2011 ford mustang gt pcm codes

Car has been idling like crap recently, plugged my sct and got the following codes:
p2195 and p2626

Does this mean i need to change my bank1 o2 sensor?

Im running longtubes with offroad xpipe for two years.

Any suggestions are appreciated

Do you have a catch can (oil seperator)? If so, check for a leak. A leak in the PCV system can cause a code P2195. The code P2626 'could' be a dirty MAF sensor. Buy and use a spray can of MAF cleaner sold at autopart stores. Be very careful with the MAF sensor, it can break easy.

I just checked the catch can, no leaks.
Do you think its the o2 sensor or the connections?

P2195 O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean (Bank 1 Sensor 1) Code

OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description

O2 A/F Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean (Bank 1 Sensor 1)

What does that mean?

This code is a generic powertrain code. It is considered generic because it applies to all makes and models of vehicles (1996-newer), although specific repair steps may be slightly different depending on the model.



On some vehicles, such as Toyotas, this is actually referring to A/F sensors, Air/Fuel ratio sensors. Which are basically more sensitive versions of oxygen sensors.

The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the air/fuel ratio of the exhaust using oxygen (O2) sensors, and tries to keep things at the normal air/fuel ratio of 14.7:1 via the fuel system. The oxygen A/F sensor outputs a voltage reading that the PCM uses. This DTC is set when the air/fuel ratio as read by the PCM has strayed so far from 14.7:1 that the PCM can no longer correct it.

Bank #1 is the side of the engine that contains cylinder #1. This code specifically refers to the sensor between the engine and catalytic converter (not the one behind it).

Note: This DTC is very similar to P2196, P2197, P2198. If you have multiple DTC codes, always fix them in the order they appear.

Symptoms

For this DTC, the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will illuminate. There may be other symtoms.

Causes

Potential causes of a P2195 code include:
•Oxygen (O2) or A/F ratio sensor or sensor heater malfunction
•Open or short in O2 sensor circuit (wiring, harness)
•Fuel pressure or fuel injector problem
•Faulty PCM
•Intake air or engine vacuum leaks
•Faulty fuel injector(s)
•Fuel pressure too high or too low
•PCV system leak/fault
•A/F sensor relay faulty
•MAF sensor malfunction
•ECT sensor malfunction
•Fuel pressure too low
•Fuel leak
•Air suction in air intake system

Diagnostic Steps & Possible Solutions

Use a scan tool to get readings from the sensor, and monitor the short and long term fuel trim values and O2 sensor or Air Fuel Ratio sensor readings. Also, look at the freeze frame data to see the conditions at the time the code was set. That should help determine if the O2 AF sensor is operating correctly. Compare with manufacturers values.

If you don’t have access to a scan tool, you could use a multimeter and back-probe the terminals on the O2 sensor wiring connector. Check for shorts to ground, short to power, open circuits, etc. Compare specs with manufacturers specifications.

Visually inspect the wiring & connectors leading to the sensor, check for loose connectors, wires rubbed/chaffed, melted wires, etc. Repair as necessary.

Visually inspect vacuum lines. You can also test for vacuum leaks using propane or carburetor cleaner along the hoses while the engine is running, if the RPMs change you likely found the leak. Be very careful if doing that, and have a fire extinguisher within reach in case something goes wrong. For example, on a bunch of Ford vehicles, the hose that goes from the PCV to the throttle body can melt causing P2195, P2197, P0171, and/or P0174 codes. If a vacuum leak is determined to be the problem, it would be prudent to replace all vacuum lines if they are getting older, becoming brittle, etc.

Use a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) to check other sensors mentioned such as MAF, IAT, for proper operation.

Perform a fuel pressure test, verify readings against manufacturers specification.

If you’re on a budget and you only have an engine with more than one bank and the problem is only with one bank, you could swap the sensor from one bank to the other, clear the code, and see if the code is followed to the other bank. That would tell you it is the sensor/heater itself that’s failed.

Check for outstanding technical service bulletins (TSB) for your vehicle, in some cases the PCM can be recalibrated to fix this (not a common fix though). TSBs could also call for replacement of the sensor.

When replacing oxygen / AF sensors, be sure to use a high quality ones. In many cases non-OEM sensors are of lesser quality and will not perform correctly. We strongly recommend you stick with OEM brand replacements.
