Question about 2005 Kia Spectra
Where are the O 2 sensors located on a 2005 Kia Spectra? My son needs a state insp. and the engine light is on. He was told it was an O 2 sensor problem.
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.
