Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, with 77000 miles on it.  Check engine light comes
on and then goes out after driving it for a while.  When we take it to Advance Auto Parks
to see what the check engine light reads it says bad oxygen sensor,  we have had that
replaced twice.  When pulling out of a parking spot (I always back in) it hesitates, after
pushing the gas pedal several times it then takes off.  What does that mean?

O2 sensor code doesn't always mean to replace the sensor, it means the sensor is decking a problem. What was the 4 digit code and what other work was done on the car?


I have had the steering rack replaced and a tune-up. I don't know the code, my husband might remember it.


Tom, I went and got the check engine light checked this morning. The code is (P0132) The person told me Oxygen Sensor, Circuit High, Voltage Bank 1 Sensor 1. Hope this helps and you can help me.
