Bank one implies the drivers side of the motor. With a front wheel drive vehicle its the front as you look at it. The oyygen sensor is in the exaust manifold pipe. it screws into a bung on the pipe and has a wire lead going to a connector (electrical)

Might be going super simple here but from what you have said have you checked the wiring on your sensors? If you know that one works and you swap it and its not working its very possible the wires farther up are shorted or burned somewhere.

sensor one , bank 2 ( bank 2 is where cylinder number 2 located, in this case it's in the front ) is in the front of the vehicle and mount before the catalytic converter, most likely on the exhaust manifold. the one after the cat ( or down stream is the sensor 2 )

Testimonial: "Thanks!!! Great service and great info."

it looks somewhat like a spark plug sticking out of the exhaust , it will have a wire running to it, you'll need a special socket to remove it

Fig. Fig. 3: Oxygen sensor-4.3L engines
Fig. Fig. 4: Oxygen sensor-5.0L and 5.7L engines
Fig. Fig. 5: Oxygen sensor-7.4L engines
Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:
Bank 1 sensor 1
Bank 2 sensor 1
Bank 1 sensor 2
Bank 2 sensor 2
Some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:
Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2
Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder number 1 is located and, of coarse, Bank 2 is the opposite side.
On a 4 cylinder engine, there is only 1 bank and it is always referred to as Bank 1.
Sensor 1 is always the upstream sensor (the one located BEFORE the catalytic converter)
Sensor 2 is always the downstream sensor (the one that is located AFTER the catalytic converter.
Hope helps (remember to rate this).
