Been researching the net for a few hours trying to figure out what to do. Got a '07 Versa SL. My Versa has recently been acting up on me. I would drive to work get on the highway for a few miles then when I get off and have to stop, I would go to put my foot on the gas to accelerate and when it gets to about 20 MPH, it would sputter then when I keep my foot down it kicks back in (not very safe especially if you have to turn). I've tried taking my foot off and put it back on to see if that helped nope. So I went and took it in at Autozone to get a reading and I got three codes. p0030/p0130/p1148. Right now I have an rusted pipe that connects to the muffler and to the other part rusted off. I forgot the name for it and it's driving me nuts to be honest. Could that be the issue. I am 4 months away from paying this car off and this happens. I've done my best to keep it in good shape on time with oil changes and fluids, not driving like an jack ass. I'm basically live to work, College screwed me got a degree that I can't do anything with. My funds are limited and I am hoping I can get some answers from one of you folks. Hopefully someone can help. Please and Thanks.

Yes it's CVT. I truly appreciate your help TubTub. My brother in law says Fuel Filter, My Uncle Says Throttle Position Sensor. My car hasn't stalled or shut off in any way. yet. (if that helps) I'm a Barber self employed, I can't risk myself getting hurt, there's no Sick Days or Time off in this trade when you are self employed. I don't make much, but enough to make car payment, rent on apt and rent on chair which is more than rent for my apt. So I figured I would take a shot and ask on here, since y'all have a Passion for the Versa. It's my first Brand new car when I got it in 07 and treated her like my baby and now she's sick and IDK how to fix it. I'm deaf so I am waiting for my cousin to get home so he can listen to the fuel pump to see if that's it (read you can listen to see if it's working properly or not). BTW this isn't something that would be caused by a bad muffler is it? Thanks again!

Suggest that you go onto the Autozone site and plug your model and year to get an idea what the O2 sensors cost. They also have a do it yourself video on how to change it and also they will rent you the tool which is refundable. Ask them to clear the codes and see if they can determine which sensor is the problem. ( If that is the problem) up stream or down stream.

btw what does 'Lengthened time needed to achieve closed loop' mean?
it means the engine cannot run off the sensors it can only run off its base programing and minimal input from certain sensors. A car usually runs in open loop till it warms up and all the sensors can be read with accuracy. Its saying its having a hard time heating up and reading the o2 sensor.

The codes listed state upstream as the downstream is used mainly for emissions reduction. Bank 1 sensor 1 (4 cyl=1bank, sensor 1= first from engine)

I'm betting either the o2 itself is shot or the wiring. If you have a crack or leak in your exhaust manifold that too can cause this. Is your rusted disconnected pipe near the front 02 or is it further down the exhaust system.

Are there any leaks in the exhaust before either of the 2 oxygen sensors? If so that can throw them and and make them read as though they are failing.

If not, replace the primary sensor first and see how that works. Then change the 2nd o2 sensor if the problem is not resolved. Also, make sure the cat convertor isnt clogged.

I will post a pic when I get the change of my muffler. it's the part that connects to the muffler to the rest. before it was fine wasn't causing any issues. had it welded but the winters up in Buffalo are brutal. especially in the City and it came undone yet again. been trying to save up money to replace that piece but i forgot the name and it's still has yet to come to me what the name was. Thanks All for helping me!

How do I find the O2 sensor? Looked online to find a good report on how to do so usually youtube has the videos but not for this. Btw how do I check if the cat convertor is clogged?

Thanks ALL for your input/help! I'm feeling much better about this whole issue.

Exhaust flange?

Mine rusted and was causing the car to run very loudly. I took it to an exhaust shop, and they were able to weld a new piece on for $50. Now the car runs as quiet as it did before!

Hopefully you get these things fixed!

Hi welcome to the forum!

what's your current mileage? (just wondering)

during brutal winters, all that salt they put on the roads to help melt the ice can cause problems. at the carwash select the undercarriage wash to help wash the salt off.


take a picture if you can of that piece on the exhaust that is rusted just to see what it looks like
Thanks!

Edit: never mind, I see it now =)

Something to keep in mind,I know everybody is jumping in the sensors.........Look at the sensor wiring too. chaffing wires will send codes as if the part itself is defective.
I had a wire chaffing above the exhaust(where I couldn't see) and after the quick disconnect drove me nuts.
You can test the O2 sensor with a OHM meter and heating the sensor end and reading the output that is within the manufactures specs. if outside readings defective O2 sensor.

Does it matter to use a Denso Sensor or a Bosch Sensor? I've heard to use Bosch others will cause issues. Not sure. I think someone mentioned it earlier in the post.
