First diagnose P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA code

    Check the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded terminals.

P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA Tech Notes

Replacing the Rear Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 2 usually takes care of the problem.

Cost of diagnosing the P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA code

    Labor: 1.0

    The cost of diagnosing the P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary widely across the country, and even within the same city. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

When is the P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA code detected?

The P0158 code is set when the Engine Control Module (ECM) detects that the rear O2 sensor signal voltage remains excessively high for an extended period of time.

P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA Possible Symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
  • Possible higher than usual fuel consumption

P0158 2007 NISSAN SENTRA Meaning

The heated oxygen sensor 2 (HO2S), after three way catalyst (manifold), monitors the oxygen level in the exhaust gas on each bank. For optimum catalyst operation, the air fuel mixture (air-fuel ratio) must be maintained near the ideal stoichiometric ratio. The HO2S output voltage changes suddenly in the vicinity of the stoichiometric ratio. The Engine Control Module (ECM) adjusts the fuel injection time so that the air-fuel ratio is nearly stoichiometric. The HO2S generates a voltage between 0.1 and 0.9 V in response to oxygen in the exhaust gas. If the oxygen in the exhaust gas increases, the air-fuel ratio becomes Lean. The ECM interprets Lean when the HO2S voltage is below 0.45 V. If the oxygen in the exhaust gas decreases, the air-fuel ratio becomes Rich. The ECM interprets Rich when the HO2S voltage is above 0.45 V.
