Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
You'll need a shop manual and a scanner or code reader. A scanner would be better.
You would need to know what the trouble codes are, get the diagnostic charts for the codes, and use the scanner to see the data stream from the sensors. The engine computer uses the O2 sensors to monitor the efficency of the cat and fuel mixture.

The bank 1 sensor should be the one before the CAT on the side of the engine that includes cylinder #1. If you're not sure which bank that is, look across the heads from the side of the engine (front of the car) The bank with #1 on it will have the head a little (1"-2") more towards the front of the engine. The bank that has the head set back a bit will be #2. When there are sensors after the CAT, they're not oxygen sensors, they're CAT efficiency sensors.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much, I found out that my number 2 head is in front. Since the cylinders are labeled 2, 4, 6, and 8 are all on the front. Thanks."
You cannot guess with these cars,these vehicles have a lot of sensors and actuators can can go bad at anytime, here is my suggestion take your vehicle and to Auto_zone and have them check the codes, they will be able to tell you what they mean. ITS FREE.. then get back to me if you need more help.

I would send the car for a smoke test for the emissions leak...Find out where the leak is comming from..Repair it..Reset the codes, then do a drive cycle and see what happens...
