On a Volkswagen Beetle 1999 2.0 is the first cylinder considered upstream or Downstream when replacing the O2 sensor I'm getting a error code reading of P0171 system too lean (Bank 1)

code p 0171 refers to system too lean bank 1=== causes ---intake /exhaust leak---AIR system--MAF/VAF sensor---fuel pressure/pump---injector/s---heated oxygen (HO2S) sensor
the HO2S is the unit that controls the mixture and is located in the exhaust manifold / pipe before the cat converter

the oxygen (O2S) is just like a final trim and reads the cat converter operation and is located after the cat converter

bank one is closest to the fire wall

Why am i getting engine code p0421 on this 2002 mitsubishi lancer?

this code is lazy cat (or weak or dead)420's are very hard to diagnose
here is the order.
1: NO EXHAUST leaks near any oxy sensor. zero, (cracks, or gaskets) any where near or upstream of any oxy sensor.!!!
2: Engine runs perfectly CEL out running and no stored or live DTCS (besides 421) and engine holds closed loop at hot idle and light flat cruise, steady right foot, if not , the CAT gets punished.
3: good front oxz sensors, a mUST.
4: AND 2nd last , new rear cat sensors (421s come from this sensor)
5: a NEW cat.

that is the crash course, can do 100s pages.
but no. just 1.

Where is the 02 sensor on a2002 lincoln continnetal

There are four sensors on the Continental cat converter. Because it is front wheel drive, the engine is rotated 90 degrees compared to a rear wheel drive. Next up is location. Front O2 sensor should be near the radiator.It will have a green connector where it is plugged into wire harness. It is called left sensor on the frt wheel drive cars. The right hand O2 sensor is downstream on the inlet pipe right above number 2 cat, the one that looks like a catchers mit, ahead of the flex pipe.Sensor 1 reads air/fuel mixture and is commonly called O2 sensor 1. remember green connector. Sensor 2 monitors the function of your catalytic converter and have a blue connector plug. Front wheel drive cars are a bit tougher because everything is 90 degrees off of diagnosis, front,rear, number 1,number 2. BTW, the sensors with blue connectors are called CMS sensors for catalytic monitor system and rarely go bad. Auto Zone scans for free and I would have it scanned before popping 40 bucks for new.

P1155 code for a toyota rav4 2002, engine lite came , took to parts store, put on diognostic machine , this code came up. wat does it mean?

Bank 2 sensor 1 Air fuel sensor heater circuit. This sensor is NOT an O2 sensor, though it operates like one and in the same location(in exhaust stream). Basically the PCM detected that the heater circuit was drawing excessive amperage or no amperage. Usually it's a bad a/f sensor and replacing it will fix it, however, it doesn't rule out the possibility of damaged wiring or an open in the power or ground circuit, or a short in the power or ground circuit.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Replacing oxygen sensor

beetles have one of two types of o2 sensors one is on the front pipe and is just a large wrench job(pref a long socket)take the wires off first.
the second is on the front box(the cat)and is welded onto the you need replace both.

Where is the o2 sensor located on a 2002 toyota sequoia

There are 4 of them. Two on each exhaust pipe.

One will be before the catalytic converter and one will be after.

Bank 2 is on the passenger side of the car.

Bank 1 is on the drivers side.

position 1 is in front of the cat position is behind the cat.

Each sensor is referred to by bank 1 sensor 2, etc etc.
You have to get at them from under the car. The rear ones are easy to remove the front ones can be an absolute nightmare sometimes.

My 2 litre petrol beetle has developed a random misfire on cylinder 4. We have replaced the HT lead and spark plug but the problem persists. what else could be causing it?

its only an idea but the engine management on the early beetles was a bit primative if your confident swap the injectors over from nos 1-4 and then see if the random missfire moves from cylinders 4 to 1 if it does then you have an injector fault if not let me know as i am a vw master -tech hope this helps
as far as jennablackies fault goes it could be as simple as damaged plug leads which would cause a missfire have you got any fault codes because its obviously nothing to do with cat/lamda probes
