The front O2 sensor is the one before the convertor. Bank 1 is the head that has the #1 cylinder if it has a V6 engine.

Where is the O2 sensor located on the 2003 V6 All Wheel Santa Fe and how dificult is it to replace?


Hyundai Santa Fe 2001-05
Heated Oxygen Sensor (H02S): The sensors are located in the exhaust system. On some vehicles, one sensor is located up at the exhaust manifold(s) and the other sensor is located down at the catalytic converter. On other vehicles, both sensors are located down at the catalytic converter.

How to Replace an Oxygen Sensor
Parts:
1. Oxygen Sensor
2. Oxygen Sensor

Tools:
1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Multimeter
3. Oxygen Sensor Socket
4. Combination Wrench Set
5. Crimp Tool
6. Socket Set
7. Scan Tool

Steps:
Step 1 * Park the vehicle on a level surface. Set the parking brake and open the hood.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.

Step 2 * With the engine off and cool, locate the defective oxygen sensor in the exhaust manifold or pipe. If necessary, lift the front of the vehicle and support it with jack stands.
o Tip: Most vehicles have multiple oxygen sensors. How many sensors, depends on the model year and type of engine.

Step 3 * Disconnect the wire connector at the defective oxygen sensor.

Step 4 * Remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust system.

Step 5 * If you are installing a universal oxygen sensor, cut off the connector from the original sensor and splice the connector wires to the new oxygen sensor. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions supplied with the sensor.

Step 6 * For threaded oxygen sensors, apply anti-seize compound to the threads and install the new sensor.

Step 7 * For flange mounted oxygen sensors, install a new gasket and tighten the mounting bolts.

Step 8 * Reattach the wire connector from the sensor.

Step 9 * If necessary, connect the OBD I/II scanner and erase the fault code.

Hope help with this (remember rated and commented this help) Good luck.

Change oxygen sensor


Under hood, center, front engine area, above exhaust pipe flange, mounted in exhaust manifold
Application:
Front
Under hood, center, rear engine area, above exhaust pipe flange, mounted in exhaust manifold
Application:
Rear

The oxygen sensor may be difficult to remove when the engine temperature is below 120°F (48°C). Excessive force may damage the threads in the exhaust manifold of exhaust pipe.
  1. Start the engine and let it warm up to 120°F (48°C), stop the engine and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the electrical connector from the oxygen sensor.
  3. Using a special, oxygen sensor socket, remove the oxygen sensor from the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe.


NOTE A special anti-seize compound is used on the oxygen sensor threads. The compound consists of liquid graphite and glass beads. The graphite will burn away, but the glass beads will remain, making the sensor easier to remove. New or service sensors will already have the compound applied to the threads. If an oxygen sensor is removed from the engine and if for any reason, it is to be reinstalled, the threads must have this anti-seize compound applied before installation.
  1. Coat the threads of the oxygen sensor with anti-seize compound 5613695 or equivalent.
  2. Install the sensor and tighten it to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  3. Reattach the electrical connector to the sensor and the negative battery cable.

On the SOHC engine the front (A/F) oxygen sensor is located in the front section of the front catalytic converter. The rear oxygen sensor is located in the rear section of the front catalytic converter. On the DOHC engine the front oxygen sensor is located in the front section of the exhaust system, just past the crossover pipe. The rear oxygen sensor is located in the front section of the catalytic converter.

O2 Sensor on a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado


Hello mrsalbert, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com

Depending on which oxygen sensor you are looking for...there are several of them throughout the Exhaust System. I will start out by giving you a brief description of what and oxygen sensor is, and they're general purpose.

DESCRIPTION
Four Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) are mounted in the exhaust system where they monitor the oxygen content in the exhaust stream. There is an oxygen sensor mounted in each exhaust manifold and one on each end of the catalytic converter. the oxygen sensor located in the front exhaust manifold is the Bank 2 Sensor 1 (Front) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the rear exhaust manifold is the Bank 1 Sensor 1 (Rear) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the Y-pipe ahead of the catalytic converter is the Bank 1 Sensor 2 (Pre-converter) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the catalytic converter outlet is the Bank 1 Sensor 3 (Post-converter) sensor.

OPERATION
An oxygen sensor acts like a battery because it creates its own signal voltage once it reaches operating temperature. This voltage is produced when the oxygen content in the exhaust stream is different than the oxygen content in the atmosphere. A lean condition (high oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a low voltage (near 0 volts) and a rich condition (low oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a high voltage (near one volt). The PCM provides a reference signal voltage (0.45 volt) and a ground to the sensor. The PCM reference voltage is necessary because the oxygen sensors do not provide their own voltage until they reach operating temperature.

HEATING ELEMENT
the oxygen sensors also incorporate a heating element inside of the sensor housing. This heating element is energized with the ignition On and allows the sensors to reach operating temperatures quickly. The PCM can then use oxygen sensor information sooner after engine start-up.

PCM INPUTS
The PCM uses oxygen sensor information during Closed Loop operation to constantly adjust fuel control to reduce exhaust emissions. Because the oxygen sensors provide information sooner after engine start-up, exhaust emissions are reduced. Faulty oxygen sensors will cause various driveability conditions and will set a DTC.

That being said...I uploaded a .pdf for you of pictures showing the locations of ALL the oxygen Sensors on your Vehicle. You can download it by clicking HERE.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!
