Question about 1998 Saturn SL
Failed insp. fault code po133 02 sensor slow response (bank 1 sensor 1)
It means that the O2 sensor isn't switching as fast as it should. Make sure there are no vacuum or exhaust leaks. Most Likely you got a lazy O2 sensors which would require replacement.

yes i would recommend replacing the o2 sensor, 9 times out of 10 it will correct the problem and they usually aren't too expensive for the saturn's

sounds like a dirty mass air flow sensor.if you have in deed replaced it i would check the voltage going to the sensor.perhaps its a faulty connection between the power controle module and the sensor socket.if that dosent work i have a few more tricks to try get back to me and i will help further. email@example.com

is this a 4 or 6 cylinder?
if a 4 cylinder it will only have 2 o2 sensors
V6 will have 4 o2 senors which the sensor will be the right side of the engine first sensor.
1st sensor on exhaust, I recommend if you change one change all, as this will make the computer when it rechecks the system you have all clean/fast responding sensors.
if you have a slow response it means the sensor is dirty and not reading well, which is usually caused by minor misfires that the engine computer dismisses, so a tune up would be recommended too.

P1133 is a slow 02 sensor or a shorted to ground at the PCM to 02 sensor signal. If the 02 sensor does not cycle fast enought it is called a lazy 02 sensor, the only way to test for this is with a digital volt meter or a scanner. if it will not pulse fast enough it will throw the code so Replace the 02 senor on the driver side bank. Bank one. then clear the codes. The code is thrown do to seveal reasons the 02 sensor could be dirty or it just could be worn out, you could pull it and clean it and try it again or just replace it and be done with it. The cost of a heated 02 sensor is $50.00 at a auto parts store or the dealer might charge a little higher but the cost in savings of fuel is well worth it.

Trouble Code: P0134
HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) No Activity Detected
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, engine running in closed loop at a speed over 3 mph for more than 2 minutes, and the PCM detected the HO2S signal stroke rationality was more than the threshold value (0.250 volt) during the Heated Oxygen Sensor Monitor test.
HO2S signal circuit is open or shorted to ground.HO2S has deteriorated, is contaminated or has failed.PCM has failed.YOUR HO2S SENSOR IS BAD,IT COST 80.00,USE EXACT FIT PART.EASY TO REMOVE,DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR,GET WRENCH AND REMOVE.5 MINUTES TO DO.Trouble Code: P0336
Crankshaft Position Sensor Performance
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine running and the PCM detected the number of CKP sensor signals counted (between the reference mark gap). did not equal the Actual number of available teeth (i.e., the CKP signals. were out or the normal window" of operation with the CMP sensor. signals okay).
CKP sensor signal circuit connections loose (intermittent fault).CKP sensor wiring harness has a connection fault (intermittent).CKP to Target Wheel "air gap" is incorrect.CKP sensor is damaged or has failed.Must remove to see.Trouble Code: P0440
EVAP System Malfunction
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, ECT sensor signal less than158?F at startup, IAT sensor signal more than 9.5?F, system voltage over 10.0 volts engine runtime 15-20 minutes at cruise speed, then returned to idle speed, VSS indicating 0 mph, load value 2.2 ms, canister load factor less than 4.0, fuel tank pressure less than 0.5" Hg, then after the Idle Control system and Fuel Trim had stabilized, the PCM detected a fuel vapor leak (as small as 0.040") in the EVAP system during the EVAP Leak Test.
Fuel filler cap damaged, cross-threaded or loosely installed.Small hoses or cuts present in the EVAP vapor hoses/lines.EVAP purge valve is damaged or has failed.Here you are the symptons.
