You can't answer that kind of question. Have to have the vehicle,know the systems and follow a diagnostic tree to find the problem.

SOURCE: 2002 nissan maxima, check engine

About DTC P1800, I suggest check the harness and verify it is plugged in and still functioning. Also, try checking your vac tubes to verify that they are not reversed. Also read this TSB with details about correct diagnostic: DTC P1800 VIAS CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE

The VIAS control solenoid valve cuts the intake manifold vacuum signal for power valve control. It responds to ON/OFF signals from the ECM. When the solenoid is off, the vacuum signal from the intake manifold is cut. When the ECM sends an ON signal the coil pulls the plunger downward and feeds the vacuum signal to the power valve actuator.

DTC detecting condition:
• An excessively low or high voltage signal is sent to ECM through the valve
Possible cause:
• Harness or connectors (The solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted.)
• VIAS control solenoid valve

Will need replaced the solenoid valve (P/N - 149558J10A). The valve is located under the engine cover. It's a Nissan only part so you have to order from the dealer, either online or in person. It's cheaper online. Check this sample Nissan engine location (click image for zoom)...


DTC P1147 - Bank1 Sensor 2 O2 sensor maximum voltage monitoring
Component Description: The heated oxygen sensor 2, after three way catalyst, monitors the oxygen level in the exhaust gas on each bank.

Even if switching characteristics of the heated oxygen sensor 1 are shifted, the air fuel ratio is controlled to stoichiometric, by the signal from the heated oxygen sensor 2.

This sensor is made of ceramic zirconia. The zirconia generates voltage from approximately 1V in richer conditions to 0V in leaner conditions. Under normal conditions the heated oxygen sensor 2 is not used for engine control operation.

DTC detecting condition: The maximum voltage from the sensor is not reached to the specified voltage.

Possible cause:
Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted)
Heated oxygen sensor 2
Fuel pressure

Majority of cases this is either a faulty O2 sensor, or short/open in wiring harness. Bank1 sensor2 is the rear O2 sensor on the passenger (right) hand side (click image for zoom):


Here is simple test with voltmeter to test O2 sensor. If it fails test, replace sensor. If not, then you will have to start tracing the wiring harness for a short/open in it (click for zoom):


And here additional details: DTC P1147 O2 Sensor

Tracker idle problem

sure, when unplugged the MAF , the PCM goes to limp home
and mimics the dead or missing MAF.
one reason, of many
is the AFR is lean, with maf present
then you remove MAF and the mimic goes horrid rich. (normal effect)
this huge rich hides the true cause of horrid lean.

see? 2 wrongs, make a right in this case.

its a 97, why are you scan too free.
connect it and see it fail. and why?
see all sensors. here. same engine, same all.

air leaks on this engine cause, lean.
a dirty mAF causes, lean. (clean it with carb spray 1foot away never close up)
clogged injectors cause, lean.
low fuel pressure causes lean.

if you put all the parts back and scan it
you'd see that.
you'd see the 0xysensor (Front) stuck lean B1S1. bank 1 sensor 1
ignore B1S2.

try a new oxysensor front. first. so the scan tool can see true facts.

on a good engine, the 02 swings at idle
if that fails , i jump over that like at tick on a hound dog.
finding car parked and idling hot AFR issues, is easy with any scan too.
the EFI must be in closed loop at idle, hot, MUST.
is it>?
does the maf read right at idle, ?
1.5-4.0 grams per second
or MAF output pin volts of. 1.7-2.0 volts
if the voltage is good ITS NOT THE MAF, its LEAN AFR.

if you gun the throttle
the maf goes higher.
3v or 20grams/second.

here is me driving see MAF hit 55 grams/ a second.
Hills. do that.
the more HP the more Grams /per second, until max engine torque is hit. and RPM max HP.

here is live data plot of a 96 MAF

the blue line is THROTTLE ANGLE> im driving aggressive as heck.

if the maf tests good, its not the MAF>
its easy to test.

