Q: Check engine light - O2 sensor circuit + speed sensor circuit...

asked by on

My car started occasionally stalling out, usually when slowing down quickly for a turn lane. Last week, the check engine light came on. I assumed I needed a tune-up, so I took it to Autozone to buy spark plugs and get the OBII reading... reading said O2 Sensor, Sensor 1, Bank 1 low voltage. I went to a pull-a-part, found a 2010 Sentra and got an a/f sensor and replaced it. Check engine, still on. Took it to get another reading... Same O2 sensor code PLUS a low voltage code for the speed sensor. I really don't think I did any damage while installing the a/f sensor. Is this likely a problem with the wiring harness? Autozone guy said maybe a mouse was chewing the wires? I can't imagine that. What's my next step?

My car has 118000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. O2 sensor low voltage can be caused my a number of things. Mass air flow sensor was only one of them. It can be a bad O2 sensor, coolant temperature sensor, or wiring issue.

What should be done is a proper diagnosis for the Check Engine Light. Using a complete scanner rather than just a code reader gives a technician the opportunity to not only read trouble codes, but to read voltages for individual sensors. While a code reader tells you the relevant system that set the Check Engine Light on, but with a number of possible causes, the full scan tool allows checking of each individual cause. Having a proper diagnosis will help you have this repaired correctly without replacing parts that are not faulty.

Q: Difficulty starting and stalling issue on a 2001 Chevrolet Impala

That is a pretty new vehicle in terms of young-born computers. When something goes wrong with the car or when it's stalling out, the computer records that data and the mechanic can read that data. If you want to try...
