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.

My 97 Cadillac deville won't start could that be that my oxygen censor's are not good???


Even a bad oxygen sensor couldn't keep the car from starting. It has probably lost spark or fuel to the engine. Listen for the fuel pump "whir" for 2 seconds with the key in on position, not start. Or have the fuel pressure checked, and scan for possible trouble codes. That is the place to start: scan, fuel pressure, check for spark.

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.

O2 censor


You would use an oxygen censor socket to repair that. You can buy one for pretty cheap or you can rent one from the parts house. You'll want to disconnect the electrical connection to the O2 censor, slip the socket over it (using the appropriate ratchet) and take it off. You can also use a 7/8 inch wrench on most cars if you can get it in there.
