HiCustomer

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

 

HA40 DTC P1131, P1151, P1132 AND P1152: UPSTREAM HO2S(S) NOT SWITCHING. DTCs P1130 AND P1150: FUEL SYSTEM NOT SWITCHING AT THE FUEL TRIM (RICH OR LEAN)

    Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P1131 bank 1 (Cylinder 1) and P1151 bank 2 indicate the fuel/air ratio is correcting rich for an overly lean condition. The HO2S voltage is less than 0.45 volt. DTCs P1132 bank 1 (Cylinder 1) and P1152 bank 2 indicate the fuel/air ratio is correcting lean for an overly rich condition. The HO2S voltage is greater than 0.45 volt.

     

    Which is in most case caused by a bad HO2S. Bank one (passenger side) .

English?? LOL. Whats the Ho2S??

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Sorry the HO2S is the Heated Oxygen sensor, you have one on each bank ( drivers side and passenger side) in you case it the passenger side that has the issue.

Thats what I figured but why would it give me 3 seperate codes for the same thing? The other 2 codes were po133 and po155

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
You always start with the first code. In most cases this is the Fix.

Hi again, I know this sounds stupid but I "think" I sent the funds to you but in my "status" it says "waiting for you"?? How do I know for sure that the funds were sent?

 

Thanks again,

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
