SOURCE: O2 Sensor defect

MR988905 costs $300+

SNG O2 sensor is just below $100

they may claim being made with the same quality and both are tagged "direct fit" for easy installation.

its just my idea, good luck.

SOURCE: 01 Eclipse GT - bad o2 sensor heater circuit (bank 1 sensor 2)

Your question was truncated. I see that the bad sensor is on bank 1, but I can not see if it is the upstream (sensor 1) or downstream (sensor 2) sensor. The upstream sensors are mounted in the exhaust manifolds (look sort of like spark plugs) and have wires going to them.
You will need a 7/8" or 22mm wrench to remove the sensor (after disconnecting the wires). If your car has over 70,000 miles I STRONGLY suggest that you replace BOTH upstream sensors. One in each exhaust manifold.

replace the O2 sensor for cylinder bank #2, that is the sensor before the catalytic converter, bank 2 is the back across from the bank that # 1 cylinder is in, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and see if that clears the problem. see photo of engine banks

What do po155 mean?


Assuming you mean p0155 obd code is an o2 sensor heater circuit fault this could be the heater in the o2 sensor itself check for continuity or it could be a short in the wiring harness. Clear the code and see if it comes back! If you have done more than 100k miles in your car the o2 sensor is most likely due for replacement. best to confirm the fault first

1998 nissan altima trouble code p0135


The code P0135 means O2 sensor heater circuit malfunction bank 1 sensor 1. This means you most likely have a bad O2 sensor. The possible causes are:

TT - Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit fuse
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit open shorted to ground
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) Usually the code indicates a bad Oxygen sensor, but an intake vacuum leak or a failing fuel pump can cause the code, so check your intake vacuum hose for a leak or hole. But most likely, you have a faulty Oxygen sensor. Now Bank 1 Sensor 1 means the bad O2 sensor is the one on the number one cylinder side (which is the cylinder closest to the timing belt or where all your belts and pulleys are),which is bank one. If you look really closely, you will see that the number 1 cylinder is just a little bit closer to the belts than the number 2 cylinder. Now that you know which side you are dealing with, the next step is which sensor. There are two O2 sensors on each side (upstream or downstream), four total. Sensor 1 is the upstream sensor, which is before the catalytic converter closest to the exhaust manifold. Number 2 sensor is on or after the catalytic converter. So in short, you are replacing the O2 sensor on the Number 1 cylinder side before the catalytic converter. They are a pain to remove. Get some Pb Blaster lubricating oil and spray on the threads and let sit for 10 minutes and spray it again. You will need a 7/8 Oxygen sensor removal socket to remove it. Don't forget to disconnect negative battery terminal and O2 wire harness first.. Any questions please feel free to email me. Good luck.

I have a 2004 Dodge 1500 5.7L Hemi 4WD that is throwing a P0135 Code. Can anyone please explain how to find and repair the issue? I have already replaced the 1/1 O2 sensor thinking it was a bad O2 sensor.


Here's a link to your code.It's screw into bank one on exhaust manifold.Here's a link to your firing order,it shows cylinder one(bank1)is on driver side which means it's the oxygen sensor on that side exhaust manifold.Here's the part.Easy to remove,disconnect connector,get open end wrench and remove.

Oxygen sensor, how do you replace it


Hi John:
According woth the repair manual, this is the procedure about OXYGEN (O2) SENSOR:
The O2 sensor is located in the right exhaust downpipe below the exhaust manifold flange (Fig. 18).


REMOVAL
WARNING: THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD BECOMES VERY HOT DURING ENGINE OPERATION. ALLOW ENGINE TO COOL BEFORE REMOVING OXYGEN SENSOR.
(1) Raise and support the vehicle.
(2) Disconnect the wire connector from the O2 sensor.


CAUTION: When disconnecting the sensor electrical
connector, do not pull directly on wire going into sensor.
(3) Remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust manifold.


INSTALLATION
Threads of new oxygen sensors are factory coated with anti-seize compound to aid in removal. DO NOT add any additional anti-seize compound to the threads of a new oxygen sensor.
(1) Install the O2 sensor into the exhaust manifold. Tighten to 30 NIm (22 ft. lbs.) torque.
(2) Connect the O2 sensor wire connector.
(3) Lower the vehicle.

O2 SENSOR LOCATION


Hi Greg:
On 1995 GMC Truck Sonoma 4WD 4.3L TBI 6cyl the Oxygen Sensor is located under hood, driver side, lower engine area mounted in lower exhaust manifold at pipe flange.


1_12_2012_2_28_20_am.jpg

Fig.: Removing the oxygen sensor from the exhaust pipe

The sensor uses a permanently attached pigtail and connector. This pigtail should not be removed from the sensor. Damage or removal of the pigtail or connector could affect the proper operation of the sensor. Keep the electrical connector and louvered end of the sensor clean and free of grease. NEVER use cleaning solvents of any type on the sensor! The oxygen sensor may be difficult to remove when the temperature of the engine is below 120?F (49?C). Excessive force may damage the threads in the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

O2 sensor bank1 sensor 1 where is it located on 2004 Dodge Caravan


prev.gif next.gif Oxygen Sensor I think that bank1 sensor1 stands for the upstream o2 sensor vs. the sensor2 which is the downstream o2 sensor. Both the 4 cyl. and 6 cyl. employ 2 o2 sensors.

If you get it wrong, changing both might be a good idea.
Removal & Installation 2.4L Engine NOTE: These engines use 2 heated oxygen sensors.
Upstream HO2S1 To Remove:
NOTE: If the engine temperature is lower than 120 °F (48 °C), the HO2S1 sensor may be difficult to remove. Excessive force could possibly damage the threads in the exhaust manifold.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
  4. Using an oxygen sensor removal tool carefully remove the heated oxygen sensor.
To Install:
  1. Clean the threads in the exhaust manifold with an 18 mm X 1.5 + 6E tap.

Where is the oxygen sensor at and is it hard 2 get to


Most of these vehicles have 3, one on each exhaust pipe, left and right, and a third "downstream" just before the cat. converter. They screw into a "bung" (threaded nut) welded to the pipe. They kind of look like a spark plug with a wire, or 2, coming off of it that plugs into a harness near by. If you had the check engine light on the code usually tells you which one it is.
