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.

I need the positions of all the oxygen censors on a 97 ford explorer


I would assume you have never looked under your vehicle, or have no knowledge of O2 Sensors

They are always in the exhaust pipes, either just before the converter or in the converter.
The second one, is almost always in the converter, at the outlet.

Some vehicles have two,some four.

You can always follow the wires to them

Replace with the exact part,some sensors are universal, and require cutting wires,splicing etc. Forget them.

O2 Sensor Codes----you may get,DO NOT tell you they are bad or what to replace.
Just that a sensor is out of range. Always test first. Don't throw parts at it.

I need to replace the bank 1 sensor 1 on a 97 ford explorer. I have found the bank 2 sensor 2, but I can't find the bank 1, sensor 1. Is there anywhere to find a diagram or can it's location be described...


Thanks for trying fixya,

There are 4 sensors, though not all of them are technically called "oxygen sensors. There are two that are upstream of the catalytic converters, one on each bank. Then, there are two more, one after each catalytic converter, that are oxygen sensors, but officially they are called catalyst monitors, because that is the job they are assigned to do.

Bank One would be the left catalytic - trace to left manifold and bank the other.

Oxygen sensor for 1999 ford explorer


97 ane 97 have 4. I will assume that yours does too.

Go under Explorer.
Trace exhaust maniford from engine to catalytic converter.... in that path, you will find an O2 sensor (looks like a spark plug right in the exhaust pipe).

Same item on other side.

Now, sad part. You MAY find 2 more O2 sensors just after the converter!!

Autozone can usually do a free diagnostic on your vehicle and tell you which 1 or 2 sensors are bad.
