If memory serves, high voltage o2 sensors means that your engine is running rich. It could indeed be a bad o2 sensor, but I would be checking out that fuel system and such. Have you noticed any decreased mileage/performance? If you have the means, test the o2 sensors, and look for things like leaky injectors and such. I'm sure some other help is on its way to this thread!

These codes indicate a short to voltage on the 1/1 and 1/2 sensors. It's possible you could have some wires melted to the exhaust so check that carefully before shelling out for new sensors.

from what i read,
check for a short as Randy mentioned, he is usually right
next check to see if your fuel settings are close to correct, you may be wasting fuel
then check out your sensors
P0132 is O2 Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank 1 Sensor 1)
P0138 is O2 Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

I dont know how to check to see how my gas mileage is. I know its horrible tho. My manual says high voltage as one of you mentioned so thats what im guessing. The truck does run like garbage tho. Iv had it for 3 months and it always has. If im cruisin at like 50 its at like 1000Rpms. If i try and accelerate it kinda boggs and wont accelerate. The only way it will move any more is if i put it all the way to the floor

Sounds like you have a high (numerically low) gear ratio. You can find out what gears you have from a tag bolted to the rear diff housing cover.

So i just checked out my truck and i have ZERO o2 sensors. I found the clip to clip an 02 sensor into that is tucked around a bracket near the tranny to precvent hanging. My exhaust consisit of a dual flowmaster and no cat converter. I have no idea where the placement of that o2 sensor is or if there is another one upstream. Theres no bungs so im going to havt to get one welded on but need to know where and what to do about having no cat ??

Installing bungs and sensors will work fine for the upstream sensors but you need to fool the PCM into thinking the downstream sensors are in place and working. You can install bungs and spark plug antifoulers and screw the downstream sensors into those and it should work.