Bank 1 sensor malfuncatoin/lean fuel/slow to react

what engine, no engine size stated so i must generalize. (hard)
you got a CEL then pulled the DTC, bravo that.. well done!@
B1S1 or B1S2, posting the actual DTC wins here,
any other DTC'S or running symptoms?????????????????????
my guess is B1S1 , due to lean lookup. bank 1 sensor 1.
S1 is the keystone of engine fueling (at idle or steady cruise) .
It determines the final air and fuel air mixtures.

the sensor can be bad.?
or any cracks in the exhaust near it.????? (fresh air is 20% oxy)
or engine really is lean.
see , 2 logic reasons, sensor bad or good and is lean for real.

if car has 100k on it, its due, for a change, anywhy
so do that.
then if it comes back, then it real (no cracks)
why is my engine really real.
its lean for a large number of possible reasons...
1: low fuel pressure.
2: MAF stuck high, or if MAP car, map reading to high.
in simple English the air sensors are fibbing showing Low air when it really air.
the air sensors. are the prime sensors.
all fuel is injected based on them. (and temperatures)

3: air leaks, on MAP cars, it dont go lean only races.
3b: air leaks on MAF , causes lean conditions, (most modes)
on a maf based engine any induction leaks too big will cause
the B1S1 sensor to loose control at idle or low speed cruise,Hot)

there are other reasons.. many.
the above is basics.
let it be said, the engine that misfires, sends a slug of oxygen
to the sensors. and causes it to mess up.
this is the bad deal with all narrow band oxy sensors...
they dont see misfire. correctly.

what we do in a shop is see if we can wake up the sensor
(no cracks found in header)
(S1 is the PRE CAT sensor , one more way to say it)
we force the EFI rich, and scan and graph the S1.
how? , well there are 2 ways.
1: is add propane gas to the induction, (air cleaner works)
2: or force fuel pressure higher, on MAF cars, we pinch the vacuum
'hose to the Fuel pressure reg, this makes it go about 10psi higher.
now you know a trick. or two.
the o2 will go rich showing that it is alive. if not , its dead.
or has horrid levels of oxygen flowing by it.
(gross misfire, burned exhaust valves, gross induction air leaks., etc)

There is gas in the intake manifold of my 99 Silverado LS 1500 5.3?

Sounds like a stuck open injector to me. I think most if not all of those codes are ghosts caused by the computer trying to make sense of all that fuel. Plug the injectors in and bump the key and see if one is spurting fuel. Have a fire extinguisher ready, and aim the injectors into a bucket if you can.

The code P0137 means that your downstream O2 sensor has low volts. A rich running engine makes the voltage go high, not low. If the upstream sensor is not reading a rich or lean condition, then you need to replace your downstream O2 sensor.

PO121 code still on, replaced o2 sensors, replaced cracked air tube, put seafoam in gas. reset computer, light came back on after 40 miles. same codes. DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES PO171 System Too Lean...

PO121 : TP Sensor Performance = The PCM supplies 5V to the TP sensor(throttle position). The TP sensor is a variable resistor that drops the voltage to about 4 volts at WOT(wide open throttle) to less than 1 volt at closed throttle. Some TP sensors are adjustable. others have a learn procedure to determine closed throttle. PO171 Fuel Trim System Lean = In closed loop the PCM adjusts fuel delivery based on H2OS 1 readings and is indicated by long & short fuel trim values. If lean the PCM will add fuel (fuel trim above 0%) & if rich the PCM will reduce fuel(fuel trim below 0%) PO128 ECT Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature = possible failed thermostat, low or empty on coolant, Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, Poor connection/Harness/Wires, faulty PCM Connection. I think you hit the nail on the head , the ECT Sensor ( which is different than the temp sensor for the dash gauge)

Brand new O2's Same volt readings and CEL codes

check your air/fuel mixture. if you have a leak especially at your intake or injectors, it is taking in air, causing a lean air/fuel ratio which will make your o2 sensors out of wack. Also, if your injectors are leaking or your fuel pressure is low. Try checking these things to determine why your o2 sensors are low.

Codes 1133-0131-0171-0300

p1133 - o2 sensor, Insufficiant Switching, Bank 1 Sensor 1.
p0131 - o2 sensor circuit, low voltage, bank 1 sensor 1
p0171 - Lean condition, Bank 1
p0300 - Random Misfire

I would be looking at the front passenger side oxygen sensor for issues. It may be bad, it may not be plugged in, bad wiring at harness.

The random misfire may be symptomatic of the o2 sensor problem.

Oxygen sensor

O2 voltage should vary between about .10 volts and 1.0 volts with the engine in closed loop mode. low volts mean lean, high, rich, if the voltage is always low (<.20V) even when you goose the throttle chances are the O2 is done. Remember high/low voltage readings indicate lean rich conditions, a failed O2 has almost no drive symptom, just a check engine light.
