How do I fix error code P0158?

What repairs can fix the P0158 code?

  1. Replace the rear oxygen sensor.
  2. Repair any oxygen sensor wires that have shorted out, are broken or exposed.
  3. Make necessary repairs to remedy the excessive fuel pressure.
  4. Replace engine coolant temperature sensor if it is necessary.

How do you fix a high voltage O2 sensor?

The number one most common repair for this problem is replacing the O2 Sensor itself. Another repair would be to replace the wiring or connection for Bank 1, Sensor 2. If the catalyst is the problem, replace the catalytic converter. Replace the fuel injector if it is leaking.

Which 02 sensor is bank 2 sensor 2?

Bank 2 is the set of cylinders that does not have number one cylinder. Sensor 1 is the sensor before the catalytic converter which the computer uses to make fuel ratio calculations. Sensor 2 is the sensor that comes after the catalytic converter and is mainly used for onboard emissions testing.

What causes O2 sensor High Voltage?

The high voltage condition from the O2 sensor is indicating a lack of oxygen in the exhaust or other related problems, such as a leaking fuel injector or a broken up catalyst inside.

Why does O2 sensor read High Voltage?

Can I drive with P0138 code?

It is okay to drive a vehicle with P0138 for a short period of time, but driving with this code for an extended period of time can damage the catalytic converter(s).

How much does it cost to fix code P0174?

How much does it cost to fix P0174? A broken vacuum hose sucking in air can be around $50, or a clogged fuel filter for $100. On the other hand, an oxygen sensor or mass air flow sensor can bring a bill of $400 to $500 dollars. A bad fuel pump can be really expensive costing around $600 to $800.

What is the difference between bank 1 and bank 2 on O2 sensor?

Bank One is always the bank where cylinder number one is located. On the Corvette it will always be the driver side. Bank Two is the passenger side. Sensor 1 on Corvettes is always the sensor that is closest to the exhaust port of the engine.

Where is the bank 2 sensor?

The oxygen sensor or Air/Fuel sensor closest to the engine in the exhaust manifold will always be Sensor 1. The O2 sensor located in or behind the catalytic converter will be Sensor 2. On V6 and V8 engines, Sensor 1 will always be on the SAME side as the Number ONE cylinder in the engine’s firing order.
