Well Im not exactly postive that this is the right forum to post this, so move it if need be mods.
Ok, so my car started doin this weird bucking thing, and then it got really bad, to the point where the car almost is undrivable. Finally the check engine light came on, so I scanned for DTC's and it threw a P0133. Does any one have any idea as to what this might be? Or any idea of where I might be able to find out what it means?

po133 should be a missfire on cyl 3, if I remember right, lemme check

Nope I was wrong, p0133 is O2 sensor slow response bank 1 sensor 1 (the pre-cat O2 sensor)

thing must be running rich to buck that bad.

I figured it was something with the a/f. It seemed like it was running rich the way it was popping. Well I will replace it tommorrow now, thanks for the help guys.

mine started setting this code after I installed a K&N air filter but in never bucked or had any driveability problems I just cleared it and I have had it come back once but it was pending so the light didn't come on

^^^I just got this code as well. This is the second time it has done this, but this is over a span of 4 months or so. Last time I flashed back to stock to take it to the dealership but it wouldn't come back on....[???:)]
blck01zx3, when you said you replaced it, did you take it to the dealership? Did you flash back to stock?

No I didnt take it to the dealership, I just replaced the pre-cat O2 sensor. Then I disconnected the battery and the code went away. I still have a little bucking and popping, but no where near as bad, Im just gonna wait it out and see if it goes away. If not,.... well we will see.
