Check for an oxygen sensor (HO2S) before the cat converter and a Sensor (O2S) after the cat converter . If you have two cats then there will be 2 sensors for each converter. The Ho2S is a heated sensor and is different to the O2S sensor.. Use the special sensor tool so that the wires are not damaged

to set you up here-- there are 4 oxygen sensors in the system
2 are heated oxygen sensors (HO2S) on in each exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe before the cat converter and
2 oxygen sensors (O2S) -- one in each exhaust pipe after the cat converters
heated oxygen sensors have 4 wires and O2S sensors normally only 2 wires
it is more that possible that you changed the wrong sensors and in the process damaged the delicate wires with the incorrect spanner being used

1994 ford f150 oxygen sensor location


An Oxygen Sensor (O 2 S) or heated Oxygen Sensor (HO 2 S) is used on all engines. The sensor is mounted in the right side exhaust manifold on some V8 engines, while other V8 engines use a sensor in both right and left manifolds.

Heated oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust pipes below the exhaust manifolds. The sensors react with the oxygen in the exhaust gasses and generates a voltage based on this reaction. A low voltage indicates too much oxygen or a lean condition. Where as a high voltage indicates not enough oxygen or a rich condition.

Disconnect the Oxygen Sensor (O 2 S). Measure resistance between PWR and GND (heater) terminals of the sensor. If the reading is about 6 ohms at 68°F (20°C). the sensor's heater element is okay.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer).

I am trying to locate the Oxygen Sensor on my 2003 Impala?


Chevrolet Impala comes equipped with two oxygen sensors, one on either side of the catalytic converter. Locating the sensors is as simple as crawling under the vehicle.

  1. Location
    • The bank 1, sensor 2 oxygen sensor is located downstream of the catalytic converter. To get to the sensor, crawl underneath the vehicle and trace the exhaust pipe until you reach the catalytic converter. Continue to follow the exhaust pipe until you reach the bank 1, sensor 2 oxygen sensor.

    Identification
    • You should be able to identify the oxygen sensor as a single wire about 3 to 6 inches long. The oxygen sensor is mounted to the exhaust pipe and should slightly protrude from the pipe.

    Function
    • The oxygen sensor is an important part of the vehicle exhaust system. The sensor tests the amount of air in the exhaust stream. It then sends this information to the engine control computer, which determines how much fuel is necessary to maintain a proper air-to-fuel ratio.


If this free advice was helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.

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.

REPLACING OXYGEN SENSORS


    Remove the Oxygen Sensor
  1. Step 1 Start the engine and let it idle for four minutes to raise the exhaust system temperature. This will make removal of the oxygen sensor much easier and prevent damage to threads on the exhaust pipe.
  2. Step 2 Turn off the engine.
  3. Step 3 Detach the ground battery cable using a wrench.
  4. Step 4 Locate the oxygen sensor or sensors you need to replace. The sensors are threaded into the exhaust pipes before and after the catalytic converter. The oxygen sensor has a cylindrical body and the approximate size of a spark plugmag-glass_10x10.gif.
  5. Step 5 Raise the front of your vehicle using a floor jack and support it on two jack stands. This will help you gain access to the sensor or sensors if necessary. If you need to work under the vehicle, wear safety goggles.
  6. Step 6 Unplug the sensor electrical connector.
  7. Step 7 Unscrew the oxygen sensor using a box-end wrench or a ratchet and oxygen sensor socket.
  8. Step 8 Remove the sensor or sensors from the vehicle.
  9. Install the New Oxygen Sensor
  10. Step 1 Apply a light coat of electrically conductive anti-seize compound to the threads of the new oxygen sensor.
  11. Step 2 Thread the oxygen sensor into the exhaust pipe by hand first.
  12. Step 3 Finish tightening the sensor using the box-end wrench or ratchet and oxygen sensor socket.
  13. Step 4 Plug the sensor electrical connector.
  14. Step 5 Lower the vehicle.
  15. Step 6 Attach the ground, battery cable using the wren

Check engine light is on...bank 1 sensor1 oxygen sensor


if u have one oxygen sensor then u need to take a deep look at the bottom of ur car it will be somewhere at the Exhaust pipe if u have a catalytic converter then u will have two oxygen sensors one before the catalytic converter & the other will be after the catalytic converter. Note: the catalytic converter is located at after a little bit of beginning in Exhaust pipe.

WHERE DOES THE KNOCK SENSOR, AND OXYGEN SENSOR GO?


The knock sensor is located on the side of the engine block. And the oxygen sensors are located in the exhaust system. There will be one oxygen sensor (upstream) screwed into either the exhaust manifold or the exhaust pipe before the catalytic converter. The other oxygen sensor (down stream) will be screwed into the exhaust pipe just after 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!
