Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 3 months ago

How does the engine run? Does it idle and accelerate ok? Or does it stall out or bog down/hesitate under a load?

Runs great
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 3 months ago

Thank you for that information.

YES, if there are no air/vacuum leaks, no base engine mechanical issues and the wiring/circuit to and from the oxygen sensor is good, these codes indicate a faulty oxygen sensor (bank 1 sensor 1). Replace the oxygen sensor and you will be good to go!
