Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Achieva
The sensors screw into threaded flanges on the exhaust pipe. There will be one before the catalytic converter called the "upstream" sensor. It will have the short wire. The second, or "downstream"sensor has the long wire and is located after the catalytic converter. You can purchase a special tool for removing the sensors. If the sensors are positioned so as to allow the use of regular hand tools, you may be able to change them without the special tools. It is best to change the sensors while the exhaust pipe is cold. A hot exhaust pipe will cause the threaded flange to expand, making removal more difficult.
