All those codes and such an easy fix. ALL of these codes point to your upstream 02 sensor. It's the one on the passenger side of the engine coming off the exhaust, very very easy to get to. Soak that puppy with PB Blaster then remove the electrical connector and remove and replace sensor. TRY to stay away from Bosch 02 sensors, have been known and reported problems with these. In my case, I didn't have a choice but to buy the Bosch, but I haven't had any problems with mine.

Hope this helps, look to get a tad more miles per gallon too.

Testimonial: "Good answer and really appreciate the help. Also was told a PCM recalibration may be needed. Thanks"

    Possibly and wouldn't hurt, recalibration at the dealer is around $85, close to the price of the 02 sensor. I'd just do the sensor first then clear the codes, and save $85 for something that might not be needed.

How do you change the o2 sensor on a 2003 impala


I wouldn't trust anything the Zone tells you. Most oxygen sensor codes are NOT caused by the oxygen sensor. Of coarse, a lot has to do with WHICH O2 sensor code you have. For example, codes P0130,P0131,P0132,P0133, P0134, P0135, P0137, P0138, P0140, P0141, P0171 and P0172, are all valid oxygen sensor/fuel trim codes for a 2003 Chevrolet Impala equipped with a 3.4L V-6 engine.
How you would go about troubleshooting the problem depends on which "oxygen sensor code" you have. Many times, the code can be fixed by simply repairing a leak in a vacuum hose. Quite often, these codes are caused by faulty mass airflow sensors. Then again, every once in a while, the problem is actually the oxygen sensor itself. However, if you go by the knowledge and experience in diagnostics that exists at the Zone, you will be changing an oxygen sensor EVERY time. Then when that does not fix the problem, you will be out the cost of the oxygen sensor, PLUS you will STILL have to diagnose the problem to fix it!

Many people think that all an automotive repair technician does is plug in the "magic box" and replace all the parts that the box (computer) tells them to replace (and the people at the Zone like it that way). TRUST ME, it does not work that way! I WISH it was that simple.

FYI: On Board Diagnostic (OBD) Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs) NEVER tell you what parts to replace. They are called DTCs because for a trained technician, they tell him which of the hundreds of DIAGNOSTIC TEST ROUTINES to perform in order to diagnose the fault and pinpoint the CAUSE of the problem.

Just a little professional advice from someone who has been diagnosing and repairing cars for about 37 years...do with it as you will.

Hi, I have a 1999 Saturn SC2 and my service engine light came on. I did a diagnostic on it and the code showed P1133. The guy at the auto shop told me it's an oxygen sensor, but didn't know if it was the...


First, I wouldn't let that guy work on your car. P1133 is "O2 Sensor Slow Response - Sensor 1" Anybody that has been in the auto repair business for more than a week should know that Sensor 1 is ALLWAYS the FRONT sensor.

Note: O2 sensor codes do not necessarily mean that an O2 sensor needs to be replaced. Most O2 Sensor codes are caused by something other than the O2 Sensor itself. (there are several different possible O2 Sensor codes for your car. P0131, P0132, P0133, P0134, P0138, P0171, P0172, P1133, P1134)

The most likely cause of DTC (Diagnostic TroubleCode) P1133 is contamination of the O2 Sensor. Replacing a contaminated O2 Sensor without repairing the source of the contamination will only result in a repeat repair. It could be caused by bad fuel, improper use of RTV sealant, engine oil or engine coolant. I have seen this caused many times by engine oil leaks that run down the exhaust and clog the holes in the side of the sensor shield. (The sensor must "breathe" to work properly)

Then on the other hand, if your vehicle has a lot of miles on it, the sensor could be just chemically worn out. In any case, the FRONT sensor is the one that is setting the code.
