There are 2 sensor's..one near the exhust manifold and the other after the cat converter. You need to know which one is bad first.

My check engin light came on the codes came up as po133, p1000 what do i do to fix my car is a 1998 ford windstar?


A code P0133 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The oxygen sensor is faulty
  • The wiring to the sensor is broken / frayed
  • There is an exhaust leak
the problem is more than likely the front Bank 1 oxygen sensor. You will likely wind up replacing it but you should also consider these possible solutions:
  • Check and fix any exhaust leaks
  • Check for wiring problems (shorted, frayed wires)
  • Check the frequency and amplitude of the oxygen sensor (advanced)
  • Check for a deteriorating / contaminated oxygen sensor, replace if necessary
  • Check for inlet air leaks
  • Check the MAF sensor for proper operation
  • code p1000 refers to emission monitors not fully run and requires a couple of drive cycles from cold start to fully warmed drive cycle at different speeds.

My Dodge Stratus (1998 4 cyl) check Engine light is on. The error code says oxygen sensors were bad. Both oxygen sensors have been replaced. After resetting the check Eng light. The oxygen sensor


the upper 02 sensor is for air fuel mix while the secondary 02 sensor is for the operation and status of the catalitic converter are you sure the catalitic converter is not plugged. Could be if you have had a loss of power

What is an 02 sensor upstream 98 astro van


02 sensor is your oxygen sensor, 98 chevy astro carries 3 oxygen sensor. i belived your bad sensor is on the passenger side by the exhaust manifold but if not try the drivers side all the oxygen sensor for this van are the same. you need to go under the van to replace it, if is to hard to get it out turn your van for five minutes then turn it off and try again, be carefull not to burn your self. the one close to the catalytic converter is the downstream oxygen sensor ok, good luck!!!!!!

P0421 code


"FWIW, according to the Mazda factory service manual, the P0421 code indicates "Warm up catalyst system efficiency below threshold".

The DETECTION CONDITION for this code indicates "Number of heated oxygen sensor (rear) inversion becomes closer to that of heated oxygen sensor (front)".

POSSIBLE CAUSES are:

Warm up three way catalytic converter deterioration
Leakage exhaust system
Heated oxygen sensor (front) malfunction
Heated oxygen sensor (rear) malfunction
Mass air flow sensor malfunction
Throttle position sensor malfunction
Vehicle speed sensor malfunction"
I copied the above from a discussion group on the PO421 code. The code can be caused by any of the above listed problems. The vehicle should be further inspected and diagnosed, so you do not have components replaced that do not need to be replaced.

It will be very much appreciated if you could send me the information about how to replace the O2 sensors on a 1998 chrysler sebring convertible.


Hello, Eventually your Chrysler Sebring's oxygen sensor will go bad and need to be replaced. The oxygen sensor regulates the oxygen-to-fuel ratio in your vehicle. It also controls your gas mileage. It senses when more or less oxygen needs to be pumped into the fuel lines. If it fails, your Sebring will run poorly and won't get very good gas mileage. Knowing how to change it yourself can save your money. Here are the instruction to change o2 sensors.
Locate your Sebring's oxygen sensor on the pre-catalytic converter. This is located near the front right wheel well of your vehicle. Apply some anti-seize paste to the threads of the new oxygen sensor. Be careful not to get any of the paste on the sensor itself, or it will be ruined. This makes for easy removal of the sensor next time.Remove the old oxygen sensor, using the 7/8-inch wrench. Find the stock sensor wire near the engine-loop lift. This will be by the firewall of your Chrysler Sebring. Splice the stock sensor wire and connect it to the new oxygen sensor's wire, using crimp connectors.Remove the large air-intake pipe that runs from the air box to the rear turbo. Then remove the two smaller air pipes that run from the air box to the blowoff valves. This will give you access to the oxygen sensor. Soak the old oxygen sensor in WD-40 to loosen it. Screw in the sensor by hand. Use the wrench to fully tighten the oxygen sensor so it cannot be removed by hand. Replace the air pipes to the correct valves again.

    Need to replace oxygen sensor


    TO REPLACE OXYGEN YOU NEED A SLOTTED SOCKET AND A TUBE ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND. MOST OF THE TIME NEW OXYGEN SENSOR ALREADY HAS ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND USED ON THE THREADS.TO REPLACE OXYGEN SENSOR FIRST CRANK VECHICLE FOR A FEW MINUTES SO YOU CAN REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR MORE EASILY. ONCE YOU GET THE EXHAUST LITTLE WARM.YOU DISCONNECT OXYGEN SENSOR CONNECTOR TAKE SLOTTED SOCKET REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR APPLY ANTI SEIZE ON OXYGEN SENSOR THREADS THE SCREW IT IN PLACE..WEAR LONG SLEEVES COVERALLS, SAFETY GLASSES KEEP RUST PARTICLES GETTING INTO YOUR EYES. AND LEATHER GLOVES KEEP HANDS FROM CUTS AND EXHAUST BURNS. IF YOU REPLACING DOWN STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU HAVE TO RAISE VECHICLE SUPPORT ON JACKSTANDS. FOR UP STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU CAN REPLACE WITHOUT RAISING THE VECHICLE.REASON I SAY CRANK ENGINE TO WARM UP EXHAUST SYSTEM BECAUSE METAL EXPANDS WHEN HOT THAT MAKES REMOVING OXYGEN SENSOR EASIER. IF YOU DONT CRANK VECHICLE THE COLD CAUSES METAL TO SHRINK MAKING HARDER TO REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR.POSSIBLY DAMAGING SENSOR THREADS WHILE TRYING TO LOOSEN SENSOR FROM EXHAUST MANIFOLD OR PIPE. YOU CAN BUY SLOTTED SOCKET AND ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORES.

    On the SOHC engine the front (A/F) oxygen sensor is located in the front section of the front catalytic converter. The rear oxygen sensor is located in the rear section of the front catalytic converter. On the DOHC engine the front oxygen sensor is located in the front section of the exhaust system, just past the crossover pipe. The rear oxygen sensor is located in the front section of the catalytic converter.

    Kia sephia 2000 (manual) Oxygen sensor P0133


    The Oxygen probe is located in the exhaust manifold or front exhaust pipe it takes a 22mm wrench to loosen it and at first you need to dismantle the battery to avoid electric hazard, then the cable to the probe so it does not have any connection with the vehicle, clips and holders, after that turn the probe anticlockwise to dismantle it, and reversed operations when fitting the new one, and that should fix you problem.
    The only thing that can be a problem is if the probe is rusted together to the manifold, that requires professional help.
