    The pre-cat O2 sensor was an easy install on the Pontiac Grand Prix. Approximately 45 minutes to remove and install. Easier access with hands and tools vs the post-cat sensor. As always, the right tools help get the job done. So far I'm happy with the Bosch exact fit product.

    I installed this upstream Oxygen Sensor to address a fault code on my 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Van (3.4L ). Apparently this sensor gives a low voltage signal to the van's PCM (computer) indicating a false lean condition. The PCM responds by sending too much fuel to the engine. Once the van reached operating temperature, the engine would run rich and surge in idle and eventually cut off. I tried a second Bosch sensor and had the same results. I then ordered and installed a Delco O2 sensor to correct the problem. This sensor may not be compatible with similar GM applications.

    Comments about Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor:

    I oredered this 02 sensor online and it came in an opened and torn package. The threads on the sensor were dirty as well...like it had definitely been installed in a vehicle previously. I installed the sensor anyway, because I did not have time to send it back and wait for another. I cleared the codes and the car ran fine for 500 miles then the idiot light came back on and the car started idling erraticly. Needless to say, I am not impressed with this product.

        Comments about Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor:

        Installed on a 2003 Buick Lesabre. The only difficulty encountered was getting the old sensor out - had to use plenty of PB blaster and (probably not recommended) - a couple of very careful, short "shocks" with an air impact tool. New sensor installation was a breeze - Connector matched up perfectly with existing wiring. Installed just before a long trip and noticed about a 1-2 mpg improvement. I would certainly recommend this product.

              This is a direct replacement for the upstream (before the catalytic converter) Oxygen Sensor on many different cars, mine is a 2003 Impala. It is a direct replacement for the original, you just need the special O2 sensor socket to remove the old one. It can be done without it, but use one, it's much easier. 30 minutes from start to finish is all it took. Make sure you route the wire the same as the original so it doesn't get damaged by the exhause heat.

                  A:

                  With reference to your inquiry on the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor - part# 13474, for the codes P0151, P0154, P1153 check for vacuum leak(s) at the intake gaskets on Bank 2 and the EGR. Check wiring and connections for proper voltage(s) and grounds from the pre-cat O2 Sensor on Bank 2 to the PCM. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                  A:

                  Corrosion on the old sensor and exhaust pipe may be an obstacle. Remove the sensor once you've gotten the tool ( Socket wrench, Oxygen sensor socket or 22 mm socket) onto it by turning the tool counterclockwise. A degree of force will be required, but if it doesn't feel like it's going to budge, heating up the portion of the exhaust pipe that surrounds the threads of the oxygen sensor might help. This can be done with a portable propane torch. Don't heat the sensor as well. You're goal is to expand the exhaust pipe and not the sensor. Being careful not to burn yourself, retry removing the sensor with the wrench or socket until you're successful. If you don't have a torch, try running the car long enough to heat the exhaust system up for a while and then liberally spray lubrication oil on the sensor. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

              • Q:

                I have 4 O2 sensors on 98 Pontiac Grand Prix.
                I am told, 1 sensor in the exh.manifold, 1 in the exh.man. crossover pipe, 1 before the cat. conv., and 1 after the cat. conv.
                2 sensors went bad & caused computer codes.
                I can't determine if Bosch Part#13474 Upstream sensor, is the one in the exh. man., crossover pipe, or just before the catalytic converter.
                It was easy to determine which one of the sensors that went bad after the catalytic converter, since there is only one sensor after the cat.converter.
                Although, I am unable to determine which of the 3 sensors before the catalytic converter went bad, as it only vaguely explains that it is located before the catalytic converter, instead of whether it is the exh.manifold sensor, crossover sensor, of just before the cat.conv.
                The 2 computer trouble codes are P0141 and P0137, if this is of any help in making the determination.
                How can I determine which sensor to replace before the cat.conv.for Bosch Part#13474 O2 sensor?

                  A:

                  The code P0137 causes due to faulty o2 sensor exhaust leak near the rear sensor, due to plugged catalyst, short to voltage on O2 signal circuit, high resistance or open on O2 signal circuit. The code P0141 occur due to open or short to ground in the wiring harness, O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance, O2 heater element resistance is high, Internal short or open in the heater element. These both codes shows bank1 sensor2. The bank1 sensor2 on 1998 Pontiac grand prix should be located between the catalyst converter and the resonator on the rear side of the front manifold/pipe almost under the cover.

                • CUSTOMER CARE

                  A:

                  The Oxygen sensor plays an important role in monitoring the oxygen content of the car's exhaust system. It determines the optimal mixture of air to fuel ratio needed to run the vehicle. A defective sensor can greatly affect your vehicle's fuel consumption because it allows the vehicle to use more fuel than what it should resulting in poor gas mileage., INCREASED VEHICLE EMISSIONS: A malfunctioning Oxygen sensor can result in poor air/fuel mixtures or lean or rich fuel-injection delivery, all of which can cause improper or inefficient engine combustion and increased vehicle emissions., ROUGH ENGINE IDLE: For maximum engine performance, proper engine combustion is crucial. A malfunctioning Oxygen sensor can cause a car's engine to idle in a choppy, rough manner. This is caused by the less-than-optimum engine combustion firings that result in poor engine performance., ENGINE MISSING: A malfunctioning Oxygen sensor causes an engine's air/fuel mixture to become too lean or restricted, the explosions within an engine's cylinders will be altered. Normally, an air/fuel mixture that is too lean (much air, not enough fuel) will cause an engine to miss, or misfire, especially when an engine is idling., ENGINE HESITATION: Engine hesitation is experienced only during acceleration, while an engine miss can be experienced both during engine acceleration and idle. A malfunctioning oxygen sensor may misread or misinterpret an engine's air/fuel mixture or air/fuel requirements and cause too little or too much air and/or fuel to enter an engine's cylinders, especially during acceleration. This can cause an engine to hesitate, or stumble.
                  For compatibility of this part Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor, Part No. 13474 manufactured by Bosch with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.

                  The easiest way to find the Oxygen sensors on your Pontiac Grand Am SE is to follow the exhaust pipe connected to the exhaust manifold. The upstream sensor will be located along the front exhaust pipe before the catalytic converter. The downstream sensor is found right after the catalytic converter on the back exhaust pipe.

If you had a code retrieved and replaced them, the code will remain in the computer, but that will have NO effect on engine operation at all. The ECM will respond normally to the new sensors.

              • Q:

                1997 GMC Sierra 2500 Utility truck. Has a 350r in it. it starves & gasp after being on for awhile until it looses power. Thought it was Mass Airflo. Changed that. Scanner:8 codes saying all oxygen sensors are done. Dupe means duplicate

                Codes were: P0131 oxygen sensor
                circuit low voltage
                Bank 1 sensor 1 (Dupe says pending)

                P0137 oxygen sensor
                circuit Low voltage
                bank 1 sensor 2 (dupe says pending)

                P0151 oxygen sensor
                circuit low voltage
                bank 2 sensor 1 Dupe says pending

                P0171 BANK 1 System too lean (dupe says pending)


                Getting all 4 oxygen sensors will correct the problem or is there something else to worry about?

                  A:

                  The Code P0151 is essentially the same as P0136 and P0137 and P0131, a P0151 code refers to the first oxygen sensor on Bank 2. P0151 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 2 Sensor 1 should be located in front of the catalytic converter.
                  There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.
                  Causes: A code P0151 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
                  1. Faulty O2 oxygen sensor.
                  2. Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit.
                  3. High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit.
                  Possible diagnosis:
                  1. Replace faulty sensor.
                  2. Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit.
