I'm not understanding the code of 20, your 1997 Saturn has an OBDII computer. you need a code reader to get engine codes. you cannot pull codes manually by shorting terminals A-B anymore. every one of your engine codes is atleast 3 digits, and should start with P. for example: a faulty oxygen sensor with no responce will show a code of P0134, or a EGR with insufficient flow will show a code of P0401.


My code book shows that an OBDII code of P0020 is a camsharft position actuator circuit bank 2. you have a sensor problem or your cam chain has stretched beyond the tensioner's ability to remove slack. I was getting camshaft position errors and had to replace the cam chain and tensioner.

Q: Help with my 97 Saturn SL2. SES light comes on at speeds of 50 or higher. I've replaced both O2 sensors. The code reads 20 which is something to do with emissions. Any suggestions?

As far as I know there is 2 02 sensors if you look into the wheel well with the tires turned you can see them just to the back of the manifolds. They should be pointing straight up. I just replaced the o2 sensors in my 98 and there was 2. It may depend on if you have standard or CA/MA emissions. My truck has one with standard emissions. The same truck in CA or MA has two. 95 f150 5.8

How many oxygen sensors are on a jeep 4.0 engine?

Most 4.0L engines with federal emissions have two oxygen sensors located on the exhaust pipe before the muffler. One sensor is mounted before the catalyst (upstream) and one is mounted after the catalyst (downstream). Most 4.0L engines with California emissions have four oxygen sensors. These are mounted in the exhaust manifold area. Two are upstream and two are downstream. There is an emissions label under the hood of the vehicle that identifies the emissions type.

How do you control automobile exhaust?

The ECM (Engine Control Module) controls the exhaust emissions with information it receives from various sensors.

What controls the converter on a 1999 escort?

The oxygen sensors control the amount fuel in the engine and if it is making too many emissions the oxygen sensors will cut back on the fuel or if they are worn out they will increase the amount of fuel. The catalytic converter will eventually get plugged up if the Oxygen sensors are bad. The oxygen sensors control the converter.
