Having A Front O2 Sensor Error?
P0132 Fix – Burning Deposits off the O2 Sensor
MVS Forums user ajr2820 writes: “My 99 V70XC was giving a P0132 code which relates to the front oxygen sensor. It was reading near static at 0.45. This can mean that the sensor is bad or it is sooted up. In order to see if it was indeed bad, I created a lean condition in order to increase the temperature of the sensor by disconnecting the brake booster vacuum line. I ran it this way for @ 2 minutes.This created a lean condition which evidently burned the deposits off of the sensor. It worked! All conditions read normal now. This was done without removing the sensor!” Front O2 Sensor Error
