Need more info. I see from the location of your post that you have a 2002 Blazer. Do you mean a Trail Blazer? Chevy didn't make a Blazer in 2002. The ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) is located on the driver's side, front of the engine. (on top) It is between the ECM (engine control module aka the engine computer) and the alternator. You will most likely need to remove the alternator and it's belt to obtain easy access to the sensor. If you need to remove the alternator for access, remember to disconnect the battery's negative terminal first. The sensor has a wiring harness with a connector mounted to the top of it. After you remove the electrical connector, the sensor will screw out using a deep socket and ratchet. You will loose some coolant (antifreeze) during the change, so make sure you have some DexCool antifreeze on hand.

Bank 1 is the rear O2 sensor, but experience says to change both. The front one is right behind the engine in the middle of the engine compartment. The rear O2 sensor is on the top of the exhaust pipe, just behind the catalytic converter. But the same code that shows it is the O2 sensor (which is P0420), is the same code for the catalytic converter, or a vacuum leak. Make sure if you do change the catalytic converter, ensure that the new one is OBD-2 compliant. And the vacuum leak could possibly come from the manifold gasket. Let me know what the problem was!

There are two sets of 02 sensors on most cars today. On set is set directly behind the header, one on each side, if it is a V engine. This set is used for the engine's ECU to control timing as well as other variables. The other set is placed on a bung in your Catalytic converter. This 02 sensor is used for emissions purposes only.
