September 17, 2020 P0036 Code: P0036 HO2S Heater Control Circuit (Bank 1 Sensor 2)The downstream (post-converter) HO2S primarily gets used for post catalyst monitoring. It does this by checking the oxygen content of the exhaust gas after exiting the catalytic converter. Each HO2S compares the oxygen content of the surrounding air with the oxygen content in the exhaust stream.
September 16, 2020 P0120 Code: Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor “A” CircuitA TP sensor measures your throttle blade opening. The number of TP sensors may vary depending on your vehicle’s make and model. For example, older vehicles that have mechanical throttle linkage are equipped with only one TP sensor. On the other hand, vehicles with electronic throttle control (ETC) are equipped September 16, 2020 P0715 Code: Input/Turbine Speed Sensor “A” CircuitError code P0715 is a generic trouble code, so it is supported in various makes and models. However, keep in mind that the repair and diagnostic procedures for each may vary depending on the specific vehicle you own.

September 16, 2020 P0522 Code: Engine Oil Pressure Sensor/Switch “A” Circuit LowIn most applications, the engine oil pressure switch is a simple pressure switch that receives a reference voltage from the PCM. The pressure-sensing mechanism in the switch is in direct contact with the oil that circulates throughout the engine. This means that any changes in the oil pressure produce an September 16, 2020 P0307 Code: Cylinder #7 Misfire DetectedRemember that the efficient burning of air and fuel is essential to engine operation. Without the proper combustion of the air/fuel mixture, the engine won’t run properly or won’t run at all.
