45 is rich exhaust, 13 is o2 open short or ground. How long ago did you replace the o2? You may have got a bad one. Code 45, Does it seem that the engine is running rich?

Can not find the crank shaft sensor on my 97 pontiac grand prix se with a 3100.


Have you checked for it just in back of crankshaft pulley? Should be on the car's forward facing side in back of crank pulley. Partially hidden, but the connector should be visible when looking from underneath car. If it is there, the pulley will have to come off for replacing the sensor.

What does it mean when code P1133 comes up on your Grand Prix 2004 tes


Hi there:
DTC P1133 - Insufficient switching on Bank1 Sensor1 O2 sensor.


This is the O2 sensor located in the exhaust manifold. The vast majority of the time it is a faulty O2 sensor, but check O2 wiring harness for any chafing, as well as melting(resting on exhaust manifold):

To replace, disconnect the harness connector, and use O2 sensor socket to remove sensor. Once you change it, the code has to be cleared with a scanner. it wont reset itself. Most major parts stores will clear the codes for free. Make sure you get a direct fit O2 sensor. The universal ones that you have to splice into dont work right most of the time. They lose voltage in the wire splice and will reset the code.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1994 Pontiac Grand Am 3.1L 6-cylinder Firing Order

11_29_2011_10_48_12_pm.jpg

Fig. 3.1L (VIN M) Engine Firing Order: 1-2-3-4-5-6 Distributorless Ignition System.

One can verify that this Firing Order Diagram applies to your 1994 Grand Am, by making sure that the 8th digit of VIN is "M" (for this 6-cyl 3.1L engine type), and the 10th digit of VIN is "R" (for model year 1994).

I need to know what makes and models will interchange with a 98 pontiac grand prix gt when it comes to motors


depends what motor you have? the 8th VIN digit tells what the engine is, most any GM car with that same 8th digit should work, but a salvage yard could tell you more.

2005 pontiac grand prix, code p0641 came on. What


DTC P0641 The powertrain control module (PCM) provides a 5-volt reference to the following sensors:

The throttle position (TP) sensor 1
The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor 2
The engine cooling fan speed sensor
The AC pressure sensor
The fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor
The oil pressure sensor (OPS)
The PCM monitors voltage on the 5-volt reference circuit. If the voltage is higher or lower than required, DTC P0641 will set.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
The PCM detects a voltage that is higher or lower than required on the 5-volt reference circuit. The above condition is present for 1 second. Action Taken When the DTC Sets The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) when the diagnostic runs and fails. The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The control module stores this information in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records.
Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC The control module turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail. A current DTC, Last Test Failed, clears when the diagnostic runs and passes. A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic. Clear the MIL and the DTC with a scan tool.

Yes i can be dangerous, depending which issues mentioned above has triggered the code such as a faulty gas peddle position sensor. the code can also cause a reduced engine power to activate.

Thank you for using Fixya and best advice is to have the dealer address these issues. A tech 2 scanner would be needed to address the P0641 DTC code.

What years 3.1 engine will fit in 1998 pontiac grand prix


Unfortunately it's a (relatively) one year only engine (without major component changes). However, these will fit without those changes:

'97, '98, '99 Buick Century,

'98, '99 Lumina (car),

'98, '99 Grand Prix,

'99, Monte Carlo.

This is assuming that you have an (8th digit) "M" VIN. Off the top of my head.

Looking for o2 sensor on 02 accord


Yes this will work if it says direct fit oe replacement and not universal. The universal replacements never work because you have to cut the plug off of your and wire it on the new one. The Engine code is the 8th character of the vin. You can also look under the hood on the engine label and get the code there.

O2 sensor location 1997 pontiac grand am 2.4 4 cyl auto trans


BANK 1 SENSOR 1 IS THE ONE IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. BANK 2 SENSOR 2 IS BELOW THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

P0171 SHOULD GO AWAY WITH A GOOD O2 SENSOR BUT DO CHECK FOR VACUUM LEAKS TO BE SURE. 3.1/3.4L ENGINES HAVE A BAD DESIGN INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET, THE LEAK OIL, COOLANT, AND AIR.
