Where does the upstream passenger side 02 sensor bolt in on the exhaust i found the sensor hanging from the electrical connector busted out the engine its a 1994 ford thunderbird

It should be screwed directly into the exhaust manifold. If you found it hanging, and you do not have a major exhaust leak, then I would say that your O2 sensor is broken. Look for a bung on the manifold and you will have to extract what is left of your old one.

The PO161 code tells you

Did you not google it, to learn what the
reason for the code was

Doesn't mean a sensor is bad,maybe,but you have
to do some testing

PO 161--Bank #2 Sensor #2

Bank #2 is the side opposite cylinder #1
& Sensor #2 is the one at the converter outlet

Need to study OBD2 Systems before you go
any further

The O2 sensor is in front of the catalytic converter in the exhaust pipe.
You should be able to use a wrench to loosen the sensor and remove it.

Not passing smog check

bank 1 is pass/side exhaustpipe/converter bank 2 is on the driverside,this car has two converters, so you have 4 oxygen sensors, one before and one after the converter on each side, so bank 1 sensor1 is pass/side before the converter, bank 1 sensor 2 is pass/side after the converter, then bank 2 sensor1 is driverside before the converter, before means starting at motor, then bank 2 sensor 2 is driverside after the converter, heres a diagram to help, i hope this is helpful.a9203dd.jpg33c9cf6.jpg

Need to replace o2 sensors on a 1997 thunderbird

you will need to crawl under the car and look at the mufflers where they come out of the motor and behind the catalytic converter. you will probably have one before and after the catalytic converter on both pipes. You will have to count the wires once you find them. They will be screwed directly into the exhaust pipe.

I have a 1997 thunderbird lx limited exdition with the 4.6 liter. A code for catyletic converter popped up. There is no egg smell. could this be bad o2 sensor or something else? This car has 173,000 miles...

If you have never replaced your oxygen sensors then that is probably the cause, you can usually expect 50-100K miles out of an O2 sensor. If you have the money replace all of your O2 sensors at the same time, it should also help with your mileage and performance a little.
