An o2 sensor won't cause a no start issue. I'm praying your anti-freeze mixture was correct that day though.

Trouble codeP1491,P0132,P0135 on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 What does this mean?


P1491-This code is for the radiator fan control relay circuit.
This can be caused by bad wiring, a faulty fan, a bad thermostat and even a bad pcm. Most likely it is a wiring issue.
P0132 This involves the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. This code indicates that the heated oxygen sensor reading is too high.
P0135 This code refers to the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. The heated circuit in the oxygen sensor decreases time needed to enter closed loop.
As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0135. You need a new Bank 1 sensor 1 O2 sensor !

Why does my 2002 rendezvous not start if temp outside is below zero it cranks just wont run leave it until warmer end of day and starts right up.


Sounds like a bad temperature sensor to me. Temp sensors on newer cars tell the PCM to send more fuel on a cold start. If its malfunctioning then the PCM doesn't up the fuel. This fuel boost acts like the choke on an older vehicle

The truck stalled out when driving. Sounds like it wants to start, but won't fire. Codes found - P0410, P0128, P0141, P0102. Please help. Daughter's truck and she leaves for college in a few days.


code p0410 refers to secondary injection system--malfunction===causes wiring--air valve--air solenoid--- ECM
code p0141 refers to heated oxygen sensor-2 bank1-heater control -circuit malfunction===causes --wiring--oxygen sensor--ECM
code p0128 refers to coolant thermostat --coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature==causes mechanical fault (thermostat stuck open)
code p0102 refers to mass air flow (MAF) sensor/ volume air flow (VAF) sensor low input===causes wiring short to ground--MAF/VAF sensor ECM

What could cause a 1994 Chevy beretta not to start


a bad engine coolant temperature sensor will cause cold no start conditions.your coolant sensor main sensor during cold start condition because when engine coolant cold PCM will cause rich fuel mixture for cold start up when engine coolant and oxygen sensor warms up cause engine goo in close loop lean mixture.but coolant sensor is the main information sensor if bad it will cause many problems.

Would a bad oxygen sensor on a 97 ford taurus prevent acceleration randomly? sometime i stop at a red light then it wont accelerate past 20 or if i am at a constant speed of 55 for a while it will start...


When you start your car the computer needs time to calibrate. That means set a base level for all components. I would recommend that whenever you start your car be sure that the tachometer has dropped below 1 before proceeding. Also it is a good idea to not have any other accessories running while warming up (e.g. radio, blower).
Your computer starts to gather O2 readings after you have driven over 10 mph for 30 seconds. Your O2 sensor is starting to give out and giving your computer wrong voltages, this means that when you press the gas your computer cannot calculate the correct air/fuel ratio. The symptoms you are having are no doubt the cause of the bad O2 sensor, I would recommend you buy one on Ebay ~$45.
