How to change an oxygen sensor on a 2006 Buick rendezvous


The trouble code should tell you which 02 sensor? The 02 sensors are in the exhaust, sensor 1/sensor2, whatever, bank 1/bank2, whatever, before the cat, after the cat. You have several 02 sensors in the exhaust, don't know which one?
You should be able to remove/install with proper size wrench or deep socket. They do make an 02 sensor socket that has that slot in it, not sure if you need that, though.

Bank 1 o2 sensor 1999 honda accord lx v6, i need the location to change it. i can not find it in the front of my car


Bank 1 is at the back of the engine compartment next to the firewall. You'll need to know if you need to change (bank 1 sensor 1), or (bank1 sensor2). Sensor 1 is located in the exhaust system between the rear cylinder head and the catalytic converter. Sensor 2 is after the cat in the exhaust system after the cat.

Error code P0430 rear catlytic converter where exactly is this located and what does it look like and estimated price?


just a word of advice there is no sensor that tells you if you need a cat ! that code comes on because of faulty o2 sensors have you changed the 02 sensors yet ? if not change them reset ( clear ) the codes that code will come on a few times just keep resetting or clearing it i have had 2 co workers not listen to me and changed the cat 400-600 dollars and the code just comes back on one guy had the cat changed two times and the code came back after i reset the codes 3 times it stayed off it seems like its preset to come on around 100,000 miles with 02 sensor codes DONT LET THE MECHANIC SELL YOU A CAT hope this helps

Code po420 on scan tool but o2 sensor was replace 2 months ago


Hello and welcome. the code P0420 is for a bad cat. converter. replacing 02 sensors wont repair this code. the code simply's means that thje cat. converter is not working as designed and will need to be replaced.

The PCM determines the oxygen storage capability of the catalytic converter has degraded below a calibrated threshold.

Ford Explorer 1998 4.0 sohc Diagnostic trouble code P0420.. I was told two different definitions. 1- oxygen sensor and 2 left side catalytic converter


If you don't have poor gas milage and loss of power, the cat is not restricted and not at fault, however, an engine misfire can also trigger that code.
Change the 02 sensor down by the cat first,( it's cheaper than a cat), see if that clears the code, if not, then go for the cat. You will already have a new 02 sensor, so that will eliminate those two. Hope this helped.

Check engine light on PO420 code ? recalls


Huge problems with these cars. The Pre-cat converter is built into the exhaust manifold. Expensive to replace. No Recall on this item. Some say that inferior compounds in the catalyst cause corrosion and early wear of the piston rings. I have seen one of these use 5 qts of oil in 300 miles. Is this car using excess oil?

#2 02 sensortrips the ligh, but is not necessarily the prblem that cause it to trip.Your emissions are too high and it could be running too rich or the cat cnverter is not efficient. The first 02 sensor constantly makes fuel adjustments so it too can be defective.

P0134 Error Code


The code refers to an oxygen sensor that is no longer detecting changes in fuel delivery by way of sensing exhaust oxygen content. Bank 1, sensor 1, tells you which sensor is bad, in this case, it's the sensor that is mounted before the catalytic converter, on the rear bank of cylinders as you look into the engine compartment. It would really be a good idea to change both pre-cat O2 sensors at this point as they are both twelve years old.
