If you have no communication to O2 sensor, then you need to test, and eventually replace O2 sensor wiring.
To test O2 sensor wiring you need to trace wiring to computer ECU/ECM , and use a multimeter set on Impedance to measure impedance between car computer contact and O2 sensor contact, after disconnecting O2 sensor. If the wiring is good you will read low Ohms, if not , you get discontinuity (infinite Ohms).

1.4L turbo CEL P0171 P015B P1101 replaced bank 1&2 o2 sensors MAF sensor and all 4 spark plugs idles at 700rpm now roughly getting 20mpg instead of 48mpg anyone have any ideas?

There is no code P015B. Also you may have a actual lean condition and there was nothing wrong with the old part. Check for engine vacuum leaks while you monitor the output voltage from the O2 sensors. 1.0 volt is very rich fuel, .25 Volt and lower is very lean. The sensors should go back and forth with an average voltage of about .55 volts.

Jerking accelerating

similar problems: After 20min cool down jeep was bucking/lurching that I traced to bad o2 sensor in exhaust manifold (which you've replaced is seems). The second problem of bucking/lurching, backfiring under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into the computer wiring harness, disrupting sensor input / output signals. I cured this problem by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp, pushing the battery forward. Been years and no return of problem.

Can a diagnostic detect a bad catalyc converter?

Depends. A five gas analyser can tell the amount of NOX, CO, CO2 which will let you know based on what the values are. You can do a visual test at night if the car is running. Just look underneath. If it is glowing hot it is plugged. If you smell rotten eggs coming from the exhaust it is a good sign its bad. You can beat on it with your hand and if you hear debri inside being moved by the beating it needs replaced. A dianostic like a cheap scanner will tell you your downstream O2 sensor or bank 1 sensor 2 or bank 2 sensor 2 has a fault code but that isn't exactly going to tell you the Cat is bad. If your scanner has the ability to give you data you can see if the value is high or low depending on what the vehicle is supposed to read. If your upstream sensor 1 is reading good and your down stream sensor is reading bad there is most likely a hole between them. The sure sign of a bad Cat is lose of power, the smell of rotten eggs, its glowing under the car from heat caused by blockage, your O2 sensors are acting up or throwing codes, you can hear a leak coming from it or see one. Some Cats don't stink when they go bad because of the type of catalyst used inside. So if you know what your doing you can use a dianostic test to detect a bad catalytic converter.

i have similar problem with my 1999 b4 twin turbo auto. it happened after changing the knock sensor. other than this jerking the car gains power after and runs very well. but the jerking is annoying. No warning signs in my car dash though it burns well3f396f6a-4d54-4351-9bfa-47d0ca43b218.jpg

03 3oom runs rich at idle sputters at idle

Check the O2 wiring harness and connector for loose wiring connections, and any signs of fraying or cuts in the wiring.

If you used an aftermarket O2 sensor, it may be the problem. 90% of the time, aftermarket O2 sensors dont have the strict specifications required for a specific vehicle due to them being made to fit a wide range of engines, and will reset the trouble codes because of this.

If all checks out, you may simply need new plugs and wires to ensure there is no misses or sputtering that those O2 sensors are picking up.

96 Ford Taurus (150K miles) with engine code P0141 heated O2 sensor bank 1 sensor 2. This happened after having the transmission replaced. The engine runs rough or stalls during an idle. The transmission...

the transmission replcement mechanic may have missed plugging the 02 sensor back up,or layed the 02 sensor wires across the exhaust system,which burnt the 02 sensor wires.they also may have missed plugging sensors back up. suggest you go back to replacement mechanic and have them explain to you why it does'nt run the same. but do not be fooled,somethings not plugged back correctly.i know budget living. is check engine light on? if so, auto zone and advance auto parts can diagnose with printout for free. no charge! hope this helps and thank you for choosing us marine retired

Chech Engine light on so I plugged in my OBD tool and it read FUEL TRIM TOO RICH AT IDLE(bank 1).What sensor or part needs to be replaced? The vehicle is a 99 VW Passat 4cyl 1.8 turbo.

i would say the up stream o2 sensor.if you had a decent scanner you could watch the readings and know for sure.this is just and educated guess as i do not know those readings.

Failed O2 sensors? or fuel filter?

i would point to the actual fuel pump when they go weak they cannot supply enough fuel and it will miss and set o2 faults fuel filters usually cause a jerking under a load and will lose all power
