    I've had this code twice before. The first time I replaced the, way over specs old plugs, and it was OK for about a year. Then it reocurred and I replaced the PCV valve and tube which had a hole in it, and it went away. Now it's back, I've cleared it once and it's beaming at me again.

    Thanks man. I know it could be, but I'm hoping not because it's cold and snowy out and I know that thing's rusty and frozen in there. I'm hoping that there's a frequent, often seen cause on this model, like a vacuum leak right here or this other sensor?

    You mechanics, if something comes to mind that you see all the time, please tell me.

2002 Ford Mustang GT. I was driving and it made a bang noise and now I hear exhaust or air. check engine light is flashing codes P1131, P0303 and P1151. has anyone else had this problem

Did it blow the spark plug out of cylinder 3 ?
Code 303 is for a loss of power from cylinder 3, code 1131 is for a problem with the O2 sensor in bank one and code 1151 is for the same problem in bank two. Codes 1131 and 1151 could be caused by the problem source for code 303.

Shift solenoid p0750 c

Disconnect the transmission electrical connector and see if it starts. If it does you likely have shorted shift solenoid pack, if the no start remains the wiring harness may be defective.

Do you have a check engine light on? Have you done an engine control module fault code test (OBD2 control system), is fuel pressure OK under a load? Has the fuel injector spider manifold (inside the throttle bore) assembly been replaced, that is a known problem.

Sevice engine light stays on my 97 ford escort. Code reads" throttle/pedal postion sensor" changed throttle sensor but did not help

Has anyone try to adjust the screw on the throttle,,that looks like a idle adjustment..If so that is preset at the factory,,and should never be adjusted...If the throttle plate angle is out of ajustment,,you may have to take to the dealer to get it back to factory specs...When ever that is moved,,it changes the voltage ,,

How do you reset the service engine light?

Locate the diagnostic connector. On the 1997 Nissan Maxima the connector is located in the OBD2 standardized location under the driver-side dash, slightly to the right of the steering column. With the ignition key in the "OFF" position, plug the connector of the scan tool into the diagnostic connector of the car. Turn the ignition key to the run position but do not start the engine unless instructed to by the scan tool.

Turn the scan tool on and select "Global OBD2" from the main menu. Select "Diagnostic Trouble Codes" from the first sub-menu, and then "Read Trouble Codes" from the second sub-menu. Write down all listed codes and their descriptions before erasing them. This will save time if you must perform additional diagnostics.

Press the back button on the scan tool until the second sub-menu is displayed, and select "Erase Codes" or "Clear Codes," depending on the manufacturer of the scan tool. A message will appear asking you to confirm your desire to erase the codes and other stored data. Select "Yes". The scan tool will alert you when the codes have been erased.

Test drive the vehicle to verify the repair is complete. The 1997 Nissan Maxima on-board computer will run a series of tests on the systems in the vehicle, including emission control devices. To complete these tests you must take two test drives that include a variety of driving conditions, with a 2-minute cool-down between each test drive. If the service engine soon light does not come back on during these two test drives, you have completed the repairs and the reset.

Engine light came on,had it checked out,go engine codes 1131 and 1132,what do they mean on my 1999 ford escort?

Google code 1131 ford and read the story about Ford Mass air Flow sensors. It is posted by autotechrepair.suite101.
The code points to bad switching (oxygen sensor) but that is not really the problem. It is the MAF sensor
