Sounds like an injector issue, probably needs replacement, but find and install a can of Techrolene, the techron ingredient of Chevron. On much more fussy EFI systems, like older Mercedes, this fluid really resolved most everything...

Get this fixed soon, or risk engine damage.

Cylinder 1 misfire detectedrich or lean air/fuel mixture fuel injecter fault and faulty crank shaft sensor

Wow... Thats a lot of diagnostic codes. First... The cyl #1 misfire will cause the Engine to run rich giving you a rich running engine. Therefore the rich lean code. This misfire on cyl #1 can also throw a crankshaft sensor code as it will slow down engine rpm. I would change the spark plug and ignition coil to cyl#1 and have the codes erased and see if that solves the problem. If not, you then need to persue any codes that may reappear.

You should try to diagnose the problem.
A mechanic would use a scanner to watch the data coming from the O2 sensor to verify the mixture is rich. It could be a problem with the sensor, or something in the fuel system such as a leaking injector.

I have a code P0152 high oxygen sensor voltage on a Cadillac Deville 1999 what is the cause

Code 152 is for a high sensor signal from bank 2 sensor one. This is the sensor before the catalytic converter on the side with cylinder two.
The sensor is telling the computer the fuel mixture is too rich and that may or may not be true.
Code 175 is also for a rich mixture on bank two. Since you are getting both codes its possible you have a leaking injector on that side of the engine, or some other fuel problem.
It could also be a faulty O2 sensor sending a false signal.

have someone check the engine temp switch,this is what tells the computer how cold your coolant is,so the knows to make the fuel a rich mixture for cold starts.

1996 es300 trouble code po172 and misfireing on all cylinders

Whats going on here is that you have a too rich fuel air mixture. This will cause your misfiring and set off the PO172 Code. Your Bank 1 O2 Sensor is picking up the too rich mixture. This O2 sensor is location on the #1 Cylinder side (so you problem could be in #1/#3/#5 Cylinder). A dirty MAF Sensor, loose plug wire, dirty/broken spark plug, dirty fuel injectors, vacuum leak, and PCV Valve could all be a cause. I would run some injector cleaner through and also clean the MAF Sensor, change your PCV Valve. This would be an easy and cheap start for you. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

1999 Honda Civic EX fault codes 1366 and 1399

This code is not documented so the code reader is giving a false reading.
If the car runs OK and check engine light is not on, I would forget about it.
