Have your temperature sending unit checked to be sure the computer is taking it out of cold start mode. Most likely it is not working and still dumping too much fuel into the engine and causing the high reading. Think about what I just said, makes sense doesn't it.

sounds like a bad cat and o2 sensor. try a scanner, if the downstream sensor is attempting to make a 99% fuel trim adjustment, you can bet it needs changing along with the catalytic converter. get someone to follow you and accelerate hard, a rotton egg smell is a dead giveaway

I have a 1997, chevy alumina it won't pass emissions. It keeps throwing the code p 0336. However,.the sensor is good. What do I need to do to get it to pass?

There is some other issue as well with the engine if it has failed emissions testing.

Have the vehicle scanned to see what other fault codes if any have been generated and to see what irregularities there may be with the operation of the engine. It may well be failing emissions because it is running too rich or it could be for numerous other reasons.

Your engine is still running rich, inspect all your vacuum lines and your fuel pressure regulator. A bad fuel pressure regulator can cause your engine to run rich and is there any check engine light on???

Engine running rich after emissions check

Your oxygen sensor is designed to send a signal to the engine, telling it to burn more or less lean as determined by the oxygen in the exaust. This may be your culprit.
I hope this helps... Good luck.
