Question about Saturn Cars & Trucks

My 2000 Saturn LW2 had an error code for the front oxygen sensor and my speedometer stopped working. How would I be able to fix my speedometer before I replace my oxygen sensor, so I know its not the

My speedometer had just stopped working out of the blue and I haven't really noticed any timing issues with my transmission, but with the error code it could be 1 of 2 things, either the front oxygen sensor needs replacement or the transmission is going. I was wondering if since the speedometer isn't working if its just a tell tale sign that its the transmission and not the sensor. Please give me an answer ASAP.

Well, a broken speedometer can mean typically one of two things.

First, the actual gauge could be broken. If this is the case, it may be possible to replace just the gauge if you order an OE gauge, but more commonly, the cluster is a complete assembly and must be replaced all at once. The cluster itself, depending on complication may be rather expensive, but the real cost comes in the labor of disassembling the dash to get at the cluster.

The second option is that your vehicle speed sensor is bad or there is a problem on the line to the gauge. This can usually be acquired for a reasonable cost. The problem is in getting to it. It should be either mounted on the transmission case or the rear differential, but sometimes it can be almost inside the transmission and take a considerable amount of time to get to.

SOURCE: Code: P0133 - O2 Sensor Circuit Slow Response Bank 1 Sensor 1

is this a 4 or 6 cylinder?
if a 4 cylinder it will only have 2 o2 sensors
V6 will have 4 o2 senors which the sensor will be the right side of the engine first sensor.
1st sensor on exhaust, I recommend if you change one change all, as this will make the computer when it rechecks the system you have all clean/fast responding sensors.

if you have a slow response it means the sensor is dirty and not reading well, which is usually caused by minor misfires that the engine computer dismisses, so a tune up would be recommended too.

How many oxygen sensors are in a 2003 Saturn vue v6


2 x oxygen sensors --one after each cat converter
there are also 2 x heated oxygen sensors ( different operation and reporting system) that are before the cat converters or in the exhaust manifolds run the fault codes to find the faulty sensor and it probably isn't either o2 or ho2 sensors

How do I take the speedometer sensor off so I can replace it on the 2000 LW2 Saturn?


It depends, those cars are known for having instrument cluster issues. Need to have someone with a diagnostic scanner to check and see if the scanner gets a reading. If it doesnt, then it usually sets a check engine light code. After you remove the bolt on the speed sensor, usually an 8 or 10 mm bolt. It will pull right off. It is an electronic pulse generated sensor, no gears on it.

Check engine light is on and i got error code p1133. what is that?


Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1
- Vacuum leak
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1 harness is open or shorted
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) activity for 90 seconds after closed loop operation has begun. The PCM determines if the front HO2S is functioning properly by counting the number of HO2S-1 Lean/Rich (L/R) and Rich/Lean (R/L) switches.

If the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) determines that the front HO2S did not switch enough times, the PCM will set the P1133 code.

replace the o2 sensor

My check engie light came on then about a week or so later my speedometer stopped working on my 2000 ford ecsort


The Vehicle Speed Sensor is what tells the Speedometer how fast you are going. Have your check engine light scanned for the code that is set. Replace the Vehicle Speed Sensor if necessary.

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
Removal
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Disconnect the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) electrical connector.
  3. Unclip the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) wire clip from the VSS bracket.
  4. Remove the VSS retaining bolt.
  5. Remove the VSS.
Installation
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
