Hi, place the Cobalt in "Park" on a level surface. Allow the Chevy to sit for 10 minutes. This will allow components to cool enough to touch but still be warm, which is ideal for replacing the oxygen sensor. Open the hood of the Cobalt and identify the oxygen sensor. Look for a white, rubber, plug-type sensor on the passenger side of the exhaust manifold; this is the oxygen sensor. Use a socket wrench paired with an oxygen sensor socket to loosen the sensor. Turn the wrench counter-clockwise until the oxygen sensor is loose. Remove the sensor from the manifold by pulling it off. The sensor will come off without much force. Insert the replacement oxygen sensor onto the manifold. Secure the sensor by pushing it into place until the sensor clicks. Close the hood of the Cobalt.
Take care

I always star by lubricating the sensor with a spray lubricant or penetrating oil,then locate the wiring harness on the one you are changing since there are more than one;There is a tool that fits the sensor you may have to buy unless you can find one in your shop, by trying it on the new one you are using to replace the old one with., Turn it counter-clockwise gently until it breaks loose. Access may be a problem. Once you have the old one out, installation is the reverse. Adhere to torque specs. The location is usually on the exhaust manifold before and some after the catalytic conveter Some are located on the exhaust pipe after the manifold. Chevy cobalt has one located betweenthe engine and firewall just under the hood.

How many O2 sensors does a 2005 Chevy Cobalt base model 4 cylinder have


Oxygen sensors are identified by bank and sensor position. Sensor 1 is always pre catalytic converter, sensor two is always post catalytic converter. If an engine is a 4 or 6 cylinder engine the whole engine is considered bank 1, if an engine is a V6, V8, V10....., the engine bank containing cylinder number 1 (first cylinder in the firing order) is considered Bank 1, the other bank is considered Bank 2. Interpretation Oxygen sensor designation B2S1 refers to Bank 2 Sensor 1, it will be the sensor on the engine side of the catalytic converter in bank two. Check this link to determine the cylinder that contains cylinder number 1. http://www.wellsve.com/custom_searches/ds_firing.php Wells Search Parts Catalog

O2 sensor


if your engine light is on and your gas cap is tight, and if you had the codes checked on the computer and it say's o2 sensor, this is an emissions problem, the parts are generally around 100.00 usd, and labor another 100.00 usd. but your car will not pass an emissions test until you do. However it will not ruin your engine, keep your window cracked just in case you are getting o2 in the cabin

P134, p0141, po300, po130 and po135. 2005 Sunfire.


Given that most of the trouble codes are for the O2 sensor, I think I would change it. The multiple misfires could be because of improper fuel/air mixture caused by a bad sensor. Disconnect the negative(-) battery terminal then change the sensor. Disconnecting the negative(-) should reset the computer and allow the fuel/air mixture to return to default allowing the engine to start.
P0130 - O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0134 - O2 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0135 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0141 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
