Question about 1992 Saturn SL2

1 Answer

Air Fuel Ratio Senor

I cannot find one is my problem! The books call it an Air fuel ratio sensor. I bought one from the Saturn dealership years ago, and now nobody knows what i'm talking about and I've bought all the other sensors. Some were to fat and others had the wrong pig tail on them. Where can I but Saturn specific parts. They had to have sold their stock to somebody! Right?

SOURCE: air flow and fuel sensors replaced recently, crank

NO. Find a shop that knows what they are doing, stay away form chain stores.

You don't. All modern vehicles are computer controlled with an OBD1 (1995 and older) or OBD 2 (1996 and newer) computer. If the fuel to air ratio is off it will set a code

My 05 Altima 3.5L popped up ABS, O2sensor, P1800 &P1273 frm the Auto Scan what do these mean & how to fix them?


P1800 is the VIAS system. Most likely the intake runner control vacuum actuator is defective. Where did you get the ABS info?
P1273 NISSAN - Air Fuel Ratio Sensor 1 Bank 1 Lean Shift Monitoring.
Possible causes - Faulty Air fuel ratio (A/F) Sensor 1 Bank 1
-Intake manifold or vacuum hose leaking (check this first)
- Air fuel ratio (A/F) Sensor 1 Bank 1 harness is open or shorted
- Air fuel ratio (A/F) Sensor 1 Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Fuel pressure
- Faulty Fuel injector
- Faulty Air Flow Meter
If all seems ok then replace the cylinder bank number one O2 sensor and the bank two sensor, replacing only one sensor can lead to another check engine light. These are the sensors before the catalytic converter.

How fixed p 1148 nissan armada 2008


It may be a faulty oxygen sensor.
For Models 2005 and up:
- Faulty Air Fuel Ratio Sensor 1 Bank 1
- Air Fuel Ratio Sensor 1 Bank 1 circuit is open or shorted
- Air Fuel Ratio Sensor 1 Bank 1 circuit electrical connection

Before you rush off to buy replacement parts it's worth giving a mobile mechanic a call. Those guys are usually very good and far cheaper than a dealership. And a second opinion is worth paying for.

What is the code 171 mean on my dodge ram 1500


P0171 Chrysler - Fuel System Lean

Possible causes
- Intake air leaks
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
- Incorrect Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose connection

Tech notes
If the P0171 is combined with the P0174 code, it's very likely that the problem is caused by an intake leak. If there are no intake leaks, the next step is to replaced the air filter and clean the air flow meter. If the problem persist the front oxygen (O2) sensor may need to be replaced.

When is the code detected?
- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too small. (The mixture ratio is too lean.)

Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Excessive Fuel Consumption


P0171 Chrysler Description
With the Air/Fuel Mixture Ratio Self-Learning Control, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The Engine Control Module (ECM) calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios.

In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the ECM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) (2 trip detection logic).

P0174 FORD - Fuel Injection System Too lean Bank 2xicon.jpghttp://engine-codes.com/p0174_ford.htmlForum CodePossible causes- Intake air leaks

- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
- Incorrect Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose connection Tech notes The codes is usually set when there is an intake leak after the air flow meter, before replacing any parts check for loose or broken hoses and intake gasket leak. On Ford some models dirty air filter, and dirty or faulty air flow sensor are the cause of the problem.

It's a very common problem for the Ford Windstar. Here a link to a web site with information how to repair:

Is the ECU of the Lexus 600 hl capable of adjusting the air/fuel ratio when using better fuel? Or are the air/fuel ratio's programmed as a fixed ratio? And therefore better fuel will not lead to i


There are different octane levels of fuel & different
manufactures use different additives,some of which are
required seasonally by federal & state regulations.

You can study the various fuel ratings,there is more
to it then just octane but there is no such thing a
better fuel.

You use what is recommended in your owners manual
& may be on a sticker on the fuel door


The O2 Sensors report oxygen content in the exhaust
converter & that is a main component to adjusting fuel
trim thus the ratios you refer to. The PCM,ECM,ECU etc
won't have a way to know the fuel chemistry


There are hundreds of somewhat fixed parameters in
a vehicles computer & it does try for a ratio on the air
fuel,but that is constantly moving as you have different
engine load as you drive.


The day you drive off the dealers lot with a new car
is is all down hill,no way to improve efficiency because
the engine wears & piston & valve carbon up etc.


Doing any excessive amount of preventative maintenance
over the years is all you can do.


Full Synthetic Oil -changed no more than every4000 miles
New Spark Plugs--every three years (No such thing as a Tune-Up
they left 25 years ago)
No vacuum Leaks
PCV Valve -never needs to be replaced, ever --clean it if you want
You can make you list as long as you want

You need to be working on all vehicles 3 or 4 times a year
You don't wait for break down issues you need to be proactive
& continually learning

If you want anything done correctly==you have to do it yourself

Air sensor check engine light


Ok as a guess that you have a SUV and you have different air faults. if you are a DYI'er go to an auto parts store and get an error code tool. Harbor freight for $30-50. Hook it to the car and find out which sensor is it calling for. Note, you can reset the check engine light on most tools that are not the cheapest.

I have a code reader and the code is P0171 P0174 System too lean. what makes the system too lean?


P0171 - Fuel Injection System Too Lean Bank 1
Possible Causes:
- Intake air leaks
- Front Heated oxygen sensor may be faulty
- Injectors may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Mass air flow sensor may be faulty
- Incorrect PCV hose connection

P0174 - Fuel Injection System Too Lean Bank 2
Possible Causes:
- Intake air leaks
- Front Heated oxygen sensor may be faulty
- Injectors may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Lack of fuel
- Mass air flow sensor may be faulty
- Incorrect PCV hose connection

What Causes These Codes: Fuel injection system does not operate properly. The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too large. (The mixture ratio is too rich.) The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the engine Air/Fuel mixture ratio, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The PCM calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios. In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the PCM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the engine light. The codes is usually set when there is an intake leak after the air flow meter, before replacing any parts check for loose or broken hoses and intake gasket leak. On Ford some models dirty air filter, and dirty or faulty air flow sensor are the cause of the problem.
