Signs of a bad valve cover gasket


My first question would be, what was the original trouble code that directed the mechanic to replace the sensors ? You seldom need more than one O2 sensor at a time. Its possible the exhaust manifold is leaking and that might cause a problem that would turn on the warning light. Or it could be something else.
A valve cover gasket will leak oil if it fails. No check engine light.

I have the P0133 code bank 1 sensor 1, i know it could be the O2 sensor but when i disconnect the service hose leading to the evap canister it runs better but only for a little bit. im not sure why that...


CODE PO133 O2 BANK 1 SENSOR 1 SLOW RESPONSE. POSSIBLE CAUSES, LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD OR EXHAUST PIPES. THE O2 SIGNAL CIRCUIT OR UPSTREAM CIRCUIT HAS FAILED, THE O2 ELEMENT HAS FAILED.COULD BE THE O2 SENSOR ALSO YOU COULD HAVE A VACUUM LEAK OR EXHAUST MANIFOLD LEAK.

Oxygen sensor replacement


It's something you can with simple tools, you have four O2 sensors. Your going to have to get the truck rescanned or if you have the DTC code, you can find out which O2 sensor has gone bad so you can replace it. Your going to have Two upstream O2 sensors on each exhaust bank, one O2 sensor before the Catalytic Converter, and the last one after the Catalytic Converter. Its like replacing a Spark plug and you can pick up the O2 sensor at any large Auto Parts store with a can of WD 40. Just unclip the wire leads to the O2 sensor and then with a O2 sensor socket or hint close end wrench and hammer, you can remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust pipe. Good luck and be safe.

It should not be too hard but there are special sockets to clear the wire, you might get by with a wrench of the correct size, they are either side of the bulge in the front exhaust pipes (the cat converters) and either side of the transmission, are you sure you need all 4?

02 sensors


the printout from Auto zone tells you that there is a probelm with fuel mixture control, this doesn't always mean the O2 sensors are defective, intake leaks and iother factors can give O2 codes, give me the code you have and i will let you know the most likely problem.

Check engine on


o2 sensor is usually located on the manifold of most 4 cylinder engines they are normally a one wire connection. you will need the following:

New oxygen sensor....these can be really expensive.
a open end wrench that fits the O2 sensor, or an O2 sensor socket and a ratchet to loosen and tighten the O2 sensor

Start by driving the car to get the car warm o2 sensors can be very hard to get out if they are cold.

if you think you might burn yourself on something hot put thick gloves on, you will have to disconnect the on wire on the o2 sensor, unfortunately you cant wear gloves while doing this, so be extremely careful as the exhaust will be very hot.

After wire disconnected loosen o2 sensor by going counter clock wise using either a o2 sensor socket or a appropriate wrench

while wearing gloves, after the sensor is loose enough unscrew by hand, remember it is still very hot.

you can let engine cool down now if you want.

put new o2 sensor in tightening it firmly and replug the electrical connector back up.

if your check engine light does not go out take to autozone and have them reset your computer, or you can disconnect your battery cables for 20+ minutes and this resets the computer also.
