P0133 OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Oxygen Sensor Circuit Slow Response (Bank1, Sensor1) What does that mean?
This involves the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1. This code indicates the engine air fuel ratio is not being adjusted by the oxygen sensor signal or the ECM as expected to do so, or not adjusted as often as expected to do so once the engine is warmed or under normal engine use.
Symptoms You will likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms.
Causes A code P0133 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: The oxygen sensor is faulty The wiring to the sensor is broken / frayed There is an exhaust leak
Possible Solutions The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back (Echos what White03GT said)
. If the code comes back, the problem is more than likely the front Bank 1 oxygen sensor.
You will likely wind up replacing it but you should also consider these possible solutions:
Check and fix any exhaust leaks
Check for wiring problems (shorted, frayed wires)
Check the frequency and amplitude of the oxygen sensor (advanced)
Check for a deteriorating / contaminated oxygen sensor, replace if necessary
Check for inlet air leaks
Check the MAF sensor for proper operation
