couple of engine codes

p0133 and p0401

now i already know what they are, just trying to figure out what i need to do to fix them. p0133 says its bank 1 slow response, which o2 sensor is bank one? i assume its the one before the cat. also says it could be an exhaust leak. unfortunatly i DO have a crack in my header right where one of the ports is welded up to the flange that bolts it into the head. so should i just replace the o2 sensor or think i need to get a new header. (which im not totally opposed to)
seconldly the p0401 was pending, and thats the egr system. that one i would guess i could clean the egr valve? but i dont know.
can anyone provide a little insight/experience. oh and before it gets brought up i cant just block off the egr cause im an ATLien and i have to get emissions done. but thats not till september.

Re: couple of engine codes

P0401: first try cleaning your EGR out, its the cheapest route to fixing this error. also check all of your vacuum hoses leading to and from the valve.

P0133: bank 1 is the first one, i would take that header somewhere and get it welded up before you buy a new o2 sensor that leak could be whats causing the faulty readings.

btw, when you try each of these things dont forget to take the negative battery cable for a few min so that it resets the comp.

Re: couple of engine codes

what do you reccomend cleaning the egr with? carb cleaner? and the crack in my header is real small and i dont think its leaking. (no carbon blowout around crack)
