Decoding P0133: Understanding Your Vehicle’s Oxygen Sensor”

P0133

When the internal combustion engine has ignited the air and fuel mixture in its cylinders, exhaust fumes leave the cylinders. Some of them get recycled back into the engine while others leave out the tailpipe. The amount of oxygen remaining in the fumes is detected by the oxygen sensor. This information is then communicated from
