P1131 bank 1 indicates the fuel/air ratio is correcting rich for an overly lean condition.
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0133 and P0153 indicates the response rate of the upstream HO2S(s) is below some calibrated window. The test measures the HO2S amplitude and output frequency. This is accomplished by superimposing a 1.5 to 2.5 Hz square wave over Lambse. The HO2S switching is monitored during this time to see if the calibration limit is met. P0133 is also bank 1.
Although these codes could be caused by several things such as vacuum leaks,fuel contamination,exhaust leaks,miss-fires,etc. Since it is localized on only bank one I would replace that front(upper in the exhaust to back cylinder head) 02 sensor and see if that did not correct my concern.

The clue to all your problems is the engine light being on. It is correctly called an 'engine malfunction light'. When you attach an OBD11 scanner to the vehicle, it will give you a P-Code and tell you exactly what is wrong. Garages will usually read the code for free in the hope of getting the work. It literally takes less than 2 minutes.

Spark plugs last nearly the life of the vehicle these days.

your misfire is a known problem!

How do you retrieve codes from 1990 ford taurus gl without dianostic computer. trying to help niece with car she bought. she can't afford to take into shop


You can buy a cheap dongle (less then $40 -- http://www.autoditto.com/cheap-obd-ii-scanner.html) (at Canadian Tire, and I think Walmart) where it'll tell you what error code is activated and then you can erase all codes along with a few other options, nice to have if you use it a lot. Otherwise the shop is the next place (Unless you know someone with an OBD II reader -- which is a more deluxe version then what I was explaining previously)
OR
You can DIY for $6 using http://hackaday.com/2007/11/07/inexpensive-pic-based-obd-2-interface/

P0401. P0133, P1131- emmision test


Based on what the tech manuals say I would change the DPFE sensor for the EGR Valve, careful not to tear the special silicone rubber hoses that go to it from the exhaust, as a Ford dealer tech I saw these codes allot, and the DPFE sensor was almost always the issue or the hoses going to it.
