Well, Bank 1 is the passenger side of the vehicle. Are you replacing upstream or downstream 02 sensor?

The upstream is in the exhaust manifold. The downstream is further down in the exhaust pipe. Upstream would be designated by the code HO2S1- B1 and the downstream would be indicated HO2S2-B1.

In either case, you basically unplug the wiring connector, use a 7/8 wrench (or an O2 sensor socket which has a groove cut in the side to allow the wiring to not be pinched) and loosen the sensor and install the new one (with anti-seize on the threads) and plug the connector in.

The upstream sensor is pretty easy- the downstream can be a little more difficult, but is not too bad.

Hope this is helpful!!

Bank 1 is the frt side exhaust manifold (did they say bank 1 sensor 1?),you can start by replacing that sensor,i would check the intake for leaks ,the gm 6cly. are known for bad intake gaskets,you will see oil coming out form the frt or rear of the intake,also check your atifreeze overflow bottle for bronwish sludge,which means that the oil is mixing with the antifreeze.A leaking intake could cause that lean condition.

What is a bank sensor for a honda civic ls 04


O2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 should actually be read as: O2 sensor, bank 1, sensor 1. Meaning the first oxygen sensor (O2 sensor #1) on cylinder bank #1 (it's a Honda inline 4 -cylinder engine, so it only has one bank of cylinders; a V6 or V8 engine would have tow banks arranged in a V shape) needs to be replaced. The oxygen sensor will be threaded into the exhaust near where the manifold (or possibly threaded in at the manifold itself) with some wires coming out of it. In the photo, the O2 sensor is labelled as the air/fuel ratio sensor. 5478b94e-7fcc-4726-9bba-653a172e5a92.jpg

1998 nissan altima trouble code p0135


The code P0135 means O2 sensor heater circuit malfunction bank 1 sensor 1. This means you most likely have a bad O2 sensor. The possible causes are:

TT - Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit fuse
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit open shorted to ground
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) Usually the code indicates a bad Oxygen sensor, but an intake vacuum leak or a failing fuel pump can cause the code, so check your intake vacuum hose for a leak or hole. But most likely, you have a faulty Oxygen sensor. Now Bank 1 Sensor 1 means the bad O2 sensor is the one on the number one cylinder side (which is the cylinder closest to the timing belt or where all your belts and pulleys are),which is bank one. If you look really closely, you will see that the number 1 cylinder is just a little bit closer to the belts than the number 2 cylinder. Now that you know which side you are dealing with, the next step is which sensor. There are two O2 sensors on each side (upstream or downstream), four total. Sensor 1 is the upstream sensor, which is before the catalytic converter closest to the exhaust manifold. Number 2 sensor is on or after the catalytic converter. So in short, you are replacing the O2 sensor on the Number 1 cylinder side before the catalytic converter. They are a pain to remove. Get some Pb Blaster lubricating oil and spray on the threads and let sit for 10 minutes and spray it again. You will need a 7/8 Oxygen sensor removal socket to remove it. Don't forget to disconnect negative battery terminal and O2 wire harness first.. Any questions please feel free to email me. Good luck.

What is p1148


P1148 - Closed Loop Control Function Bank 1
This mean that the closed loop control function for bank 1 does not operate even when vehicle is driving in the specified condition.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module(ECM) monitor the function of the Front Oxygen (O2) sensor or Air/Fuel (A/F) sensor by comparing the signal with the Rear O2 sensor.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes:
- Harness or connectors Front Oxygen (O2) sensor or Air/Fuel (A/F) sensor 1 circuit is open or shorted.
- Front Oxygen (O2) sensor or Air/Fuel (A/F) sensor bank 1
- Front Oxygen (O2) sensor or Air/Fuel (A/F) sensor bank 1 heater

Possible solution:
- Repair harness or connector. If repair is needed
- Replaced Front Oxygen (O2) sensor or Air/Fuel (A/F) sensor bank 1


Then, possible causes are faulty harness or connectors to the air fuel ratio sensor, a faulty air fuel ratio sensor (1) or faulty air fuel ratio sensor (1) heater. Most likely yes it is just faulty sensor. Just replace this devices and reset the stored codes.

Keep us updated.

2006 hundai elantra P2270 code. If this is an O2 sensor, which one?

P2271 O2 Sensor Signal Stuck Rich Bank 1 Sensor 2
P2272 O2 Sensor Signal Stuck Lean Bank 2 Sensor 2

This is Bank 1 (closer to the dash panel) Sensor 2 (located after the catalytic converter).

---
Note: A malfunctioning front oxygen sensor may cause fuel trim codes to set.
  1. Several Diagnostic Trouble Codes use specific terminology to refer to sensor location. The illustration and key below explain the following terms:
  2. Engine BANK Bank 1 is closer to the dash panel, (also referred to as RH or right hand). Bank 2 is closer to the radiator, (also referred to as LH or left hand).
  3. UP Refers to Sensor 1 or "front sensor". It is located closer to the exhaust manifold and before the catalytic converter.
  4. DOWN Refers to Sensor 2 or "rear sensor." It is located after the catalytic converter.
  5. The following examples show how to interpret oxygen sensor terminology:
  6. B1/S1 = Bank 1/Sensor 1 = Dash panel side, BEFORE the catalyst or "upstream"
  7. B2/S2 = Bank 2/Sensor 2 = Radiator side, AFTER the catalyst or "downstream"

96 Dodge Neon O2 sensor Ckt No Activity bank 1 sensor 1----how do I replace the sensor, will that correct a problem with the check engine light?


That would correct the problem, the O2 sensor is on the exhaust manifold or on the exhaust manifold down pipe. If you go to Auto Zone, they will have the O2 sensor you need and also the loaner tool you may need to remove the O2 sensor. Auto Zone also can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the O2 sensor in about 30 min. Once you located the O2 sensor, disconnect the wire harness and use the O2 sensor socket to remove the sensor from the exhaust. It's like removing a spark plug, to install the new O2 sensor is just to follow the same procedure in revers to the removal. Good luck.

My 2003 ford 150 is stalling and my friend had a reader and the o2 sensor came up bank 1 not sure which one that is and how to properly change it


The O2 sensor bank 1 is on the passenger side along the exhaust down pipe before the Catalytic Converter. Note and bad or faulty O2 sensor will not cause the engine to stall. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have. oh and to replace the O2 sensor is as simple as replacing a spark plug. Auto Zone has O2 sensor and they can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the O2 sensor with common tools and if you need a O2 socket, they can give you one as a loner.
