Question about 2002 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

How many air/fuel or oxygen sensors are on the 2002 Prerunner 4cylinder?

Thank you. The stealership says I have 3; one on the exhaust manifold, called the air/fuel ratio sensor (basically and advanced o2 sensor) one o2 sensor just before the first CAT and one o2 sensor just after the last CAT. I just looked at the exhaust system real close, there is no sensor on or near the exhaust manifold. Are they lying or just incompetent?

The air-fuel sensor is located BELOW the manifold, on the side of the head pipe. You would need to be under the vehicle to see it.
That sensor is commonly called "bank one/sensor one".

Where are o2 sensors location


One would need the year, make, model, and engine size to tell you exactly where they are and how many.

O2 sensors are always in the exhaust stream, either in the exhaust manifold that is attached to the engine, or in the exhaust piping after the exhaust manifold. Some models have one for each bank of the engine, and some have only one sensor to monitor oxygen content. These engine sensors that the computer uses to "fix" or adjust the air/fuel ratio are called the upstream oxygen sensors. If the car is equipped (as most are today) with an oxygen sensor after the catalytic converter, this is called a downstream oxygen sensor. They are the same and do the same thing, but the downstream sensor is only used to monitor the efficiency of the converter. The upstream sensor(s) are what the computer reads to adjust or "trim" the fuel delivery.

So some older cars have only one o2 sensor. Not far from the engine in the exhaust stream. Some newer cars with dual exhaust (2 converters) may have four o2 sensors. 1 for each bank of the engine and 1 behind each catalytic converter. A 2005 Buick Century with a 3.1L engine, for instance, has only two o2 sensors: one (upstream) in the exhaust down pipe, and one (downstream) just behind the catalytic converter.

0152 coed


P0152 P0152 - O2 Sensor Circuit High Voltage Bank 2 Sensor 1Possible causes - Faulty Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2
- Intake air leaks may be faulty
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 harness is open or shorted
- Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 circuit poor electrical connection
- Inappropriate fuel pressure
- Faulty fuel injectors
eplacing the Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 usually takes care of the problem
Symptoms- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- High Fuel Consumption
- Excessive Smoke from Exhaust P0152 Description The front heated oxygen sensor (or O2 sensor 1) is placed into the exhaust manifold. It detects the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas compared to the outside air. The heated oxygen sensor 1 has a closed-end tube made of ceramic zirconia. The zirconia generates voltage from approximately 1V in richer conditions to 0V in leaner conditions. The heated oxygen sensor 1 signal is sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM adjusts the injection pulse duration to achieve the ideal air-fuel ratio. The ideal air-fuel ratio occurs near the radical change from 1V to 0V.

Where is the oxygen sensor bank 1 sensor 1?


From the 2002 Oldsmobile Alero manual:
A device found in the exhaust manifold, which generates a small voltage dependent on the amount of oxygen present in the exhaust stream, used as a signal to the engine-control computer to determine the amount of fuel necessary to maintain a proper air/fuel ratio.
What this means to me is search the exhaust manifold for it - its screwed into it.
Unscrew it with a specialty oxygen sensor socket (a slotted 7/8-in hex socket) - available for
$10 at any parts store. This is likely the HO2S (heated oxygen sensor) Bank 1 Sensor 1, since
it is before the catalytic converter, the second oxygen sensor (Bank 1, Sensor 2) should
be the one located after the catalytic converter.

codes:
P0130 - HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Circuit Closed Loop Performance
P0131 - HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Circuit Low Input
P0132 - HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Circuit High Input
P0133 - HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Insufficient Activity
P0135 - HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Malfunction

Note the P0131 can be also be caused by a bad MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor,
so yank the MAP sensor and check the computer for a lean fuel condition (P0131=low input).

My car burns gas very fast. where is the 02 sensor located? do i need a calib cabreter?


02 sensors are located in the exhaust the upstream ones are close to the engine in the rear exhaust manifold (for 6 cylinders) and at the front exhaust (for 4 cylinder). The downstream ones are behind the catalytic converter. Check to make sure the fuel pressure regulator on the to of the engine isn't leaking. Replace the air and fuel filter could be plugged. Check the coolant level in both the rad and the reservoir they are notorious for intake manifold and head gasket leaks for 6 cylinders. There aren't many calibration updates for this vehicle relating to fuel consumption.

Can you tell me what a lambda sencer does and how does it affect the engine,as my engine light comes on but dosent stay on but when on reduces power.thank you it is a vauxhall astra club 2000 16v did not...


Not sure, but I believe the lambda sensor is the feedback sensor, to determine if the mixture really is right.
On most cars that is the oxygen sensor I believe, and is located in the exhaust manifold or the top of the exhaust pipe.

The PCM controls the air/fuel metering system to good overall fuel economy, driveability, and emission control. During open loop, the PCM determines fuel delivery based on sensor signals, without the oxygen sensor input. During closed loop, the PCM adds oxygen sensor inputs to calculate Short and Long term fuel trim fuel delivery adjustments. Short Term fuel trim values change rapidly in response to changes in the oxygen sensor signals. Long Term fuel trim makes coarse adjustments in order to maintain an air/fuel ratio of 14.7:1.

Possible Causes:
  • Air leaks in intake manifold, exhaust pipes or exhaust manifold
  • Fuel control sensor is out of calibration (ECT, IAT or MAF)
  • Low fuel pressure (fuel filter clogged, pressure regulator failure)
  • One or more injectors restricted or pressure regulator has failed
  • HO2S element is contaminated, deteriorated or has failed
  • Vacuum hose is disconnected, broken, leaking or loose

Not just a faulty catalytic converter will trigger this code. Many other issues can trigger this code.

  • Leaded fuel was used where unleaded was called for
  • An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
  • The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
  • Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / exhaust pipe
  • Delayed spark timing
  • The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar of readings
Possible solutions:
  • Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter.
  • Replace Coolant Temperature Sensor
  • Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).
  • Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2)
  • Replace the catalytic converter
  • Have timing adjusted

My check engine light is on!!


hi
P0171 system too lean , bank 1
the most causes is :-
1- intake or exhaust leak . test the air filter in intake hose or
blocked exhaust pipe
2-MAF sensor (Manifold Air Flow sensor) locate in intake hose

3-fuel pressure or pump may be the filter blocked or need change
4- injectors may be need cleaning by use a cleaner with fuel

5-HO2S (Heated Oxygen Sensor ) locate in exhaust pipe bank 1 near the engine
check this causes , and ask for more information
