Question about Cars & Trucks
I need to know what each code is>
P132+ an O2 sensor reading is high bank1,sensor1, p135=O2 Heater circuit is bad, bank1,sensor1.
P300= Random misfires, p301 misfire cylinder1.p302 misfire cylinder2
p420 Bank1 Catalytic converter efficiency failing
What this means is that the Bank1 O2 sensor is either bad or the wiring to it is defective. Check for heat burnthrough on wires. The misfires started randomly and now pinpoint to cylinders 1 and 2.
The Catalytic converter failing because the misfires are clogging it. This can self correct once the cylinders stop misfiring.
Which messed up first is where you start solving this. Replace the O2 sensor, it is fouled out on Bank1. The heater circuit(p135) just makes it work faster and has little effect once you are underway. But high resistence in the O2(p132) means it is coated and ineffective.
There is a problem with firing #1 and #2 sparkplug. Probably the cause for the Catalytic converter plugging. A cracked coil, plug wires, sparkplugs are some causes as well as dirty fuel injectors on those 2 cylinders.
It is a cause and effect situation where 1 part fails and damages another. You need to fix the source of the problem or you will repeat th damage.

The first and last code are your start and stop so you can ignore them the P1130 and P1150 are your two front oxygen sensors( pre cats ) bank one and two. Depending on your millage it sounds like it is time for a little maintence. Normally they should be changed at or around 60,000 kms

This code refers to the front oxygen sensor on Bank
1. The heated circuit in the oxygen sensor decreases time needed to enter
closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor
responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding
it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching.
It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before
the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0135.
Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors.
Since you have already changed out your O2 sensor (as long as you used to OEM replacement and not the "Universal" replacement) you should not have to replace it again. You might check your thermostat to part of the time it takes for the O2 sensor to start switching being based on coolant temp, if your thermostat is not operating properly, it could cause the coolant temp to take longer than what is considered by the ECM to be normal.

P0301 is #1 cylinder misfire detected and is most likely related to a worn spark plug that is need of replacement. All plugs should be replaced if replacing one. Not sure how many miles you have on this vehicle, or if plugs were ever installed, but this is the basic step to take in diagnosis.
