Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. What codes were found to tell you the O2 sensor was bad? Remember there are more than one on your truck. If the underlying problem is not addressed the light will come back on. Excessive oil or engine coolant getting on the sensor can make it fail.

It sounds like your oxygen sensor is bad. Try unplugging it and see if the engine runs better. If it does then replace the sensor. This would be the oxygen sensor after the engine before the cat.

My engine light only comes on sometimes. I took to get inspected today and it read code P0133. What is this and how am I going to pay to get this fixed?

PO133 indicates that your front oxygen sensor is not controlling the engine properly .. thats usually a bad oxygen sensor .... in some cars thats easy to change. you could do it if you have any mechanical abilities .. in other cars its nearly impossible, it takes special tools and patients beyond human .. hopefully yours is one of the easy ones .. the part itself might be less than a hundred bucks at an auto parts store but more than that at a dealership . other things that can cause this ... if the wires going to the oxygen sensor are damaged .. and if there is a significant exhaust leak (you should hear that) .. usually changing the oxygen sensor will fix the problem has wires going to it and it screws into the exhaust system somewhere between the engine and the catalytic converter. if you give your auto parts store the make, model, year and engine size of your car then they can probably show you where to find the sensor .. if you are not mechanically inclined then find a mechanic with a good reputation forget lowest price .. i find that often the auto parts store can recommend someone if you ask ..

Check engine light on, replaced oxygen sensor before catalyst,

  • Water or corrosion in the connector
  • Loose terminals in the connector
  • Wiring burnt on exhaust components
  • Open or short in the wiring due to rubbing on engine components
  • Holes in exhaust allowing unmetered oxygen into exhaust system
  • Unmetered vacuum leak at the engine
  • Bad o2 sensor
  • Bad PCM

1998 Saturn SL2 engine light

Possible Causes
The following are malfunctions that could cause a rich condition:
^ Fuel pressure too high. Perform fuel pressure test.
^ Leaking fuel injector(s). - Perform pressure leak down test.
^ Vacuum leak around the MAP sensor grommet.
^ Oxygen sensor contamination.
^ Restricted exhaust or air intake.
^ Fuel Vapor Canister saturated with fuel.

If the front oxygen reading voltage is above 600 mV and the rear HO2S is above 600 mV all the time, the O2 sensors are probably not
at fault.

O2 Sensors

Autozone oxygen sensors do not function properly in Toyota vehicles. Just had a Tacoma yesterday with the same issue. New sensors, runs poor, check engine light on. Toyota sensors fixed it right now.

2000 dodge intrepid 3.2 engine light on yesterday, code PO432, should I replace the upper oxygen sensor?

this is the code for catalytic convertor efficiency. if you decide to change the 02 sensor change both of the sensors for the left head...there is a good chance the convertor is going bad also depending on the miles
