When light is on for Catalytic covert-er usually mean that Bank1 sensor #2 is bad or going bad.There is only one catalytic converter on this vehicle. The only way you can purge the converter there is NO real way of cleaning it but you can use EMISSION CURE its sold at auto parts stores like Auto-Zone etc. This EMISSION CURE you pour it in you gas tank and it will help removed some carbon and debris from exhaust system to clean up emission. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

How many oxygen sensors are there on a 1996 ford explorer 8 cyl., 4.0 eng.


The answer depends on the type of exhaust system you have. You will have either 3 or 4 total O2 sensors on your V8. If you have single exhaust with a single catalytic converter then you will have 3 O2 sensors (2 upstream sensors & one downstream sensor - "up or down stream" meaning before of after the catalytic converter). If you have either dual exhaust and/or two catalytic converters then you have 4 O2 sensors (2 upstream & 2 downstream). If you have an MIL light (malfunction indicator light, or "check engine light") the code will indicate "front bank / bank one", which is one of the 2 upstream O2's before the catalytic converter(s), or "rear bank / bank two", which is one of the O2's after the catalytic converter(s).

Car has loss of power and the check engine light blinks


The check engine light will blink if there is a serious problem that could damage the catalytic converter. The loss of power could be multiple things such as a misfire or maybe even a catalytic converter that has failed and is clogging the exhaust. Have it scanned to see what the codes are and go from there.

Where is the 02 sensor on the catalytic converter on the 1998 honda accord lx v6


there are more than one. O2 sensors upstream are located in the piping before the catalytic, possibly on the exhaust manifold. these control fuel trims (mixture).

then there is one after the catalytic which is only used to moitor the converter (make sure it's working properly)
