They are located on the exhaust system, most cars have atleast 2, the first is the before the cat converter or also known as the up steam o2, The second being the down stream o2 which is located behind the cat converter.

They almost look like a spark plug sticking out of the exhaust pipe with a few wires coming out the top of it.

o2 Sensors can be very costley I would suggest having your local auto parts store such as Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts resetting your engine light, They will do it for free, also if you use some high test gas for your emissions inspection as well as make sure the car is run for a little bit before going to have the test you will find by doing this it will drop all your numbers needed to pass the test.

It is a very good chance that once the light is reset it won't come back on.

Good Luck and I hope this helps.

I am trying to find where the oil temperature sensor is located on a 2005 Kia Spectra. I have a P0198 error code


Dear Eojamio,
First, call you local Kia dealer and ask them.
I checked and I found there is no oil temperature sensor on your car.
There is a oil pressure sensor.
There is also a coolant temperature sensor.
Any Kia dealer should tell you 1) what the code means, and 2) where the sensors are located.
Know that you may not be able to see them, even with a flashlight, as they are often "buried" in spaces around the engine compartment.
God bless your efforts.

Ineed to know where my camshaftsensor on a 2006 kia spectra 5 is located


The camshaft Position Sensor in a 2006 Kia Spectra is located in the cylinder head on the right side of the head near the front of the engine. (if you are standing at the passenger fender area, this will be on YOUR left on the side of the engine nearest the windshield.) (See Diagram)

NOTE: if you are trying to fix a cam sensor code, it should be noted that MANY cam sensor fault codes can be caused by things OTHER than a defective cam sensor. For example, loose timing belt components can cause erratic cam sensor readings and cause the computer to set a code for the cam sensor. Proper diagnosis should be performed.

I have a 04 kia spectra manual 2.0L EX. My check engine light keeps coming on and it is reading 02 sensors. I had the sensors replaced last year. The mechanic said that the codes indicated that it was...


Well your MAF or Mass airflow sensor is used to find out the mass of the air that enters a fuel-injected engine. If this is failing, it would send the computer into a "default" mode and turn on your check engine light. You can find this here: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2004-Kia-Spectra/Mass-Air-Flow-Sensor/_/N-jlophZ9gsmv?filterByKeyWord=mass+airflow+sensor&fromString=search
of course the prices will differ from city to city.

The selenoid is only used on the starter for starting the vehicle. Otherwise this vehicle is not equipped with any other selenoids used in the air intake.
