4.6l engine. What is firing order?

Found this firing order.
As far as the sensor, you talking about 02 sensor? Bank one has the number 1 cylinder, bank 2 is the other bank, sensor 1 is the first sensor you come to, in the exhaust.

See a visual diagram of heat oxygen sensor bank 1 sensor 2 for ford taurus 2001

bank 1 exhaust is the rear manifold towards the windshield side. Follow the exhaust down. There should be one oxygen sensor before the catalytic converter and a monitor after the catalytic converter. Be Careful.. they look the same.

Where is the bank 1 sensor 1 on a 2001 ford taurus?

Bank one is the engine cylinder bank near the engine firewall (see diagram). The bank one sensor one is the Oxygen sensor (O2) located in the exhaust pipe just of the engine cylinder bank at rear and before the Catalytic Converters.

I HAVE TO REPLACE A 02sensor on a 2001 taurus V6 30 the code say bank2 senor2 where is it located

Bank is referring to a collection of cylinders. I.E the curb side cylinders. Sensor 2 mean cylinder 2 in bank 2. It is not a O2 sensor. The computer is noticing a fault in a middle cylinder...check spark plugs for abnormal or premature damage

Location of the bank 1 sensor 2 O2 sensor on a 2001 ford escape

B1 means the sensor is located on the same bank of the engine that has the #1 cylinder. B2 is located on the opposite bank.
S1 means the sensor is located BEFORE the catalytic converter
S2 means the sensor is located AFTER the catalytic converter

You didn't say which engine you have, so I've included the diagrams of both 4 cyl and 6 cyl so you can see the banks

Where is the camshaft sensor?

It depends on the engine that you have in the car. On the 3.0L Vin S engine it is located on the front of the engine and attached to the forward cylinder head. On the 3.0L Vin U,2 engine, it is located at the rear of the engine between the cylinder banks. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Hi, Ineed asist, my car have two codes PO135 and PO1131 my car is ford ranger 1998 thanks for help mi

the code P0135 is for high resistance or short in wiring harness or oxygen sensor bank 1, bank 1 is the bank with cylinder number 1, check the harness wiring to the O2 sensor if all is ok you should replace the O2 sensor, the P1131(bank 1 lean) code is more than likely a resulting code from the P0135. Let me know if this helps
