles I had them check my codes again. The one that I origialy claimed was not there. There was two codes in history and they cleared them out. Started the Truck and the check engine light did not come on until about 5 min later. Checked code, one O2 sensor was malfunctioning. Pep boys did not have an O2 sensor in stock will, replace tomorrow and re-post. Hopefully this will do it.

    Question: Do codes disapper? And would one OBO2 reader tell something different than another?

    Thanks for the input, I,ve been trying to avoid taking it to a shop and have it run but if that is what I got to do then, thats it. I apprietiate it.

    It was the computer.

    LDV maxus 2.8 EGR valve been fitted and blanked off with plate Black exhaust problem still exisits as does the hunting tick over, also van runs away when throttle not in use, engine temp never rises above a quarter or fan not turning.Have put engine cleaner in fuel and ran at 70-80 mph for 50 miles , engine never missed a beat, Any suggestions/ideas what the problem could be?

This is the problem with code readers they bwill tell you the code and sometimes even have a reset feature. However they do not tell you the parameters and don't have an drivability feature so you can not test the ecm and all the sensors or modules while engine is running. diagnostic scan tools are very expensive and hard to use unless you have been trained to do so and PEP BOYs is not what I call real reliable mechanics to begin with. Now I concure with toddG on his reasoning in what might be the potential fault. if your vehicle is running rich or lean your O2 sensor will pick this up on the exaust side, however it is not the sole sensor responsible for the ecm adjusting the fuel air mixture.. you stated that you have switched out several o2 sensors and the fuel pressure regulator, but there is also you mass air flow sensor, your TPS sensor, as well as your map sensor these are worth checking out and just because a faulty sensor is the problem doesn't mean you will get a code each time. the system is built with redundancy in order to keep the vehicle running. in order to get the best possible diagnois take it to a shop where they have a full diagnostic scanner this will have not only OBD1 and OBD2 but cam protocol as well. while the tech is scanning the vehicle he will be able to see how the engine is performing under realtime conditions. please rate this as well as change the rating for toddg because he did offer a valid suggestion

    The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) keeps coming on with a code P0155 for the Oxygen (O2) sensor heater circuit for bank 2, sensor 1. Has a new O2 sensor, and the circuit tests out fine with an ohmmeter. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is grounding the circuit momentarily after the engine starts, then the ground goes away. Replaced the PCM, but the same code still sets. the fix ................ Found a poor connection in the wiring harness feeding the left front sensor, in the harness right by the power steering pump

    i forgot you could have a stuck open Canister Purge Solenoid. this would explain the light black smoke at full throttle . good luck jimmy.......

    i did forget the fuse box has a power supply to the 02 heater. the computer gives the ground and monitors the input. if it doesnt see power the computer will set the code right away.it looks like fuse number 5.

Check the Crankshaft Position Sensor

The CP sensor is mounted on the right front of some V8 engines, is a variable reluctance sensor triggered by a trigger pulse wheel (36 minus 1 tooth). Its purpose is to provide the PCM with an accurate ignition timing reference (when the piston reaches 10 degrees BTDC) and injector operation information (twice each crankshaft revolution). The crankshaft vibration damper is fitted with a 4 lobe pulse ring. As the crankshaft rotates, the pulse ring lobes interrupt the magnetic field at the tip of the CP sensor.

TESTING
Using DVOM on the AC scale and set to monitor less than 5V, measure voltage between the sensor Cylinder Identification (CID) terminal and ground. The sensor is okay if the voltage reading varies more than 0.1V AC with the engine running at varying RPM.

    If the Crankshaft Position Sensor is OK



    The Camshaft Position Sensor, is a Hall-effect sensor that generates a digital frequency while windows in a target wheel pass through its magnetic field. The frequency of the windows passing by the sensor, as well as the width of selected windows, allows the PCM to detect engine speed and position.



    TESTING

    Two-Wire Sensors


    1. With the ignition OFF, install a Breakout Box.
    2. Connect CMP sensor and ECM.
    3. Using DVOM on AC scale and set to monitor less than 5V, measure voltage between Breakout Box terminals 24 and 46 with the engine running at varying RPM. If the voltage reading varies more than 0.1V AC, the sensor is okay.
    Three-Wire Sensors


    1. With the ignition OFF, disconnect the CMP sensor. With the ignition ON and the engine OFF, measure the voltage between sensor harness connector VPWR and PWR GND terminals (refer to the figure). If the reading is greater than 10.5V, the power circuit to the sensor is okay.
    2. With the ignition OFF, install a Breakout Box. Connect CMP sensor and PCM. Using DVOM on AC and scale set to monitor less than 5V, measure voltage between Breakout Box terminals 24 and 40 with the engine running at varying RPM. If the voltage reading varies more than 0.1V AC, the sensor is okay.
    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



