You need to check two things.

First, there is a heat shield on top of the front of the motor where the o2 sensor you already replaced is. It's got (4) 12mm bolts. Remove it and check the exhaust manifold (big thing you put the o2 sensor into) for cracks. If there are any cracks, you'll get o2 sensor codes. Replace the manifold.

Second, if the manifold is fine start the car and listen to the exhaust pipe under the engine for leaks. Or if you already know the exhaust is loud... that's gonna do it too. A leaking exhaust pipe on an Accent will set secondary o2 sensor codes.

SHOULD you try to change it yourself, you will need a 7/8" wrench, and a new o2 sensor, or flex pipe, or manifold depending on what's broke. Do NOT touch the tip of the new or old o2 sensor to ANYTHING when you take it out or install it or it will be ruined permanently. Run the car until it's at it's normal operating temperature. Raise the vehicle, and take the o2 sensor out of the car (see below to understand which one) using the 7/8" wrench or if you got fancy and bought an 02 sensor tool... use it.

Replace whatever parts are bad (manifold or pipe) or just replace the sensor you need. Then restart the car and take it to a parts store and have them clear the code. The code (and check engine light) won't return right away, it usually takes a few days. If you did everything right you should be good. If not, it's not a terribly expensive job to have done and by now you should be able to explain to them what's wrong based on what you found when you looked at the car. Just tell them everything you checked and what you saw.

Education: I'm not sure where that half baked answer about o2 sensor 1 being near cylinder one came from but here's the real deal.

Sensor 1 is always BEFORE the catalytic converter
Sensor 2 is always AFTER the catalytic converter

Bank 1 and Bank 2 refer to which SIDE of the exhaust on 6 and 8 cylinder engines. Bank 1 is usually left side, Bank 2 is usually right side.

So... O2 sensor B1S1 refers to the O2 sensor BEFORE the converter on the LEFT side of the motor.

    B1S2 = Bank one, sensor two. If you have a four cylinder, you only have one bank. If you have a 6, 8, 10, 12 cylinder, bank one has the number one spark plug in it. Bank one is also the closest to the front of the engine, i.e., closest to the belts. Sensor two is always the down stream, post cat, after the cat, sensor. This sensor only has one job, to test how well the catalitic convertor is working. It has no other purpose. I have 21 years of experence and I have taught at the "Harvard" of mechanic schools in the world. These normally give off one oftwo codes, catalist efficeincy and O2 Heater failure. The cat eff code does not indicate that the sensor is bad. It is telling you that your cat is not performing up to par. Check you cat with a parometer (Heat detection gun). The temp after the cat should be at least 100 degrees F higher than when it went in, i.e. 900 before = at least 1000-1100 after. If you don't have that, the cat is bad. If the heater is bad in hte O2, which happens a lot, the O2 should be changed with the exact match. Please don't settle on a generic fit.

Sensor 2 is supposed to be after the cat if you only have two sensors on that exhaust.

If you have another sensor between the one that you changed and the one after the cat, then it will be that one as the one after the cat will be called Sensor 3.

Bank 2 o2 sensor 1 is on the back side of the engine. Simply follow the exhaust manifold nearest the firewall the first o2 is bank 2 o2 1 the next o2 will be bank 2 o2 2. The o2 you see by the radiator is bank 1 o2 1.

Bank 2 sensor 2


Do you know which cylinder on the engine is number 1? Bank 1 is always the side where the number 1 cylinder is located. Bank 2 would be the opposite side. Sensor 1 is always the oxygen sensor nearest to the engine. Sensor 2 is the sensor after the catalytic converter.

Yeah, you could do that. Bank 1 is always the engine side where the number 1 cylinder is located. Sensor 1 is the first sensor in the exhaust system, nearest the engine. Sensor 2 is always located farther downstream in the exhaust.

Where is bank 1 sensor 2 located in a 1996 mitsubishi galant s?


Locate the number 1 spark plug and then locate the O2 sensor in the exhaust. The one you see nearest the cylinder head is number 1. Look underneath the vehicle and locate the catalytic converter and the number 2 sensor is just before the "cat" and the one after is the Bank 2 sensor 2. I believe that the number one cylinder is closest to the radiator and the front of the engine. If this is a 4 cylinder car it is the sensor in the exhaust just prior to the catalytic converter. You will need a 7/8" or 22mm wrench and a good rust penetrant to remove the sensor without incident. Let me know if you need anything else.

I need to know which is the bank 1 02 sensor


Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:
Bank 1 sensor 1
Bank 2 sensor 1
Bank 1 sensor 2
Bank 2 sensor 2

Some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:
Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2

Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder number 1 is located and, of coarse, Bank 2 is the opposite side.
On a 4 cylinder engine, there is only 1 bank and it is always referred to as Bank 1.

Sensor 1 is always the upstream sensor (The one located BEFORE the catalytic converter)
Sensor 2 is always the downstream sensor (the one that is located AFTER the catalytic converter.

Hope helps (remember to rate this).

CODE PO155 BANK2 SENSOR 1 WHERE IS THIS SENSOR LOCATED?


A code P0155 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* O2 Heater element resistance is high
* Internal short or open in the heater element
* O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
* open or short to ground in the wiring harness

Possible Solutions:
* Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors
* Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)


Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:
Bank 1 sensor 1
Bank 2 sensor 1
Bank 1 sensor 2
Bank 2 sensor 2

Some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:
Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2

Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder number 1 is located and, of coarse, Bank 2 is the opposite side.

This is Bank 1 (closer to the dash panel) Sensor 2 (located after the catalytic converter).

---
Note: A malfunctioning front oxygen sensor may cause fuel trim codes to set.
  1. Several Diagnostic Trouble Codes use specific terminology to refer to sensor location. The illustration and key below explain the following terms:
  2. Engine BANK Bank 1 is closer to the dash panel, (also referred to as RH or right hand). Bank 2 is closer to the radiator, (also referred to as LH or left hand).
  3. UP Refers to Sensor 1 or "front sensor". It is located closer to the exhaust manifold and before the catalytic converter.
  4. DOWN Refers to Sensor 2 or "rear sensor." It is located after the catalytic converter.
  5. The following examples show how to interpret oxygen sensor terminology:
  6. B1/S1 = Bank 1/Sensor 1 = Dash panel side, BEFORE the catalyst or "upstream"
  7. B2/S2 = Bank 2/Sensor 2 = Radiator side, AFTER the catalyst or "downstream"

Error code p0032 on 2004 dodge caravan. what is the code?


Hi.

P0032 means HO2S Heater Control Circuit High (Bank 1 Sensor 1).

It means high impedance from O2 sensor, check wiring to sensor and replace the sensor.
Check O2 sensor located in bank 1 (cylinder 1 side- see here), and after the catalitic converter (there is also an O2 sensor before cat converter).
