Question about 2000 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Where is Bank 2 on a 2000 Pathfinder

Getting code that Bank 2 Sensor 2 has High Voltage. Cylinder 1 is on passenger side of engine, am assuming Bank 2 is driver side, but need confirmation. Car built 9/99, Autozone said this mattered.

The easiest way to tell which is bank one and which is bank 2 is stand to the side of the engine and look directly across the front. one of the cylinder heads will be slightly more to the front than the other as the cylinders are offset. the leading head is where cylinder no 1 in located and that is bank one, the trailing head will be bank 2. Sensor number 2 will be the one located by the catalytic converter. Sensor no 1 is the one in the exhaust manifold close to the engine and no 2 is downstream towards the cat.

This would indicate that your cat is going bad. A bad sensor gives erratic readings and would set a different code.

SOURCE: what side is my o2 sensor (bank 1 sensor 1) on for

Bank one is on the side of cylinder one. Cylinder one is typically on the driver side. Although, you have to be careful here. Just because the code mentioned the O2 sensor doesn't mean the sensor is bad. For instance, a code of P0171: sensor indicates lean, bank one sensor; one is not a bad sensor. That is a good sensor telling you that the engine is running lean on bank one. If you get a different code, then it could the be the sensor.

SOURCE: Can any one tell me where Bank 2/2 HO2 sensor

The bank refers to the side of the engine. Bank one is always the same side of the engine as the number one cylinder. Bank 2 is alwasy the other side of the engine.

Sensor refers to before the cat or after the cat. Sensor 1 is before the cat and sensor two is after the cat.


So Bank 2 Sensor 2 is on the engine opposite of the number 1 cylinder and after the catalytic converter.

Where is Bank 2 sensor 1 oxygen sensor on my 2007 tundra 5.7


Bank 1 is always the sameside of the engine as the number one cylinder.
Bank 2 is always the other side of the engine.
Sensor 1 is always before the cat
sensor 2 is always after the cat.

Cylinder number 1 on this engine is on the drivers side. So bank 2 is the passenger side of the engine and sensor 1 will be located before the catalytic converter.

BANK 1 Is On Same Side As Cylinder 1---Therefore Bank 2 Is The Other Side--Sensor 1 Is Top Sensor (close to engine) YES--Can Cause To Run Rich And Random Misfire. So Can A Injector. You Probably Should Have It Scanned (in data stream) To Check Function--If It Is Bad, It Will Show. DO NOT REPLACE WITH UNIVERSAL O2 SENSOR.

Were is the bank 2 censor located


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.

Most GM engines have #1 cylinder located on the left bank, (or Driver's Side) of the engine,

Maximas with the VE30DE and VQ30DE engines use a distributorless ignition system that is controlled by the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM receives a signal from the crankshaft sensor (the CPS - Crankshaft Position Sensor), and processes the signal based on inputs
from other various engine sensors, including the Oxygen sensor.
(this is the role of the O2 sensor in ECM operation).
Then the ECM sends signals to each of the individual coils in the proper firing order.
This system is more efficient than a distributor, and has fewer moving parts. The high voltage coils are directly attached to each spark plug, allowing a higher energy spark within the cylinder. A high energy spark means a faster, more thorough burning of the air/fuel mixture, which produces more power and lower emissions.


SECONDARY SPARK TEST - works for all cars, including Maxima.


1. Remove the spark plug.

2. Install the spark plug to the ignition coil/coil pack, then attach the coil wiring.

3. Ground the plug at a good ground location on the engine.

4. Crank the engine and check for spark.

5. If spark occurs, the ignition system is functioning properly.

6. If no spark exists, test the ignition coil/coil pack, power transistor and related wiring.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HEI Ignition Spark test - works for all cars, including Maxima.

The next level test you may want to try is a HEI (high energy ignition) spark tester kit. Cost is
about $30 at most auto parts stores. Harbor Freight Tools sells a chinese equivalent for about $16.
Place the spark tester on each of the spark plugs, and watch as the little light in the tester will
light up each time the spark plug is fired by the computer. You can actually see weak or
intermittent sparking as the motor runs - you can tell by the relative strength of the light as
you compare the intensity and duration of the light across all 6 cylinders.

If your problem were the alternator (or its built-in voltage regulator), your battery would not be
getting a proper charge, and you
wouldn't be able to start the car after a drive, since the battery would have been drained during the
drive - normally, the alternator will both charge the battery and run all electrical
features of the car during a drive.

To test your alternator, place your DMM (digital multimeter) across the battery terminals while the
car is running - it should read 13.5VDC to 14.5VDC. With the car off, you can test your battery
voltage with the same DMM - it should read 12.65 VDC (for a fully charged battery).

Alternatively, you can take your car to Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, or Pep Boys, and they'll
attach their "charging system tester" to your car and give your car a nice test for free.
I do this with my customers' cars just to get that nifty printout of the problem. Its nice
to show a vehicle owner somethng in black & white when I'm recommending a new charging
or ignition system component (some of which can be a bit pricey).

Can any one tell me where Bank 2/2 HO2 sensor located on 2002 nissan pathfinder ( passenger or driver side) ? Thanks


The bank refers to the side of the engine. Bank one is always the same side of the engine as the number one cylinder. Bank 2 is alwasy the other side of the engine.

Sensor refers to before the cat or after the cat. Sensor 1 is before the cat and sensor two is after the cat.


So Bank 2 Sensor 2 is on the engine opposite of the number 1 cylinder and after the catalytic converter.

What side is my o2 sensor (bank 1 sensor 1) on for 03 nissan pathfinder se with engine facing front. i need to replace it but i dont know which side to purchase.


Bank one is on the side of cylinder one. Cylinder one is typically on the driver side. Although, you have to be careful here. Just because the code mentioned the O2 sensor doesn't mean the sensor is bad. For instance, a code of P0171: sensor indicates lean, bank one sensor; one is not a bad sensor. That is a good sensor telling you that the engine is running lean on bank one. If you get a different code, then it could the be the sensor.
