Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Replaced Bank 1-Sensor 1, check engine light came back on, now I'm getting 10 mpg, black smoke when I get on it. Ran diagnostics at AutoZone; 6 codes;(1) p0131, (1) p0171, (2) p0300, (2)p0455, checked the gas cap on the 455 code and the seal is good, the manager there said it was probably a vacuum leak. What is a safe & easy way to find the leak, and is this a common occurence?

Check your wiring make sure it is in the correct firing sequence! p0300 means misfire! p0131 means O2 sensor is not working properly.

Hi I have a 1997 cadillac eldorado 4.6l northstar engine. It went from normal to blows clouds of smoke out the rear exhaust. Run sluggish.


clouds of smoke out the rear exhaus ,What color ? blue smoke is oil , white smoke is most of the time coolant is getting into the engines cylinders , Black the engine is running rich ,too much fuel . DTC P0135 HO2S Heater Performance Bank 1 Sensor 1
DTC P0147 HO2S Heater Performance Bank 1 Sensor 3
DTC P0340 IC Module Cam Reference CKT No Frequency
DTC P0401 Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Flow Insufficient
P0441 has nothing to do with the gas cap !
DTC P0441 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System No Flow During Purge
DTC P1441 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge

P0441 & P1441 will be back , may take a day or two , but will be back because gas cap has nothing to do with it .

Honestly , you should take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop !

Codes P2270& P2272 after oil change check engine light on drove under 100 miles both O2 sensors bad .Could shop have caused this somehow??? Maybe banging them or something ?


make sure they are plugged in tight Definition of Diagnostic Trouble Code P2270 Category: Powertrain Definition: O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean Bank 1 Sensor 2Note: This definition of P2270 is applied to all manufacturers

P2270 - O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean Bank 1 Sensor 2 Comments ' Add Yours
Possible causes
- Faulty Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1
- Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 harness is open or shorted
- Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Exhaust gas leaks Help with this
When is the code detected?
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the HO2S12 sensor has reported a lean condition for an extended period during an intrusive test
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- High Fuel Consumption
- Excessive Smoke from Exhaust
P2270 Description
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a voltage of about 450 mV between the HO2S high and low signal circuits. The oxygen sensor varies the voltage over a range from about 1,000 mV when the exhaust is rich, down through about 10 mV when the exhaust is lean.
The PCM monitors and stores the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) voltage information. The PCMevaluates the HO2S voltage samples in order to determine the amount of time the HO2S voltage was out of range. The PCM compares the stored HO2S voltage samples taken within each sample period and determines if majority of the samples are out of the operating range.

Replaced bank 1 and bank 2 downstream oxygen sensors on 2004 5 speed automatic diagnostic code still says not working


Try resetting the codes by removing both terminals on the battery for 10 minutes. After the codes should be rest if they do not come back on the sensors are fine.

2007 Toyota sienna V6 P2197 code from Autozone diagnostic.


Solved. I have 2008 Sienna with Check Engine and VSC lights on. Scanned codes were P0051 and P2197. Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 Sensor 1 needs to be replaced. You can see this sensor on the right side of the engine when you open up the hood. You need to get an Oxygen Sensor socket (I used Tekton 7/8in 22mm which costs $9) and a wrench extension to reach it. Spraying liquid wrench a few times on the base of the old sensor also helped to loose it. The replacement sensor I used was Denso 234-9049 which costs $85 from eBay. Lights went off after the sensor was replaced. It took me 30 minutes to replace.

Cavalier blowing out black smoke car idles fairly well considerin


Black smoke is usually unburned fuel. P0171 reads bank 1 system too lean. There isn't one answer. You need to dig further and inspect your cars fuel system, from the pump to the injectors. Because of the mileage you may want to start off with a compression test just to see where you stand with the motor. write back if you have any other questions.
