Bank 1 sensor 2 location on a 2000 mitsubishi eclipse gt 3.0 v6. Is this the upstream or downstream. Before catalytic converter or after?

Is the bank 1 sensor 2 considered the upstream or downstream? Before the catalytic converter or after? Is it the one that comes right after the Y where the to manifolds meet? the code was P0141

SOURCE: replace oxygen sensors

these engines have 1 upstream o2 sensor and 1 downstream o2 sensor..the 1 in the rear exhaust manifold is the upstream and the 1 after the converter is the downstream..make sure you replaced the right one

1/1 is upstream sensor on the number 1 cylinder side, 1/2 is the downstream of the number 1 cylinder side, 2/1 is the upstream of the number 2 cylinder side, 2/2 is the downstream of the number 2 cylinder side. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: P0420 and P0430

The AF sensors are uupstream and the O2 down stream. The car' s computer tests them and it is saying your cats are bad. If you have a scan tool you could look at the data and see what the sensors are seeing. The Af sensors are the ones that control the fuel ratio in the car while the O2's just watch. AF's would be the one to change but there is no garuatee that the codes won't come back.

What is the best way to remove O2 sensor bank 1 sensor 2?


Here is the low-down on oxygen sensors, and their location designations explained:

Oxygen sensors are screwed into the exhaust system at various points. Some people say that there are 4 oxygen sensors, but technically, that is not correct. Only the front 2 are considered oxygen sensors.

These oxygen sensors are screwed into the exhaust pipe or directly into the exhaust manifold, one on each bank. Because they are in front of the catalytic converter, this is often referred to as 'upstream'.

The other 2 are actually called catalyst monitors. They are oxygen sensors, but they serve a different purpose. They monitor the activities of the catalytic converters, thus the name, catalyst monitors. They are screwed into the exhaust one on each bank, after, or downstream, of the catalytic converters.

On a 4 cyl engine, there are only a total of two such sensors, the one in front of the catalytic converter is the O2 sensor, the one behind the cat is the catalyst monitor.

The location names for them are as follows:
  • On a 4 cyl, the front / upstream is called "bank 1 sensor 1" and the rear / downstream sensor is called "bank 1, sensor 2."

  • On a V6 or V8 engine:

    • the passenger side bank on a forward facing engine, or the bank closest to the firewall on a transverse mounted engine, is bank number 1, so the forward / upstream sensor on that bank would be "bank 1, sensor 1."

    • The driver's side bank (forward facing mount engine), or front bank (transverse engine) would be bank number 2, thus the forward / upstream sensor on that bank would be "bank 2, sensor 1," and the rearmost / downstream sensor on that bank would be "bank 2, sensor 2."

Which sensor is the bank 2 sensor 1 for a 2001 nissan sentra?


Unless I am missing something the 2001 nissan sentra has two four cylinder engine options.

The bank refers to which side of the engine. a four cylinder only has one bank so there can only be a bank 1. A v-6 or v-8 will have two banks since there is a bank of cylinders on each side of the engine. So there will be a bank 1 which is always the same side of the engine as the number one cylinder, and a bank 2 which is always the other side of the engine.

Sensor refers to upstream or downstream of the catalytic converter. Sensor one is upstream or before the cat. Sensor 2 is downstream or after the cat.

If you entered the wrong year or wrong vehicle or if you can post the actual code I will see if I can help you further.

Where is the o2 sensor located on a 2006 mitsubishi eclipse gt 3.8v6 sensor 1 bank 1


Hi, your Eclipse is like Mitsubishi 380 V6. Bank 1 Exhaust is toward the radiator & sensor 2 would be attached to the exhaust pipe after your Catalytic converter. That is the second Oxygen Sensor on the front exhaust pipe which would be under the motor toward the muffler.
You can take a look at your exhaust pipe right it before it goes into your catalytic converter. Thats the approximate location of a great many o 2 sensors

Where are the front 02 sencers located


There are 4 oxygen sensors on the Windstars They are divided into 2 banks of 2.
- Bank 1 is the for the rear 3 cylinders of the engine
- Bank 2 is for the front 3 cylinders.

Bank 1 / Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below, in the pipe, the exhaust manifold on the back of the engine.

REMOVE TIP: you may have to bend part of the transmission heat shield out of the way - be sure to put it back when done.

Bank 1 Sensor 2 (downstream) is located just past the drivers side catalytic converter. Bank 2 Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below the exhaust manifold, in the pipe, at the front of the van - access is from the top. Bank 2 Sensor 2 (downstream) sensor is located just past the passenger side catalytic converter.

NOTES: * Use lots of penetrating oil - allow to soak - to make removal easier and avoid damaging the exhaust pipe

* The sensors are screwed directly into the pipe at a 90 degree angle and look like spark plugs with either 8", 12", or 14" wires attached to them

Location of the bank 1 sensor 2 on th engine?


"banks" refer to the sides of the engine. Bank 1 is always the same side of the engine as cylinder number one. Bank 2 is always the other side of the engine.

"Sensor" refers to upstream or downstream of the catalytic converter. Sensor 1 is upstream of the cat and sensor 2 is downstream of the cat.

Bank 1 sensor 2 would be the same side of the engine as cylinder number 1 and downstream of the catalytic converter.

Need to know were the bank one , sencer one is on my buick century 2000 v6


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.

Hope helps (remember to rate this).

O2 sensors on 1998 ford windstar


1998 Ford Truck Windstar 3.8L SFI 6cyl, there are 4 oxygen sensors on the Windstars They are divided into 2 banks of 2. Bank 1 is the for the rear 3 cylinders of the engine - Bank 2 is for the front 3 cylinders. Bank 1 / Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below, in the pipe, the exhaust manifold on the back of the engine.

REMOVE TIP: you may have to bend part of the transmission heat shield out of the way - be sure to put it back when done.
Bank 1 Sensor 2 (downstream) is located just past the drivers side catalytic converter.
Bank 2 Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below the exhaust manifold, in the pipe, at the front of the van - access is from the top.
Bank 2 Sensor 2 (downstream) sensor is located just past the passenger side catalytic converter.

NOTES: * Use lots of penetrating oil - allow to soak - to make removal easier and avoid damaging the exhaust pipe

Hope this help; TY for using Fixya (remember rated and comment this).

Code po430 not sure what maybe converter


One of three (3) possibitlies:
1. Catalytic Converter is malfunctioning.
2. O2 Sensor is malfunctioning. This will be the O2 Sensor located on the Catalytic Converter. However you should check and/or replace both sensors if needed.
3. You have an Exhaust Leak.
In Order of checking:
A. Check and Repair any Exhaust Leak.
B. Replace the O2 Sensor on the Catalytic Converter 1st. Also Known as the Downstream O2 Sensor or HO2 Sensor.
C. Replace the O2 on the Exhaust Manifold prior to the Catalytic Converter. Also Known as the Upstream O2 Sensor.
D. Replace the Catalytic Converter.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
