Not very, but I own an 04 envoy, same engine light troubles, figured it was the o2 sensor, so I took it to my mechanic to have him tell me which sensor, so I could replace it.  Turns out the sensors are fine, but the secondary air pump is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.  This is apparently a very common problem with this car, and I would suggest having a diagnostic ran before replacing anything, and besides, if it was an 02 sensor, there are 3 or 4 of them on the envoy and you need to know which one is failing anyway, and only a diagnostic can tell you that.

The oxygen sensor can prove to difficult. Your third sensor should be after the catalytic converter depending on make, model and year. You'd need a O2 sensor socket and remove it when the engine is hot to avoid breaking it, stripping it or both.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYS ON. WAS TOLD IT WAS THE 02 SENSOR/VALVE. WHERE DO I FIND THIS? GMC SIERRA 1500


You should have 5, O2 sensors on your Sirera. What are the DTC codes, each codes will indicate which O2 sensor needs to be addressed, or is this an answer with someone guess what the check engine light is saying.
Thye check engine light could be from a bad O2 sensor to just a bad or loose gas cap to a transmission issues.
Thank you for using fixya and note that Auto Zone and most larger auto parts store will scan DTC codes free of charge.

Service Engine soon light on - diagnostic code says o2 sensor. What is an O2 sensor and is it hard to replace


You'll need to give us the specific code, in the format P0xxx. Just saying "O2 sensor" doesn't mean anything. It could be the heater circuit, fuse, o2 sensor itself, etc. Changing an O2 sensor isn't too hard but you may not need to replace it/them.

Please report back with the code or look it up at http://www.check-engine-light.com

The best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and get your Hyundai scanned for a DTC code. That would tell us which O2 sensor has gone bad. You have three O2 sensors and one of them has gone bad, the O2 sensor sends signals to the ecm to control the air fuel mixture so it will not run to rich or to lean which is causing you to fail the state inspection. Good luck and keep me posted on what the DTC codes are, be glad to help.

O2 Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2


That is the O2 sensor right behind the cat. converter. When the cat is clogged it can shoot contaminates in the O2 sensor so sometime just cleaning the sensor will make it work again, if not it will need to be replaced. Mark - ABKS
