You may have more than 1, did he by any chance tell you which one, if more than one? Either way, you may have to jack it up & put on safety stands, or just reach down to exhaust manifold,but that depends on engine, which one etc. If you can give more info, we can help. It sticks out from your exhaust manifold, or pipe(s) looks similar to a spark plug and has wire(s) coming from it.

2003 chevy aveo #1 O2 sensor

#1 is the up-stream sensor (The O2 sensor located before the Catalytic Convertor). #2 is the down-stream O2 sensor. This sensor is located after the Catalytic Convertor. I hope this helps, let me know if you have other questions concerning this issue. Good luck.

2004 ford escape - feels like hesitation,or sputtering when acceleration, sometimes just random occurance, feel it sometimes while idling. Just had check engine lite come on, showed was o2 sensors, r

Try cleaning the Mass airflow sensor and replacing the air filter. You can buy the spray MAF sensor cleaner from any auto parts store for about $6.00, ask the parts guy how to use it.

Check engine light on code shows o2 sensor how to install

depending on whitch o2 sensor it is, its fairly easy, you can purchase a special socket at any auto parts store specifically for this, then its just a matter of removing it from your exhaust and replacing. i would recomend swapping the bad one with a good one before replacing, to make sure that it is the o2 sensor and not a different problem with the vehicle :)

Readjust the Serpentine belt as the solution for the chirping sound. The check engine light could be a lot of things. Take it to the local Auto parts store and ask them to read the fault code for you. It is most likely the O2 sensor needing replaced and is an easy fix.

Go to auto Zone or Another Parts store that offers to read the codes for free. Most likely this is a faulty O2 Sensor which is normally fairly cheap to replace on your own and fairly easy as well.

it's not likely a bad o2 sensor would cause it to run rough, but the catylitic converter, which is what the o2 sensor reads the flow of, would cause the car to idle and run rough.If you take it to an auto parts store to have a diagnostic test ran on it( most major parts stores will do this for free), thecodes it gets would help pin point it alot better.

Service engine soon light come on

Probably not serious. Go to any Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone store. They will put a scan reader on your car at no charge. Probably just a sensor (such as O2) but replacing will improve your mileage and engine performance.

Engine light keeps coming on

Go to your local auto zone parts store, they have a free service where they will hook your car up to a dianostic computer and tell you what fault code is comming up. Then you can work on the correct problem. Also some cars have more than one O2 sensor, so it could still be a O2 sensor. Get the diagnostic check first. If you don't have a Auto Zone go to Advanced Auto, or start calling the part stores in your area and see if they offer this service, AMMCO offfers this service for free also.
