SOURCE: PO137, PO 138 codes
well on my car these are reffering to the sensors in the exhaust, the upstream sensor(before the cat) and the downstream sensor(after the cat) the downstream sensor can act up if it is lazy or sluggish, or due to a bad catalytic converter or a clogged one. however there are sensors on the exhaust manifold which are determined by driver side or passenger,my opinion is to get a scanner for about $100 to $150 and you can figure out many of these codes yourself.

Changing Spark Plugs
First off, on this model you don't have plug wires, you have coil packs with a boot and coil connected to the pack. The boot slides on the tops of the spark plug. The good thing about this is that you don't have to mark each wire to its location.
So to replace the plugs you need to disconnect the electrical connector to the coil pack and then unbolt the two bolts that mount the pack down, then remove the pack.
Next with a ratchet, an extension and a special spark plug socket, which has an insulator inside to protect the porcelain from getting cracked, remove the spark plugs.
Next step is to replace the plug, usually I slide off the boot from the coil pack and then remove the coil from inside the boot and slide the boot over the spark plug and start to thread the plug back in. Using this method allows to you feel if you are threading the plug in right. Then with a torque wrench you would torque the spark plug to the specs for the type of engine you have.
3.2/3.5L Engine (20 ft-lbs)
2.7L Engine (13 ft-lbs)
Next reinstall the coil pack with the two mounting bolts, it is only necessary to hand tigthen the two bolts. Then plug back in the electrical connector and continue this process on the next 5 spark plugs.
Changing Dome Light
To remove the map light bulbs you need to first remove the overhead console.
To do this you need to remove the screw at the front of the overhead console (which is more towards the front windshield).
Next you need to pry down on the rear of the overhead console and then disconnect the electrical connectors.
Then, with the overhead console pulled down, pull of the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.
Installation is the reverse of the removal process.

ok means that you dont have spark plug explotion on 1 or more cylinders and that means miss fire.
Disconnect the battery like 20 or 30 min and then connect the battery again and start the car, then drive and scan again, if you have same code you can do this:
1. take off your O2 sensor and test check if there is wrong change it because maybe that is the problem of all!
2. take off your spark plugs and put new ones.
if not work... do this.
reset your ecu (like I say before)
take your ignition coil #6 and change the place with another one on the same head side.
assambly and go to test if the DTC change like hummm example: Ignition coil #4 then or any other, then you know that the problem is your ignition coil.
if not work this... do this..
take off your ignition coil from the spark plug but still plug to the harnes (the ignition that is failing) and then take the ignition coil closer to Ground (another metal) and then start the car you need to see how the elctricity (not know how to say) "energy" jumps from the coil to the graund many times
if not are any energy jump you need to do this...
check the harnes like maybe that is the problem the question here is do you have voltage in the harness?
hope this help you.
