O2 sensor is right after your exhaust catalytic convertor. Open the hood of your car and look right infront of the engine. O2 sensors are not on the engine. They are on the pipe that comes out of the front of the engine. They are right within your reach. It has pig tail wire. Looks like a cylinder. There are two of them. One before catalytic convertor and one right after catalytic convertor.
Like I said catalytic convertor sits right in front of the engine right after your radiator. Looks like a big cylinder.
good luck

2003 honda civic o2 how to replace And how do i fin out which once is it


Hi Jesus, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

If you have a 4 cylinder engine then you will only have two 02 sensors 1/1 is upstream and 1/2 is downstream. Upstream is the one closet to the engine and downstream is the one farther away from the engine.

If you have a six OR eight cylinder engine you will have four 02 Sensors. 1/1 means Bank One Sensor One. 1/1 and Bank one means right bank and right bank means the side with the number 1 spark plug. SO, 1/1 means, "Right Bank" Upstream 02 sensor. 1/2 means, "Right Bank" Downstream 02 sensor.

2/1 means, "Left Bank" Upstream 02 sensor and 2/2 means, "Left Bank" Downstream 02 sensor. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Locate 02 sensor


On the I6 engine, the precat sensor is located on the passenger side of the engine right below the exhaust manifold. Easty to get to, unplug the sensor and use an 02 sensor socket to remove. Post cat sensor is underneath after the cat. The connector to unplug is located in a difficult position, near the top of the transmission. I find that moving yourself toward the rear of the car and reach in the easiest. As opposed to reaching in right above the 02 sensor.

My 96 nissian maxima turns off when driving down the road i try to turn the key ,lights in dash on horn blows but will not startcould it be alternater ,or what how does the 02 sensor go by functioning ...


As of 1996,all cars sold in the US were required to have an OBD-II computer interface port.
You may want to go to Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, or Pep Boys, and get a free read
of the code(s) that you computer may be posting to help with your diagnosis.

The code coming from your vehicle's computer may be one or more of:


P0130 02 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank I Sensor 1)

P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected

P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel


Maximas with the VE30DE and VQ30DE engines use a distributorless ignition system that is controlled by the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM receives a signal from the crankshaft sensor (the CPS - Crankshaft Position Sensor), and processes the signal based on inputs
from other various engine sensors, including the Oxygen sensor.
(this is the role of the O2 sensor in ECM operation).
Then the ECM sends signals to each of the individual coils in the proper firing order.
This system is more efficient than a distributor, and has fewer moving parts. The high voltage coils are directly attached to each spark plug, allowing a higher energy spark within the cylinder. A high energy spark means a faster, more thorough burning of the air/fuel mixture, which produces more power and lower emissions.


SECONDARY SPARK TEST - works for all cars, including Maxima.


1. Remove the spark plug.

2. Install the spark plug to the ignition coil/coil pack, then attach the coil wiring.

3. Ground the plug at a good ground location on the engine.

4. Crank the engine and check for spark.

5. If spark occurs, the ignition system is functioning properly.

6. If no spark exists, test the ignition coil/coil pack, power transistor and related wiring.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HEI Ignition Spark test - works for all cars, including Maxima.

The next level test you may want to try is a HEI (high energy ignition) spark tester kit. Cost is
about $30 at most auto parts stores. Harbor Freight Tools sells a chinese equivalent for about $16.
Place the spark tester on each of the spark plugs, and watch as the little light in the tester will
light up each time the spark plug is fired by the computer. You can actually see weak or
intermittent sparking as the motor runs - you can tell by the relative strength of the light as
you compare the intensity and duration of the light across all 6 cylinders.

If your problem were the alternator (or its built-in voltage regulator), your battery would not be
getting a proper charge, and you
wouldn't be able to start the car after a drive, since the battery would have been drained during the
drive - normally, the alternator will both charge the battery and run all electrical
features of the car during a drive.

To test your alternator, place your DMM (digital multimeter) across the battery terminals while the
car is running - it should read 13.5VDC to 14.5VDC. With the car off, you can test your battery
voltage with the same DMM - it should read 12.65 VDC (for a fully charged battery).

Alternatively, you can take your car to Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, or Pep Boys, and they'll
attach their "charging system tester" to your car and give your car a nice test for free.
I do this with my customers' cars just to get that nifty printout of the problem. Its nice
to show a vehicle owner somethng in black & white when I'm recommending a new charging
or ignition system component (some of which can be a bit pricey).

I have a 2002 mini cooper s with an 02 sensor simulator on the downsream o2 sensor. the vehicle still displays a post cat system lean (P2096) code.


This could be for several reasons. I believe that the mini cooper uses 2 02 sensors, so it's possible that you have a faulty second sensor.
Or you could have a broken or missing vacuum line or intake manifold leak.
The other possible causes are a bad engine temp sensor, when the temp sensor is malfunctioning the computer may increase or degrease the fuel supply, If you getting a decreased fuel supply on a cold engine then you would have a lean exhaust.I would suggest starting with the easy stuff first, you can use a can of carb cleaner to spray around the intake and on vacuum hoses to seem if the engine picks up and idle or decreases in idle. This will tell you if you have a vacuum leak on a hose of manifold.
IF you can find a leak then I would suggest locating the other 02 sensor and use a simulator on it also.
And lastly if this didn't fix it then a test of the coolant temp sensor and the engine temp sensor would be in order.

Po507 could that be the idol air control


did you replace both 02 sensors? 02 sensors and camshaft position sensor do most of the engine timing. A bad vacuum hose will throw the timing off as well.

Hi
Check engine codes could be map sensor or 02 sensor.
Check for vacuum leak at map sensor, causes high fuel consumption.
