    How hard is it to change a oxygen sensor

  • krittal67 Jan 17, 2009

    I have had the same thing happen to my 99 Jimmy, I was first told it was the remote start....had that taken off, then they say it was fuel pump and sending unit....replaced both of them, still did not solve the problem took to another repair shop all along it was the MAF sensor not O2 sensor this fixed THAT problem....not too mention the MANY other major problems I have had with this vehicle! I would never buy another one this is nothing but a money sucking piece of ****! I have spent over 4,000 since I have owned it fixing many different problems. Just replaced the alternator and now the headlights, interior light and everything are blinking. (Any idea on this one)? So far I have replaced the water pump, fuel pump, fuel regulator, serpentine belt, AC unit, distributor, spark plugs, wires, multiple batteries, rear wind shield wiper will not work, electric seats will not work anymore (check fuses and all), Heater blows out great air on vent or defrost anything else hardly any out put. One quick note if you can't get the key out of the ignition there is a plug that you can pop off a couple of inches under the ignition and stick a pen (or similar object) in the hole to release the key. Once again never ever would buy another GM no wonder the American Auto Industry is in such disarray and going bankrupt

This could be a major problem or a simple problem... First I'd have someone sit inside and start the car and REV the motor a little, feel the exhaust if it is extremely hot and very little coming out it may be Catalytic Converters... Could be Oxygen Sensors,
Distributor, Fouling injectors... On these newer cars it is really hard to tell, take it to a Auto Zone, Oreilly's or other car parts store, several of them will read your cars computer for free banking on the idea it's a replaceable part and you will buy from them...

94 tbi starts but dies unless u pump the gas it runs rough

This could be a whole range of problems from lack of fire to engine to a bad fuel pump or pressure regulator in the TBI but if all of that is good then check the Cat. converter to make sure it is not plugged or the muffler. As I have 1994 Chev Silverado myself I know you can pull the 02 sensor out ahead of the cat. and it should run better not well but better. It will relieve the back pressure to the engine.

My 350 tbi engine starts up, runs fine til it get warn, then it starts missing, chokes out etc.why?

probably Idle air control valve or EGR. under the dash there is a diagnostic port! with key off bridge terminal A & B turn key to on position (do not start) this will flash any trouble codes VIA the check engine light the first blink(s) are confirmation. then count blinks EXP,*** **= 32 , ***** ***= 53 , ** ********= 28... then just google GM OBD1 trouble codes and see what the problem is . 1_30_2013_3_58_06_am.jpg

My 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT has a flashing and sometimes a Solid SES light and runs rough

Usually with the newer vehicles when it starts to run rough or idle poorly it's time for a tune up, that will also make the check engine light come on on some vehicles, it needing an oil change can also cause the light

My 03 silverado 5.3 will start. idle is a little rough. when i get to 30 mph i loose power and runs really rough. shifting is hard and barely pulls itself up hill. just replace intake gaskets last week

Try taking the positive battery cable loose for 2 or 3 minutes, this will allow the computer to reset. You probably will still have a check engine light but should run until you can turn it off.
