I have a 2001 Exrursion 5.4L V8. The code P1131 comes up and it says "Lack of upstream heated oxygen sensor switch - secsor indicates lean - bank #1". I hear it could be the sensor that is bad or there is a vacume leak. It runs like a champ, no spitting, no sputtering, no missing, no ruff iddle. What do I need to do to fix it or where do i need to start looking? Thanks.

P1130 - Lack of HO2S-11 Switch, Fuel Trim at Limit The HEGO Sensor is monitored for switching. The test fails when the HO2S fails to switch due to circuit or fuel at or exceeding a calibrated limit. Electrical:
Short to VPWR in harness or HO2S
Water in harness connector
Open/Shorted HO2S circuit
Corrosion or poor mating terminals and wiring
Excessive fuel pressure
Leaking/contaminated fuel injectors
Leaking fuel pressure regulator
Low fuel pressure or running out of fuel
Vapor recovery system
Air leaks after the MAF
Improperly seated engine oil dipstick
Stuck EGR valve
Leaking diaphragm or EVR
Exhaust leaks before or near the HO2S(s)
A fuel control HO2S PID switching across 0.45 volt from 0.2 to 0.9 volt indicates a normal switching HO2S.
P1131 - Lack of HO2S-11 Switch, Sensor Indicates Lean A HEGO sensor indicating lean at the end of a test is trying to correct for an over-rich condition. The test fails when the fuel control system no longer detects switching for a calibrated amount of time. See Possible Causes for DTC P1130
I got that code twice so far. Reset the pcm and it went away. I'm still considering replacing both O2 sensors but i'll likely wait to see if this thread takes off and can provide me with a bit more insight. The.last thing I wanna do is just start throwing parts (and $$) at the truck.
