  • cwgempel May 15, 2009

    i need to do a little more research because my car has long tube ****** headers instead of stock exhaust and it may need different o2 sensors .

Ahhh....I see. Well, there is a front and a rear sensor, and the car will almost have to be up on a rack. Even then there will be some jockeying. Personally, I would look at buying the sensors myself and going to a muffler shop to get them put in. You might be able to find the rear one after it's cool, but you'll need a special slotted socket to allow the sensor wires to fit in it so they don't break when installing.

You can find those for about $20.

    That's true, there are universal O2 sensors that will work. It may be the way to go. But researching it will tell. Wish I could have helped more.

I'd be looking for a few things there. First, make sure that the temperature sender is working. If not, the computer thinks the engine is always cold so it sends more fuel even though it's not needed. Next, make sure that there aren't any exhaust leaks ahead of the O2 sensor. That will cause the sensor to think that the actual mixture is lean, again asking for more fuel. Also check that the O2 sensor is good. Out of range can do the same thing. There are other more complicated causes but those are the most common.

1997 camaro z28 fan isnt coming on, coolant is coming out of the radiator cap.. when i drive fast the car runs cool but when i drive slow it starts to overheat, what is my problem

the car is heated at low speed because less air flows at high speed and does not heat because the air flows more, check if the fan is turning on and check if you have good revolution,, check fuses, check the thermostat temperature, clean radiator use antifreeze coolant and finally check the pulley on the water pump with its setting correct ajustment. and finally if you work on the motor over time, verify that the ignition times are in place,

The low coolant level light keeps coming on on my 1995 camaro z28. I have replaced the radiator, thermostat, and coolant level sensor. That I know of, there are no leaks. What do I do?

Replace the low coolant sensor right side if radiator. When you replaced the radiator
they may have installed the old sensor.

I had the same problem.

I have a 2002 Z28 Camaro that I am currently trying to get to pass emissions inspection. I have just replace both upstream O2 sensors, and I am still getting a P1133 code. I cant figure out the problem,...

P1133 - Insufficient Switching on a Pre-Cat sensor, Bank 1 Sensor 1
Is the exhaust stock? or do you have long tube headers?? The long tube headers cause the heat-up time on the o2s to be longer (causing the switch time to take longer (p0133/p0155)).

Otherwise - insufficient switching of the o2...exhaust leak possibly near the sensor... sometimes a blown head gasket can cause this code too.
