Question about 1996 Volvo 850
When the codes are read they generally have an identifying number for the Oxygen sensors. For instance: "B1S1" This means" exhaust bank one, sensor one. THe first sensor of your first bank.
Your VOLVO 850 is an inline 5-cylinder, so it has just one exhaust bank I believe. So it should have an Oxy sensor upstream and one downstream of the catalytic converter. The upstream one is sensing lean/rich condition of your just-burned fuel mixture, while the downstream one measures efficiency of your catalytic converter. I suggest you go somewhere else to have the car checked and scanned. Nothing against the parts dealers, but those guys are barely cashiers, as you found out. It was free right? Worth just what you paid for it, nothing!!! Maintain your Volvo so it will take care of you for years to come.
