What does that mean?: A Heated Exhaust Oxygen (HO2S) 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.
Symptoms: You will likely not notice any drivability problems.
Causes: A code P1151 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Short to VPWR in the harness or HO2S
Water in the 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)
