Bank 1 tell you there is a missfire on the right bank of the engine. check all the spark plugs and wirs , then the ignition modules.

I need the location of oxygen 2 sensor on 96 Maxima


bank 1 refers to the side of the engine. on a four cylinder there will onlyu be a bank one. a v-6 will have a bank 1 and a bank 2. Bank 1 will be on the same side of the engine as cylinder number one. Bank 2 will be the opposite side. Sensor 1 is always before the catalytic converter. Sensor 2 is always after the catalytic converter.

So , for example, if your looking for Bank1 Sensor2 it will be in the exhaust pipe after the cat on the same side as the number one cylinder.

I have five codes P2237 P2196 P2271 P0030 P0171 and a P2237 pending code on a 2005 elantra.The car runs poorly, bad gas mileage, sluggish with the check engine light on.Are all O2 sensors bad or maybe the...


P2237 P2196 P2271 P0030 P0171

These are all O2 sensor trouble codes, except P0171 which is a fuel trim code,

You have a bad 02 sensor - up stream - Bank 1 Sensor 1.

Replace it, then road test. The engine computer has a 'default' fuel trim it uses when an O2 sensor fails so it can protect the catalytic converter. If this hasn't been going on too long, good chance simply replacing the O2 sensor will remedy your problem.

Lookin to put a 6.2 crate engine in a 96 Caprice that had an LT1 Any problems or will everything bolt up


No. Every thing is way differant. Mounts, trans bellhousing, brackets. Just about everything. It could be done with a whole doner car. The 2500hd trucks have the same engine so if you could find one of those then you would have most everything you need.

O2 sensor location 1997 pontiac grand am 2.4 4 cyl auto trans


BANK 1 SENSOR 1 IS THE ONE IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. BANK 2 SENSOR 2 IS BELOW THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

P0171 SHOULD GO AWAY WITH A GOOD O2 SENSOR BUT DO CHECK FOR VACUUM LEAKS TO BE SURE. 3.1/3.4L ENGINES HAVE A BAD DESIGN INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET, THE LEAK OIL, COOLANT, AND AIR.

Catalytic converters


If you are going to change the convertors I would just replace the first one closest to the engine. But when a computer code says "bank" they usually are refuring to the Oxygen sensor that is there , they are classified as bank 1 and bank 2. 1 being closest to the engine and 2 being farther down the exhaust. If its a computer code that told you bank 1 you might need to look at your oxygen sensor instead of your catalitic converter.
