SES help please
So i took a stroll through the mountains today and SES light kicked on, so i stopped at my shop and picked up a code reader and here is what i got:
p0131 o2 circuit low volts bank 1 sensor 1.
What do i need to do replace o2 sensor?

most likely unless you have o2 extensions,cuz they can sometimes go bad

Drive's side front sensor. You can wait but you'll need a new one sooner or later.

It can wait,.....and it may not be a bad sensor,,,I would remove it,,,check the end of it,,,then check out the connector pins/receptacle and befire sticking it back in fill connector up with dieletric grease,,,
I had a few front end os sensor codes happen,,and al I did was remove them,,clean..replace them with diectric grease and have not had a failure on front end sensors for years...
NOW after install of my LM exhaust,,,I have a lazy post cat os sensor,,and its not the sensor,,,its just the way it goes when you change something,,something else can pick up on it ot alter things a abit.,
Its time for a dyno and code delete of all POST CAT codes,,,

Your mpg's will be affected because that is an afr sensor. But like mentioned above, drivers side sensor before the cat

try switching the front o2s with one another. Then plug in the obd and see if the code follows to the opposite bank. If it does then replace the o2.

PB Blaster and let it sit over night. When you put them back in make sure you put a small amount of anti-seize on the threads so theyre easier to remove next time

If you didn't live in Utah I'd be interested. I'm trying to sell my 250f bike to buy a 450 quad.

fuck how did you do that. Out of all the times iv taken o2s out (and im on my 3rd ls1) iv never striped them out. Can you still swap them and see if the code follows to the opposite side?
