A bank two sensor means it is on the side of the engine that does not contain the number 1 cylinder. Was there a sensor number to go along with that? Usually that code pops up as "Bank X, Sensor X" to tell you which side and sensor it is. From what I have read, Avalons have 3 O2 sensors. 2 Pre-Cat and 1 Post.

Once you figure that out, replacing one is as simple as getting an open end wrench, unscrewing and disconnecting the old O2 sensor, and reverse the procedure to install the new one.

I had the same issue and finally had to bite the bullet and pull the exhaust manifold. Put the manifold in a vise and used a pipe wrench, cheater pipe & heat to remove. Rethreaded using same thread chaser as spark plugs. No problems since.

SOURCE: where is the bank 2 sensor 1 located.

Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:

Bank 1 sensor 1
Bank 2 sensor 1
Bank 1 sensor 2
Bank 2 sensor 2

some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:
Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2

Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder number 1 is located and, of coarse, Bank 2 is the opposite side.
On a 4 cylinder engine, there is only 1 bank and it is always referred to as Bank 1.

Sensor 1 is always the upstream sensor (The one located BEFORE the catalytic converter)
Sensor 2 is always the downstream sensor (the one that is located AFTER the catalytic converter.

Most GM engines have #1 cylinder located on the left bank, (or Driver's Side) of the engine,

So, the answer to your question would be that you are looking for the sensor located before the catalytic converter on the right (or Passenger Side) of the truck.

SOURCE: 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

What is P0157 code for 2006 saturn Vue


Bank 2 sensor 2 fault. That would be the downstream oxygen sensor for bank 2.

Aug 03, 2015 | Saturn Cars & Trucks

Tip

Which Oxygen Sensor Is It?


There are many inquiries online about which oxygen sensor to change. Oxygen sensor failure codes are very common on a lot of vehicles. With all of today's vehicles having at least two oxygen sensors and many having three or four of them, it can be a little confusing as to which one is causing the problem.

Before we get into which sensor is which, we need to have a little discussion about oxygen sensor fault codes. There are several different types of oxygen sensor fault codes. Here are just some of the most common ones:

P0135 "Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit Bank1 Sensor 1"
P0141 "Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 2"
P0147 "Oxygen Sensor Circuit Bank 1 Sensor 3"
P0152 "Oxygen Sensor Voltage High Bank 2 Sensor 1"
P0159 "Oxygen Sensor Slow Response Bank 2 Sensor 2"
P0171 "Oxygen Sensor Lean Sensor 1 Bank 1"
P0172 "Oxygen Sensor Lean Sensor 1 Bank 2"
P0174 "Oxygen Sensor Rich Sensor 1 Bank 1"
P0175 "Oxygen Sensor Rich Sensor 1 Bank 2"

There are many more possible oxygen sensor codes, but I only listed these to make my point. Many times the oxygen sensor code is NOT caused by the oxygen sensor itself. "Lean" or "Rich" oxygen sensor codes (i.e. P0171, P0174) are usually caused by something other than the oxygen sensor. Something is wrong, causing the engine to run lean (not enough fuel or too much air) or causing the engine to run rich (too much fuel or not enough air). In these cases, replacing the oxygen sensor will not fix a thing. (That is, unless you are trying to fix your bank account from having too high of a balance!) The new oxygen sensor will just set the same code as the original one. This is because the oxygen sensor is not CAUSING the problem, it is only REPORTING the problem.

High voltage codes (like P0152 above) can be caused by the oxygen sensor wires being shorted to another wire inside the wiring harness. Sometimes these codes are caused by bad grounds where some other component is trying to ground through the oxygen sensor circuit. Again, replacing the oxygen sensor will not fix this! In short, the problem needs to be diagnosed before running out and buying an oxygen sensor.

Just because a fault code has "Oxygen Sensor" or "O2 Sensor" or "O2S" in its description does not necessarily mean that an oxygen sensor needs to be replaced. Many do-it-yourselfers believe that all there is to fixing the car is to hook it to the "magic box", collect the fault codes and replace the parts the computer tells you to replace. There is nothing further from the truth.

Fault codes only point you toward which SYSTEM is failing. The system must be diagnosed to find the CAUSE of the failure. If this is not done properly, it will only result in wasting a bunch of your money. This is what you were trying to avoid by doing it yourself!

