If the oxygen in the exhaust gas increases, the air-fuel ratio becomes Lean. At the advice of people on the board, I took it to AutoZone to read the codes. The Engine Control Module adjusts the fuel injection time so that the air-fuel ratio is nearly stoichiometric. I looked under the truck, and the only O2 sensor that I could see looked like it was on top of the cat. The other day I got it again so I started to investigate. If the oxygen in the exhaust gas decreases, the air-fuel ratio becomes Rich.
If your stealerships talks about gas cap u better to run, they suck. AutoTrust Platinum provides a growing selection of low-priced, premium quality oxygen sensor system components!. If either sensor isn't working correctly, the car will run rough and the engine will be less efficient. For optimum catalyst operation, the air fuel mixture air-fuel ratio must be maintained near the ideal stoichiometric ratio. He hit the nail on the head in diagnosing it!! It was under warranty so it took it to the dealer and when I got it back the climate control did not work and the check engine light came on. I cleaned the connector, put it back together and while sucking from the hose with my mouth I watched the ohm meter.
I have a 1997 Dodge Dakota Sport, 3. . In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver.

They said there was corrosion around the gas recepticle.
Posted on Feb 20, 2012 P0138 - O2 Oxygen Sensor Circuit High Voltage Bank1, Sensor2 The Heated Oxygen Sensor 2 located rear of catalytic converter produces an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of catalytic converter. I've had the same check engine light on for the same code, P0441, 3 times in the last two months. . Ho2S 2 signal is less active than signal produced by front oxygen sensor. Yamin, did the solenoid fix your problem? Possible high fuel pressure can over rich the system.

There is also a provision to vent pressure or fill a vacuum if something goes haywire. Other hose types will rot, break, or fail quickly. If the sensor is working properly it switches from low voltage high levels of oxygen to a high voltage low levels of oxygen.
Universal Oxygen Sensor features stainless steel shell, hex nut, shield, Teflon-covered insulated wires, high-temperature rubber internal and external seals, and threaded tube coated with anti-seize compound. If the oxygen in the exhaust gas increases, the air-fuel ratio becomes Lean. Here are the definition and possible causes of the fault code being set. Gas caps are not that hard to install correctly. This oxygen sensor is located behind the catalytic converter. This is a quick gloss over of the basics from memory and after a couple o' beers. I didn't reset the computer, I let it clear on its own and watch how long it takes, probably a week or two I don't drive much.
. In my video I'll show you where to look when diagnosing these pesky codes and how to possibly fix the problem. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. This is Georgia vehicle So not California emissions.
