This is your O2 sensor and is located after the air filter so check your air filter it may need to be replaced it is not getting the correct amount of air
the other code it is private for the ford dealer only but it may go out once you fix the air sensor

Error code P1131 & P1151


Hope this helps you or future parties of intrest. P1131 Lack of Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor Switch - Sensor Indicates Lean - Bank No. 1 P1151 Lack of Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor Switch - Sensor Indicates Lean - Bank No. 2 I would get under your stang and gently clean outside portion of o2 sensors using a scotch brite. Also if you have so dielectric grease pull electrical connections to o2 sensors clean them and add grease. These trick eliminated the o2 sensor OBD1 codes on my 1987 Ford mustang gt

Code p11311


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
P1131 Code Causes
  • The P1131 code can be initiated due to a bad fuel injector, a slow sensor or a vacuum leak. Generally, the P1131 code is triggered by a faulty or failing sensor.

I Have 7 codes on my 2000 Ford Taraus PO743, PO750, PO755, PO760, PO442, PO133, P1131. Would you be able to tell me what those problems are?


P0743 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Electrical
P0750 Shift Solenoid A
P0755 Shift Solenoid B
P0760 Shift Solenoid C
P0442 Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)
P0133 O2 Sensor Circuit Slow Response - Bank 1 Sensor 1
P1131 Lack of Upstream Heated Oxygen Sensor Switch -Sensor Indicates Lean -Bank 1

The transmission has a problem with shifting, and the evaporative emission system has a small leak, the O2 sensor has a problem on Bank 1 Sensor 1 either in the sensor or wiring.

Wat is code P0133 and P1131


P0133 - Oxygen Sensor Circuit Slow Response (Bank1, Sensor1)

This involves the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. This code indicates the engine air fuel ratio is not being adjusted by the oxygen sensor signal or the ECM as expected to do so, or not adjusted as often as expected to do so once the engine is warmed or under normal engine use.

Symptoms: You will likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms.

Causes: A code P0133 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* The oxygen sensor is faulty
* The wiring to the sensor is broken / frayed
* There is an exhaust leak

Possible Solutions: The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If the code comes back, the problem is more than likely the front Bank 1 oxygen sensor. You will likely wind up replacing it but you should also consider these possible solutions:
* Check and fix any exhaust leaks
* Check for wiring problems (shorted, frayed wires)
* Check the frequency and amplitude of the oxygen sensor (advanced)
* Check for a deteriorating / contaminated oxygen sensor, replace if necessary
* Check for inlet air leaks
* Check the MAF sensor for proper operation


P1131 Here's the bulletin, this TSB article is being republished in its entirety to update the Service Procedure.

-----------------------------------------------------
FORD: 1997-98 EXPEDITION, F-150, F-250 LD
LINCOLN: 1998 NAVIGATOR

ISSUE:
The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) may illuminate and Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0133, P0171 and/or P1131 may be stored in memory. Additionally, there may be one or more of the following driveability symptoms:

Hesitation
Stumble
Surge
Miss
Rough idle
Near stall or stall at idle
Detonation on acceleration
This may be caused by cold condensate from the A/C system dripping onto the Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen (HEGO) sensor causing thermocycling of the HEGO sensor .

ACTION:
Divert water from dripping onto the sensor by installing a fabricated drain tube to the end of the A/C drain. This should reroute the water and reduce the possibility of the above conditions occurring. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
Fabricate a drain tube from PCV Vent Tube (F85Z-6758-BA). To create the drain tube extension, remove the rubber cylinder from the plastic tube and discard. Cut the plastic tube (Figure 1).

Remove the transmission fluid level indicator.
Remove the right front wheel.
Remove the right front fender well splash guard.
Clean the area around the transmission filler tube and then remove the tube. Be sure to cover the hole using duct tape (or equivalent) to prevent contaminants from entering the transmission.
Replace the right front HEGO Sensor (F88Z-9F472-AB) and leave the connector disconnected.
Modify the PCV vent tube (Figure 1) to make a drain for the A/C condensate drain.
Using needle nose pliers or equivalent, stretch the drain tube elbow fitting for ease of installation.
Refer to Figure 1 and fabricate a tool using a 61x2.5 cm (24x1") I.D. pipe as shown.
Lubricate the elbow with water.
NOTE: DO NOT USE SILICONE TO LUBRICATE THE ELBOW AS IT WILL FALL OFF.

Using the tool, install the modified drain tube at the 7:00 position toward the frame (Figure 2).
Clean the transmission filler tube.
NOTE: BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE O-RING AS THIS COULD CREATE LEAKS OR ALLOW CONTAMINATION INTO THE TRANSMISSION.

Lightly lubricate the transmission filler tube O-ring with petroleum jelly and reinstall the tube into the transmission.
Torque the bolt to 11-14 N-m (8-10 lb-ft).
NOTE: MAKE SURE THE BODY SIDE HEGO WIRING CONNECTOR IS IN THE LOCATOR HOLE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD.

Connect the right front HEGO sensor connector.
Start the vehicle and verify water flow direction. Make sure no condensation drips onto the exhaust manifold bolt.
Reinstall the right front splash guard.
Reinstall the right front wheel.
Clean and reinstall the transmission fluid level indicator.
NOTE: DEALERS MUST ALSO PERFORM TSB 97-26-19 TO REPROGRAM THE POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE (PCM).

Obd code p0133 and p01131


P1131 bank 1 indicates the fuel/air ratio is correcting rich for an overly lean condition.
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0133 and P0153 indicates the response rate of the upstream HO2S(s) is below some calibrated window. The test measures the HO2S amplitude and output frequency. This is accomplished by superimposing a 1.5 to 2.5 Hz square wave over Lambse. The HO2S switching is monitored during this time to see if the calibration limit is met. P0133 is also bank 1.
Although these codes could be caused by several things such as vacuum leaks,fuel contamination,exhaust leaks,miss-fires,etc. Since it is localized on only bank one I would replace that front(upper in the exhaust to back cylinder head) 02 sensor and see if that did not correct my concern.

P0401. P0133, P1131- emmision test


Based on what the tech manuals say I would change the DPFE sensor for the EGR Valve, careful not to tear the special silicone rubber hoses that go to it from the exhaust, as a Ford dealer tech I saw these codes allot, and the DPFE sensor was almost always the issue or the hoses going to it.
