ford explorer p0059 code

P0059 .02 sensor heater control circuit draw. 02 heater resistance What this means is the 02 is shorted or open or ECM . 2nd bank sensor one. What concern me is rough accleration,either the ECM subsituted a value to protect the catalytic or you do have a engine miss and P0059 under rationality ,logic appeared.I have to say your solution is to replace 02 sensor on the second bank.To find the second bank stand in front of the vehicle the valve cover closest to the front is bank one the valve cover fartherst from the front is bank two.

cannot figure out the firing order for my 1991 isuzu rodeo

Facing towards front of engine-number 1 is on passenger side front cyl of engine. Number 2 is front cyl on driver's side-number 3 middle cyl on passenger side-4 on middle cyl driver's side-5 on back cyl passenger side and 6 on back cyl driver's side. The distributer rotates COUNTER CLOCKWISE-number 1 cyl's sparkplug wire attaches to distributer cap connection closest to number 5 cyl.-to your right side of this plug wire on cap would go cyl number 2-then 3-then 4-then 5 and then 6. The firing order is:1,2,3,4,5,6
