Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I replace the O2 sensor on my 1997 Pontiac Grand Am and before the week is over, the service engine soon light comes on again indicating the O2 sensor is bad. I have replaced it three times so far.

    What code are you getting? A O2 sensor code could be caused by any number of reasons not just a faulty O2 sensor.

How many oxygen sensors does a 1997 pontiac grand am have and how would i know which one needs to be replaced,the car is idling high. I also need to replace the exhaust manifold gasketand i was asked was...


Your vehicle will have 2 O2 sensors. One before the catalytic converter and one after. replacing the O2 sensor will likely not solve your high idle issue. An O2 sensor that has gone bad will likely set a code and turn on the check engine light. Is the check engine light on?

I assume you have a 3.1 liter V-6?

The left exhaust manifold will be the one closest to the radiator. The righ will be the one closest to the firewall.

I wouldn't have gotten a cat. If the o2s are all replaced, then it could be an EGR valve

1998 pontiac grand prix gt service engine soon light just came on. Auto Zone did a test and came back with a code. It said ''Fuel Air Metering P1133''. Can you tell me what this is?


P1133 HO2S Insufficient Switching Sensor 1

THIS IS THE O2 SENSOR CLOSEST TO THE ENGINE AND BEFORE THE CONVERTER.

AN EXHAUST LEAK OR A BAD SENSOR COULD BE THE PROBLEM.

CHECK THE O2 SENSOR WIRING FOR DAMAGE, CORROSION, ETC.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

Service Engine Light staying On


Alot of times a voltage drop to the O2 Sensor can cause your check engine light to come on. Even tho the O2 sensor is wrong fine.

I have this same problem and had it checked. It is the wheel sensor. Mine is the passenger front right wheel sensor. According to the mechanic I take it to the GrandAm's are known for this. The part is about $40.
