I wish i was the one with a code reader but unfortunatly i do not own one. The dealer who i bought the car from told me it was the 02 sensor "bank one sensoe one". check engine light is on but the car runs fine. if you think i should buy a code reader, wich one would you recomend? thanks for the help.
So I went to my local Autozone and had the code read. It came out as P0134. They told me it was the 02 sensor. I got a list of different brand 02 sensors but havent bought anything yet. I wanted to get some feed back before i made any purchase. On a side note, if i did replace the 02 sensor and had a leak somewhere in the exhuast, would it still set off my check engine light? I dont think i have a leak but anything is possible. Thanks for the help.
The wiring is good on my 02 sensor so I am going to buy a new one. My local subaru dealer says they do not have the part in stock and that it would be 3-5 buisness days before they could get one in for me($179.00).
Is there a recommended online store that I could get the same oem part from? (Part # 22641AA36A)Thanks.
Try these. since your dealer is out. Interesting that they are using so many of these they can not keep them in stock. I just replaced mine yesterday. Purchased from the dealer and installed by a shop... long story, but I am troubleshooting low MPG after replacing my timing belt.
Well, I would just like to say all of your help paid off. I installed the new oem 02 sensor two days ago and havent had any issues yet. It took about a half hour and was a very easy fix. Mpg's have increased and check engine light has stayed off. Thanks again guys for all of your help.:29:
The AF sensor life is 75-100k miles, sometimes higher.
If it is plugged in and there are no other codes, replace the front sensor. Use a Bosch or Denso OE fit. After replacement, pull the negative cable to reset the ECM and clear the light or go back to the parts store and have them clear it with the scan tool. The drive cycle should reset all the emission monitors within 25 miles of driving unless the ECM sees a problem in one of the monitor areas.
Yes, the part I used was #22641AA36A, the 02 sensor on the down stream. It is a denso 02 sensor ,oem. I dissconnected the negative terminal on the battery prior to doing any work. I removed the old 02 sensor after warming the engine so it was easier to remove. After intalling the new sensor I connected the battery and no check engine light. Its been about twenty drive cycles and the light is still off.
