Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

O2 sensor location 1997 pontiac grand am 2.4 4 cyl auto trans

I 'm reading trouble code... P0 134, o2 sensor, No Activity, bank 1 sensor 1....are there two sensors, one at the exhaust manifold and one by the catalytic converter? I see what appears to be one at the exhaust manifold right before the exhaust pipe connection.
Also reading....P0 171, system to lean, bank 1...I'm hoping this will clear when the o2 sensor is replaced.

    the sensor you will need to replace is the one by the manifold. and more than likely that lean code is from the bad o2

BANK 1 SENSOR 1 IS THE ONE IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. BANK 2 SENSOR 2 IS BELOW THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

P0171 SHOULD GO AWAY WITH A GOOD O2 SENSOR BUT DO CHECK FOR VACUUM LEAKS TO BE SURE. 3.1/3.4L ENGINES HAVE A BAD DESIGN INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET, THE LEAK OIL, COOLANT, AND AIR.

Does it give a misfire or just, system to rich? If it gives you a cylinder number trying switching a injector, if the code jumps to cyl where you swapped, replace injector.

P134, p0141, po300, po130 and po135. 2005 Sunfire.


Given that most of the trouble codes are for the O2 sensor, I think I would change it. The multiple misfires could be because of improper fuel/air mixture caused by a bad sensor. Disconnect the negative(-) battery terminal then change the sensor. Disconnecting the negative(-) should reset the computer and allow the fuel/air mixture to return to default allowing the engine to start.
P0130 - O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0134 - O2 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0135 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0141 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

Oxygen Sensors out on Pontiac Grand Am 2003 V6


Your car is equipped with a diagnostic system called OBD II. You can purchase a code reader and use it to find which O2 sensor is causing the problem. You probably have 4 sensors. 2 in front of the converter and 2 behind. The code reader will indicate something like "SEN 1 BANK 1." This means O2 sensor in front of the cat. on the side of the engine that contains cylinder 1. You may see "SEN 2 BANK 1" "SEN 1 BANCK 2" "SEN 2 BANK 2" Bank 2 indicates oppisite side of No.1 cylinder. Hope this helps
