P2195 and P2197 means that the O2 sensors on each bank are seeing WAY
too much oxygen in the exhaust gas. In normal operation the signal from
the O2 sensors should swing back and forth between rich and lean...
Your sensors are locked on lean. Replace both O2 sensor.
if you are lockey to have one it is on the intake manifold two bolts or three depending on the engine and some have a tube / and eather vaccum or electric wires attached // if you don't have an egr try changing your o2 sensors ( some manufactures use the o2 sensors as the up & down stream and have removed the egr valve
bank 2 is the cylinder in the front of the engine compartment near the radiator, the O2 is either in the exhaust manifold of the bank or in the exhaust pipe off the manifold, round about the size of a jumbo magic marker, you need a special O2 sensor socket to remove it in some cases, if it is in the open then a 7/8 open end wrench will work.
If he used a "universal" O2 sensor, you could have a wiring problem. I had the exact same behavior on a Mazda MPV. The universal O2 sensors have to be crimped to the old sensor connector, which can cause problems. You can check the wiring closely, or insist that he use an OEM sensor, which will have the proper connector attached.
There should be two O2 sensors. If you look inbetween the engine and radiator following the exhaust manifold down to the exhaust pipe you should run into the 1st O2 sensor, following the pipe down stream under the vehical towards the catalytic converter you should find the second O2 sensor. The 1st O2 should be easy but the 2nd might be difficult depending on your abilities. Coils will depend on 4 or 6 cyls, 1 for each cyl.
