How many O2 censors in a 98 Maxima

In cars with EFI control there is a heated oxygen sensor(HO2S) before the cat converter and a ordinary oxygen sensor (O2S) after the cat convertor. so that means 1 of each on a 4 cylinder engine and 2 of each on a "V" engine . They are not interchangeable so a O2 sensor will not replace a HO2S sensor

Yellow light appears on the dashboard of my 1996 Nissan Maxima , it looks like the engine light, Is it a problem with the oxygen sensor?

Take your car to your local Autozone and let them hook up an OBDII scanner up to read the error code. It will tell you what is causing the yellow light. They don't charge to do a reading for you.

Bad oxygen censor

You can buy a replacement sensor from your local auto parts store. Also, you can buy universal oxygen sensors on-line and wire them to the connector from your old sensor. It can be a little difficult removing the old sensor from the exhaust pipe, so be careful. Make sure you get a good bite on the wrench flats.

2001 Nissan Maxima service engine light stays on code from Auto Zone scanner is PO139 and PO138. What should my next step be to solve this problem.

code p 0138 refers to 2 items
1--heated oxygen sensor(HO2S) 2 bank 1--high voltage ==causes --wiring short to positive --HO2S---ECM
2--oxygen sensor (O2S) 2 bank 1--high voltage ===causes wiring short to positive ---ECM
code p 0139 refers to 2 items
1--- heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 2 bank 1--slow response ===causes --heating inoperative --wiring--ECM
2--oxygen sensor (o2S) 2 bank 1 slow response ===causes --wiring --- O2S

heated oxygen sensors9HO2S) are in the exhaust manifold before the cat converter
Oxygen sensors (O2S) are after the cat converter
it is indicated that the HO2S is faulty-
check the wiring and /or replace both sensors
