Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1 Answer

2000 olds intrigue... Service codes show P0031 na P0037. I had the MAFS replaced and a new O2 sensor installed. Now, while driving at exactly 4000 rpm, the engine stumles and there is no power. As soon as the rpm drops off to about 3500, it revs back up. The car runs fine during normal city driving at about 30-40 mph. But during a quick takeoff, the car stumbles, and while driving at highway speeds, in order to get over 60mph, you have to put the pedal to the floor. It is using more gas than it should too, but only while driving on the highway. Any thoughts out there?

    The exhaust was recently replaced as well.

    ok this is what you do when you ever change a sensor in your car.always unhook the battery first and turn the ignition key all the way to start position you know like you are turning over the engine. when you turn it to the start position hold it in the start position for a ten second count and then turn it to the off position. change the sensor then hook your battery back up. and start the car, by unhooking the battery and holding the key over in start position for a ten second count , you cleared all your codes first. this has to be done first because your vehicle has a computer ECM, and its called a brain, well it has to be able to read the new sensor, so always clear your codes first then replace sensor and start the car, if there is anything else out on the car it will turn on the [MILL] LIGHT, also known as the service engine light. some car have a built in OBDII, if they have a digital mileage then turn the key on 3 turns back and fourth and leave the key on .... on the third turn. the digital display will go to a code reading mode and codes will appear so have a pen and paper handy, then some cars have what they call a flash code. when you turn your key on and off and leave it on on the third time. then the service light will blink. just watch the light and count how many times it blinks there should be a pause in the flash until it flashes the next code, so count the blinks each time then go to google and type in vehicle flash codes, then it will go to a web sight where you can type in the number of flashes you got for each code, it will tell you the code and what it means, i hope i helped you out.after codes have been cleared if there is a lght on again then its a true code, do not clear it again until you fix the new code whatever it might be,

No that is not possible. You either have lost power or ground to sensors or the system has a fuel control issue.

'05 PT Cruiser O2 sensor problems.


I had a similar problem with my car. It turned out the O2 sensors were fine and the issue was a leak in the throttle body causing the engine to run lean. If you have an ODB2 scanner you can look at fuel trims, etc and will be able to tell.

I am getting a P0031, P1512, & P0421 code


P0031 - most likely pointing to a failed O2 sensor (bank 1 sensor 1 is located before the catalytic converter)

P0421 - failed catalytic converter or a failed O2 sensor

P1512 - intake manifold shutter valve is stuck - may be caused by the O2 sensor, but may not

I recommend replacing your O2 sensor first and see what happens

05 COROLLA P0031


What does that mean? A P0031 DTC (diagnostic trouble code) refers to the O2 sensor (oxygen sensor) located on Bank 1 in front of the catalytic converter. There is also an oxygen sensor behind the converter which is Sensor #2.
This O2 sensor #1 may also be refered to as an air/fuel ratio sensor since on some vehicles it is. It detects the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas compared to the outside air and then vehicle's computer adjusts the air/fuel ratio going into the engine. The sensor is less effective when the exhaust gas temperature is low, so it includes a heater which is activated to help get better readings from the A/F O2 sensor. Essentially this P0031 code means that the resistance of the heater circuit is lower than normal. In most cases, that resistance level must fall below 0.8 A to trigger the DTC code.
Note, this code is very similar in nature to P0032, P0051, and P0052

Potential Symptoms Most likely you'll not notice any symptoms other than the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) will illuminate.
Causes A P0031 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
  • A short or open in the heater circuit in the sensor
  • A failed O2 sensor heater
  • Wiring/connectors broken/frayed leading to sensor and/or relay
  • Failed PCM/ECM
Possible Solutions Need an O2 Sensor? Visit our O2 Sensor shopping area for the lowest price on your replacement sensor!
To fix a P0031 DTC code, you'll need to do a proper diagnosis. To do that, you'll want to inspect the wiring and connectors leading to the sensor. Also if equipped with a heater relay and fuse, you'll want to check those as well. Use a digital volt ohm meter to:
  • check for 12 volts at the heater circuit feed (hint: unplug the sensor and check at the wiring connector to do this measurement)
  • check the ground circuit for continuity
  • measure the resistance of the heater circuit (done on the sensor itself)
  • measure the resistance and voltage of the wiring
Refer to a service manual for the correct specifications (volts, ohms) for your vehicle. On some Toyota vehicles this code is triggered when the resistance of the heater circuit is below 0.8 A.
With that said, a common fix for this DTC is to replace the air/fuel (O2 oxygen) sensor #1 on bank 1.
Please keep in mind that OEM (original equipment) replacement sensors are recommended (from the dealer). Aftermarket sensors can be less reliable and of poorer quality (not always, but more often). There's also a chance that replacement parts for the P0031 code may also fall under a federal emissions warranty (check with your dealer to see if it's covered).

P102 Service Engine light warning came up.


MAP and O2 sensor are two separate items. MAP, reads manifold pressure, O2 reads exhaust content. O2 sensor often is a false reading not to be ignored but should not be immediately changed till other items are corrected. MAP sensor is often mounted on the firewall and can be identified as having an electrical connector and a vacuum hose attached to it. (ask a parts house to show you one and it will make finding it easier) Check for vacuum leaks in the hose and make sure the hose is well connected at both ends before changing the sensor. You may also want to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor located between the air duct hoses running from the air filter box to the throttle body. There are two small wires inside it that can be cleaned carefully with carb cleaner and a Q tip.If dirty, it can cause idle fluctuations or stalling.
