  • Newbie here with a lambda question.

    Hello guys, I'm Mike. I bought an Astra VXR a few months ago which i believe the two previous owners are members on here.

    I am from suffolk and have been a keen Vaux enthusiast since passing my test. Some of my previous vauxhalls are: Nova 1.2 GSi Replica, Corsa 1.4 Sport, Corsa GSi 1.6 16v, another Corsa GSI which i put a 2.0 Turbo engine in, an Astra Coupe Turbo and Now m VXR.

    Am i allowed to post pictures hosted from other sites?

    Anyway my EML came on a couple of weeks ago so i thought id buy the '******' Ebay diagnostics.

    I'm getting the following codes: P0141-0D 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
    P0136-04 02 Sensor Circuit Range/Performance (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

    I have read various threads about a lambda sensor spacer. Would this cure my problem or is the sensor faulty? I can get a genuine Bosch Sensor for £75 so im not too fussed if it is.

    Also the car is completely standard apart from the Pre-cat has been replaced with a decat. Would this cause the problem im getting?

      Post was moderated - you guys wouldn't see anything only the staff would, it picked up on one of the spam words that it checks for in Newbie posts, "Ebay" in this case

            You don't need an O2 spacer for the precat removal. You appear to just have a faulty sensor.

                    +1.

                    I had P0141-0D amongst others and it was a broken wire on the 2nd sensor.

                      I am right in thinking that it is the cat sensor? where abouts is that plugged in? i can easily see where the pre-cat sensor is plugged in but cant find where the cat one is?

                            it plugs in at the back of the engine. If you get the car on a ramp you can easily trace it back.

                              as said it plugs in down the back of the engine you can feel it if you stick your arm down but you will need to get underneath to replace it anyway.

                              Also cheaper sensor on vauxhall world parts its a genuine part for around £65 the site is down at the moment though
