    I have had a code 1 flashing on my ecu for awhile now. Its getting old. I lose power the car stutters when the cel kicks after the car drives for about 5 mins. I have replaced the o2 sensor works for about 15 mins. then kicks it again. My mechanic told me that possibly because I have headers and an exhaust with no cat just a resonator and test pipe back to the muffler its not allowing the o2 sensor to heat up enough causing it to kick. Anyone have any suggestions its upsetting when I lose power.:(

    listen to your mechanic - try relocating the O2 sensor closer to the head

    the o2 sensor has been in the same place since I got the car thats why I'm confused. it just all of sudden started and I can't get it to go away. I've replaced the o2 sensor, reset the ecu. its so odd.

    I got an aftermarket bosch. I didn't have a problem before though when I replaced it when I first got the car.

    I don't have a 4 wire o2 sensor its a single wire. but thanks for the info and one thing that caught my eye is that when I do stay in second gear and go wide open throttle the o2 sensor does kick.

    I was also looking at advanced auto last night and the beck o2 sensor looks more like the oem. Any ideas if beck is a good quality?
