The oxygen sensor is located in the exhaust right before the catalytic converter. It is a 3-wire type sensor. You will need to use an oxygen sensor to get it out, and a handy tip is to spray it with some penetrating liquid, then let it soak for 20 minutes before removal.

What does the code P0142 mean?


P0141 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

The oxygen sensor screws into the exhaust and the sensor end protrudes into the pipe so that exhaust gases pass across the sensors internal element. There is a steel shielding with slots that direct exhaust flow across the actual element. As a note, oxygen sensors used to determine engine fuel ratios are always located in front of the catalytic converter. The sensors behind the cats are called monitors and we will discuss these later. Sensors are normally described with the prefix HO2S meaning Heated Oxygen Sensor and followed with bank and position number. For example HO2S11 would be the oxygen sensor on bank 1 and first in line (pre catalytic converter) and HO2S12 would be on bank 1, but second in line (the monitor) An oxygen sensor creates a voltage between 0 and 1 volt by means of a chemical reaction between the sensor element and the oxygen in the exhaust passing across that element. Outside air also passes through the sensor and it is a comparison between the oxygen content in the exhaust and fresh air that actually determines voltage output (information for trivial purposes only and for curious techs). Believe it or not, the fresh air on many sensors actually travels through the wiring insulation! Anyway, a voltage closer to one volt indicates a rich condition and closer to zero indicates lean. The computer uses this valve to constantly adjust fuel trim to maintain a 14.7:1 air fuel ratio.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

Code 51 on a Plymouth sun dance. How do I fix it?


Code 51 = Oxygen sensor stuck in lean mixture mode. ( this will often cause engine to run rich due to oxygen sensor telling engine controller that it is running lean, thus send more fuel) This may be caused by M.A.P. sensor as well, so check vacuum lines and clean connections on MAP sensor first. It should be one of 2 things, Fault from MAP sensor, or faulty oxygen sensor.

Changed 5.7 350 motor in 87 chevy k5 blazer with same from 90 caprice, motor's only mod. was using throttle body from previous motor. Full tune up but from 35mph to 45mph it lacks power and drinks gas...


If you are set on using this engine for its increased power and fuel efficiency, the only way you will realize these benefits is by changing the ECM/PCM from the engine donor vehicle to yours, put the 90 model engine's throttle body back on it, use the engine wire harness from the donor vehicle--in other words, the engine has to think it's still in the Caprice, and the only way to do this is to put the Caprice electronics and fuel management system (throttle body) back on it. If you have to modify the throttle linkage, the kick-down/TV cable, to make it work, then do it. Also, you will have to put an Oxygen sensor from a 90 Caprice into the manifold/collector/crossover pipe of your vehicle, and not one for the 87 truck. If it wont fit, plug the factory hole on your truck's Oxygen sensor location with a threaded plug using high-temp thread sealant, cut/weld in a proper-threaded orifice for the Oxygen sensor from a 90 Caprice. If the Caprice had two Oxygen sensors, you will have to put one on each cyclinder bank's exhaust outputs.
Swaps such as these are great if all the details are attended to, but headaches if you just try to throw and go.
If you do all this, the codes will not come back after you reset them, the engine will run great, you will have better power and greater fuel economy (the Caprice and the Blazer weigh within a couple hundred pounds of each other), and you will have a 1987 K5 Blazer which "thinks" it's a 1990 Caprice.
And remember when buying engine parts in the future to tell the counter guy "It's for my other car--the 1990 Caprice."
You get less **** out them that way.

Audi 80 not starting 95% of the time


since the car is so old i would suggest you hitting up your local salvage yard and buying the model and mass airflow meter you can get all this stuff for $20-30 if you remove it yourself , also buy you a audi service manual at parts house for $15 will show you were this stuff is located. its not the technical way of doing diagnosis but if you cant afford a diagnosis? tyr repacing the stuff that could cause the problem you might get lucky? the fuel injectors will have to be proffesionally installed with new orings ?

Starts ok lst time, then if shut off and started again in about 5 minutes it acts like it is not getting enough fuel. I do not have a gas pressure guage. I am buckholz1 password e6df2. thank you Jean


a good starting point would be to locate the fuel pressure regulator. after you try to start it pull the rubber hose leading to the regulator if ANYTHING drips out of the hose, you need a new regulator, cheap and easy. Just a starting point

The 1987-90 Jeep Cherokee with the Renix Eletronic Engine controls take somewhere between 4-7 revolutions before the computer has enough information to get the engine started.

If it takes longe rthan that, it may be time for a full tune-up:
Distibutor Cap and rotor
Spark plugs
Spark Plug wires
Fuel filter
Air filter
and possibly an oxygen sensor