So, after reading all of the above, if you think you still want to replace an oxygen sensor, but don't know which one; here is how to figure it out:

Oxygen sensors are always numbered like this:

Bank 1 Sensor 1
Bank 2 Sensor 1
Bank 1 Sensor 2
Bank 2 Sensor 2

Some manufacturers use a kind of shorthand that reads different, but means the same thing:

Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2

Bank 1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder #1 is located and, of course, Bank 2 is the opposite side.
On a 4 cylinder engine, there is only one bank and it is always referred to as Bank 1. The exception to the 4 cylinder rule is on certain 4 cylinder engines (specifically, some Toyotas) there are two catalytic converters used. In this case, Bank 1 sensors will still be in the pipe for the catalyst that is connected to cylinder #1 and Bank 2 sensors will be in the other one.

Sensor 1 is always the "upstream" sensor (the one located BEFORE the catalytic converter).
Sensor 2 is always the "downstream" sensor (the one that is located AFTER the catalytic converter).
Sensor 3 refers to the ONLY "downstream" sensor where there are two sensors before the catalyst and only one after the catalyst. On very few vehicles the reference to this reads "Bank 1 Sensor 3".

If you do not know where cylinder #1 is, then you need to get a diagram of the firing order for your engine. Just post a question on FixYa.com and make sure you give the YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, and ENGINE SIZE of your vehicle and one or more of our experts will be happy to tell you how to find cylinder #1.

I think you need Bosch for that vehicle. here is a rundown how it helps


Every automobile manufactured after the 1980s is equipped with an oxygen sensor. This component measures the ratio of air and gasoline in the engine and feeds the data to the vehicle's computer. With an oxygen sensor, your engine runs more efficiently and produces as few emissions as possible. If your car's running with a busted oxygen sensor, you better get a new one before your engine's efficiency takes a nosedive and your gas bills skyrocket. We know that looking for the right replacement oxygen sensor can be very tricky, that's why we've come up with a guide for you to keep in mind when shopping for a new oxygen sensor.
Which oxygen sensor should you buy?
There are a lot of questions about which oxygen sensor to replace. In fact, failures are common among cars especially when the wrong sensor is installed. With today's automobiles equipped with at least two, or even three or four oxygen sensors, it can be very confusing as to which one is not working correctly. There are probably a lot of sensor codes to choose from and here's a tip to help you sense the right oxygen sensor.
Oxygen sensors are always numbered this way:
Bank 1 Sensor 1
Bank 2 Sensor 1
Bank 1 Sensor 2
Bank 2 Sensor 2
Other manufacturers code their oxygen sensors this way, which is why it can sometimes be very confusing. However, they all mean the same:
Sensor 1/1 or O2s 1/1
Sensor 2/1 or O2s 2/1
Sensor 1/2 or O2s 1/2
Sensor 2/2 or O2s 2/2
Now here's a detailed list to know which is which:
  • Bank 1 is located at the side of the engine where cylinder #1 is found as well.
  • Bank 2 is on the opposite side of Bank 1.
  • On a 4-cylinder engine, there is only one bank that's called Bank 1.
  • Sensor 1 is the upstream sensor located before the catalytic converter.
  • Sensor 2 is the downstream sensor located after the catalytic converter.
  • Sensor 3 is the only downstream sensor in situations where there are two sensors before the catalytic converter and only one after it. On other cars, this is read as Bank 1 Sensor 3.
With these detailed tips on how to sense the right oxygen sensor, you'd be sure to buy the right replacement part at your store. Be sure to purchase one from a trusted brand to avoid any complications you might experience with ones that are bought from local junkyards BEST OF LUCK

P0037. heater sen. where is it on the engine?


The code is for the heater in the O2 sensor bank one sensor two. That would be the sensor after the catalytic converter on bank one.
It could be the sensor itself or the power supply for the heater.

These codes, po 138 bank 1 sensor 2 shorted to voltage and code po158 means bank 2 sensor two shorted to voltage. these are the two rear oxygen sensors in the exhaust system. there two up frt and two in the rear, check the wiring on the two rear sensors, make sure that the wiring is not cut or stuck between metal. if the wiring is good then replace both rear sensors, when you get them ask for the left and right after the cat sensors. or bk1 s2 and bk2s2. after replacing them reset the computer. go to an auto parts sotre or if you have a code reader you can do it. hope this helps good day.

Subaru wrx impreza showing fault code p0037. how do i fix this fault which sensor is it and where is the sensor located?


http://helpforcars.net/obd_codes/codes.php?code=P0037

It's an O2 sensor according to the above link, and it is bank 1 sensor 2 low, the 2 meaning that it is downstream past the catalytic converter but not on the manifold.

- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit open shorted to ground
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit fuse
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) Possible Solution Tech Notes The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor. Water getting inside the heated oxygen sensor connector can caused the heated oxygen sensor fuse to blow, which is a very common problem for this type codes. Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors.
Good luck on this repair.
