The sensor is in exhaust pipe before converter, the converter is under car in the exhaust pipe.

    this is toolman, to change 02 sensor run engine untill warm, go to any auto store to buy a socket to remove sensor, becarefull the exhaust is hot!! when you find it remove connection to sensor, then screw out old one. it comes out easier if car is warm.

Ford explorer oxygen sensor


the o2 sensor is located by the catalytic converter and anaylyses the exhaust emissions,it may need a tune up but first i'd check all air intake hoses for leaks ,signs of wear etc as if the air/fuel mixture going into engine isn't correct the emissions will not be either ,you can get fuel additives which will clean cylinder,valves and the cat converter so try this first , if the light is still on get the garage to clear the OBD memory and retest drive as a stored code isn't always automaticly erased

Cant find base1 sensor2 on a 96 ford explorer 6 cylinder 4 wheel drive


It's called bank, not base. On a v6 or v8, each side of the engine is called a bank. Bank 1 is always the side where the number 1 cylinder is located. On Fords, number 1 is on the right bank or side, the right as if you were sitting in the vehicle, so well, the passenger side.
Sensor 2 is the oxygen sensor in the exhaust stream after the catalytic converter (somebody recently called it the cadillac converter!). You have two oxygen sensors on the right bank, one before the cat and sensor 2 is after the cat. The only purpose of sensor 2 is so the computer can monitor the efficiency of the catalytic converter. It compares the readings from sensor 1 and sensor 2. Sensor 1 information is how the computer adjusts fuel trim.

Where is the oxygen sensor on 06 ford explorer v6


Explorer requires 4 O2 sensors in total. Two are upstream, i.e. above the catalytic converter and two are downstream i.e. below catalytic converter. Simply locate these sensors by following the exhaust line from the engine towards the catalytic converter and after it.

How many oxygen sensors are there on a 1996 ford explorer 8 cyl., 4.0 eng.


The answer depends on the type of exhaust system you have. You will have either 3 or 4 total O2 sensors on your V8. If you have single exhaust with a single catalytic converter then you will have 3 O2 sensors (2 upstream sensors & one downstream sensor - "up or down stream" meaning before of after the catalytic converter). If you have either dual exhaust and/or two catalytic converters then you have 4 O2 sensors (2 upstream & 2 downstream). If you have an MIL light (malfunction indicator light, or "check engine light") the code will indicate "front bank / bank one", which is one of the 2 upstream O2's before the catalytic converter(s), or "rear bank / bank two", which is one of the O2's after the catalytic converter(s).

Where is the O2 sensor located?


There are total of four O2 sensors.

Two before the catalytic converter and two after the catalytic converter.

If you vehicle has over 160,000 miles or failing emission test then you should test the efficiency of the catalytic converters.

The exit temp should be few degree higher then the inlet temp.
