Oxygen sensor


New member
I have a 2008 Infiniti EX 35. Recently the service engine light went on and I saw codes P0051 (Heater Control Circuit Low Bank 2 Sensor 1), P0150 (O2 Sensor Circuit (Bank 2 Sensor 1). After doing some research I decided to replace the Bank 2 Sensor 1 oxygen sensor. I replaced the sensor with an NTK 25685 from Rock Auto.

After replacing the sensor the Short Term Fuel Trim for Bank 2 is basically pegged at 25 with the exception of dropping to 0 for a few seconds every minute or so. This happens if the engine is at idle or at most any RPM.

I am now getting an error code of P0174 System too Lean (Bank 2).

I bought the NTK sensor from Rock Auto because, in my research, I saw people recommending to buy the OEM sensor because the non-OEM sensors can cause problems. It seems like the new sensor is not working correctly. I considered trying to swap with the bank one sensor but it is very difficult to get at.

Any thoughts on what I might do to figure out what is going on would be very much appreciated.
