My sense is that these components last somewhat longer than first anticipated, probably because of the leaner mixtures we're using, and the no-lead gas. It can be expensive. But you probably could change out the oxygen sensor yourself. It's usually accessible, and it ain't brain surgery. The converter is another matter. Good Luck i had a metro with 250000 with original convertor and 02 the convertor is built into a section of pipe you get the whole thing for 150$ and replace it with four bolts and believe it or not the bolts usually are removable without having to use a torch
One O2 sensor is on the manifold after the first catalytic converter and the other O2 is downstream behind the second catalytic converter (middle of vehicle body underneath).
I have a 99 Metro 1.3L. This car has two oxygen sensors, one in the exhaust manifold and the other is after the Catalytic Converter. Hope that helps.
They are blue, black and white. They can be found extending from the catalytic converter (the upstream O2 sensor) and possibly from a second source (the downstream sensor).
It has 1 O2 sensor located on the exhaust manifold befor the catalytic converter
One. The stock Geo Metro from 1995 and on consists of a catalytic converter a resonator and the muffler. In sure it holds true for the earlier models as well
I have a 1998 Metro with the 1.3l and the Camshaft Position Sensor is located on the bottom of the oil pan.
that must be some metro to have a big block
In front of and behind the catalytic converter.
It is inside of the transmission.
the seal on the crank shaft needs replaced
This code is generic and is the same on all vehicles. P0420 = Catalyst System Efficiency Below ThresholdCatalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold. This means that the secondary O2 sensor detects that the catalytic converter isn't working as efficiently as it should. This engine code can be triggered by any one of the following: 1.) The catalyst in the catalytic converter is cracked, clogged, or otherwise damaged. 2.) The secondary O2 sensor is malfunctioning. 3.) There is an exhaust leak. 4.) The computer unit is faulty
it is located on the head
It is possible as the signal from the oxygen sensor is sent to the computer
connected to the air cleaner housing
LOL, some dont have crank sensors my friend! if you dont have a crank sensor by your oil pan then you have a bad distributor sensor!
O2 sensor CKT No Activity (Bank 1 Sensor 1)

metro pcs is the best server,you people should get metro it is good for a lot of people. :) :) :) :) :)
It will be screwed into the exhaust pipe somewhere between the exhaust manifold and the catalytic converter. Most likely on the front of the engine on the bottom, sticking out fron the pipe with a wire coming out of it. some were after the cat converter. my 94 is before the cat converter, but the 94 is also a split year I think. I dont know which way they were moving them (before or after). Mine sticks straight out of the exaust pipe about 6 inches below where it mounts to the manifold. If it were after the converter it would definatly be under the car on the exaust pipe.
there are two 02 sensors on a 97 they are easy to replace,i have seen these sensors for around 90$ which is high for an 02 sensor but can easily be done yourself, if you can find a low mileage one in a junk yard you could do it for a few dollars
on a 3 cyl.metro,the iat sensor is found on the air cleaner housing towards the rear of the assembly
you gotta take the old one out first
It is in the diistributor.
It should be capitalized if you are referring to a specific metro system.
