Depends on the code that is displayed. But check around the sensor that was replaced. Remove and reconnect , check also the oil pressure switch, the crank sensor and the fuel side.
Wiring cant be wrong but can be the sensor itself.

1996 vw 2.0 aba starts runs great for about 15min then goes into a rough idle and dies almost like its not getting enough gas ?


Does the car have any check engine codes? Usually if the car runs poorly when warmed up, its because the computer tries to put the car into "closed loop mode" when it's up to operating temp but something is wrong. When engine is cold, the ECU uses the coolant temp sensor to adjust fuel mixture, when warm, it switches to O2 sensor and monitors other systems like EGR, etc. In my experience I've seen this be anything from O2 sensor, coolant temp sensor, or EGR valve. Could be a dirty throttle body too, as this is a common issue on the ABA engine.

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 My check engine light is on. All possible sensors that could be replaced have been.. Crankshaft, camshaft, etc. yet light still remains on. What could this be!?


When you replace the sensors that caused your check engine light to pop on, the vehicles computer still holds the information. The monitors have to reset. You do this by driving around for a while. Stop down to your local auto parts store and have them clear your cars codes with their obd 2 machine (free). If after a while of driving your codes stay off, problem fixed. If they come back on, go back to the auto store and have them read the codes.

Have a 1996 Isuzu Trooper LS, check engine light came on so I checked it with a scanner and it said generic code PO 133, which is a slow response, or slow switching so I put an oxygen sensor on, check...


I had the same thing. It is something to do with emissions apparently. I was told to check the fuel cap ! I put some silicone on the seal, cleaned it up, put it back on with the correct number of clicks and after about 15 minutes of driving, the Check Engine light stayed off.

Have an auto parts store check for the code. It is possible that you have a bad O2 sensor or your catalytic converter is clogged.

2001 6cy camry has check engine light on. code 1135


Hello. You can do this yourself.

You need to replace the Air-fuel sensor. I would strongly suggest that you purchase and install a Toyota sensor, however. The "aftermarket" sensors do not have the exact same voltage signals, and will not rectify the condition; the light will remain on. We see this quite a bit in our service dept.

We hope that this helps you out.

1996 VW Jetta has an engine code of P1586 Engine


P0422 - Catalyst below threshold.

Catalytic converter is clogged or out of medium.

Replace it.


ACTUAL DIAGNOSTIC:

Fault Code Definition
Code P0422 indicates that the Bank 1 Main Catalytic Converter's emissions efficiency has fallen below the minimum allowable limit. This threshold is tracked by a Catalyst Monitoring Oxygen Sensor located on or near the outlet of the Catalytic Converter.

Symptoms

* Check Engine Light will illuminate
* In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed

Common Problems That Trigger the P0422 Code

* Defective Catalytic Converter
* Engine misfires have damaged the Catalytic Converter
* Internal engine damage resulting in high oil consumption and/or a leaking Head gasket has damaged the Catalytic Converter

Common Misdiagnoses

* Oxygen Sensors are replaced when the real problem is a damaged Catalyst
* Catalyst is replaced when the real problem is internal engine damage, which is producing elevated emissions levels
* Catalyst is replaced when a misfiring engine is the real problem