    1. Disconnect the camshaft position sensor wiring.
    2. Remove the bolt, then the camshaft position sensor.
    To install:


    1. Install the CMP sensor and bolt in place.
    2. Engage the wiring connector.

    Here is the information on the heated oxygen sensor



    OPERATION

    Heated oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust pipes below the exhaust manifolds. The sensors react with the oxygen in the exhaust gasses and generates a voltage based on this reaction. A low voltage indicates too much oxygen or a lean condition. Where as a high voltage indicates not enough oxygen or a rich condition.



    TESTING


    1. Disconnect the Oxygen Sensor (O2S). Measure resistance between PWR and GND (heater) terminals of the sensor. If the reading is about 6 ohms at 68°F (20°C). the sensor's heater element is okay.
    2. With the O2S connected and engine running, measure voltage with DVOM between terminals HO2S and SIG RTN (GND) of the oxygen sensor connector. If the voltage readings are about equal to those in the table, the sensor is okay.

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    3. Disconnect the heated oxygen sensor from the engine control sensor wiring.

    If excessive force is needed to remove the sensors, lubricate the sensors with penetrating oil prior to removal.


    1. Remove the sensors from the Y pipe or left manifold with a sensor removal tool T94P-9472-A or equivalent.

    To install:


    1. Install the sensor in its correct location, tighten to 26-34 ft. lbs. (36-46 Nm).
    2. Connect the sensor electrical wiring.
    3. Lower the vehicle.
    4. Connect the negative battery cable.

    Codes do not disappear, they remain in history until the history is cleared and no, code readers read the computer and do not retain the information themselves, unless you download to the unit the history. The fact that you have Oxygen sensor code fault denotes that the code is a registered code and has been set into the computer as current. It will be moved to history after the code is no longer registering as a problem in the computer, I am not sure what keemo is trying to say, but it makes no sense and is not correct. The more expensive code readers cover more vehicles and handle a more extensive check on those cars. Such as Mercedes, BMW and other European cars.

My Service Engine Soon light came on about a year ago. I took it into the shop and got that problem fixed but the light stayed on, so I took it to advance auto parts and code tested it and it said that...


There are several types of O2 Sensor codes. There can be "Lean O2 Sensor" codes, "Rich O2 Sensor" codes, "O2 Sensor Slow Response" codes, or "O2sensor Heater Circuit" codes. The specific code that is being set changes the way you must go about diagnosing and repairing the problem. I will say however, that in about 80% of all the O2 Sensor code problems that I have had to diagnose, the O2 Sensor itself was NOT the problem. The O2 Sensor was only reporting a problem that was actually caused elsewhere. O2 Sensors are the final checkpoint in the engine management system. I think of them like a report card. If the O2 Sensors are right, the rest of the engine management system is right. If the O2 Sensors are not right, the rest of the engine management system is probably not right. (Except in the 20% of the cases where the problem is actually being caused by a failed O2 Sensor)

Check engine light on


This is a code that is indicating you have a problem with the "bank 1, O2 sensor 1" heater circuit. Bank one is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1, and sensor #1 is the O2 sensor on that side that is before the catalytic converter. This code sets when the computer senses that it either takes too much or too little current to drive the heater inside the O2 sensor. Typically, most shops would simply put a new O2 sensor in this location as it is ten years old and there is a good chance that the O2 sensor has burnt out However, there is a possibility that the driver circuitry has a problem as well.

I would replace the sensor, I believe it is the one on the passenger side between the engine and the cat. After that, you will have to drive it a bit for the code to cancel, or you could have it reset with a scan tool.

2002 Alero check Engine light Codes P0132, P0137


Code P0132 is O2 sensor voltage high bank1 sensor 1, P0137 is O2 sensor voltage low bank 1 sensor 2, P1189 indicates a fuel control problem bank 1. It could be either the O2 sensors or a convertor. Could also be intake manifold gaskets. GM had a lot of problems with the lower intake gaskets leaking on the 3.1 and 3.4 engines that was linked to their Dexcool coolant. In fact they just lost a class action lawsuit about it. check with the dealer and see if the intake problem has been taken care of. Hope this helps.

Check Engine Light - O2 Sensor - bank 1 running lean


you should have three oxygen sensors on your car, one for each bank of three cylinders; should be towards the Y pipe on each exhaust manifold. Additionally you should have one on the exhaust pipe before the cadilitic converter.
