Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

My check engine light is on again and keeps sayin bank 1 and bank 2. The autozone said to replace both O2 sensors. So I did. Check engine light came back and now in the mornings when I start it, it starts but when it running, its like starvin for gas cause it spits and sputters like its starven gas. Plus the whole truck shakes untill it warms up. Takes about. 15 seconds to stop shakin and just idle. Also I have to keep fillin the radiator with fluid. the truck parks in the garage and I don't have fluid on my floor. Plus I feel I have loss of power and acceleration.

I would start to look around For a new vehicle. Drinking antifreeze and running ruff? Sounds to me like u either A cracked a head or B have a bad head gasket. Now neither of these are easy jobs. Both cost alot even I u DIY. Not in just parts but machine shop charges. If it was me, and if it was paid off, I would look for a new vehicle and drive it till it dies completely which by the sound of it won't be long sorry for the bad news

Can an O2 oxygen sensor effect another sensor and give a false reading?


Check which side of your engine has cylinder #1. That side is bank 1. Bank 2 is the side opposite of bank 1. So bank 2 is not always passenger side. And since you seem to have extra O2 sensors, I would replace the other upstream and see what happens. Also the mass air sensor can give a trouble code issue to the upstream 02 sensors. Good luck. I've struggled thru this myself.

Either in the converter inlet or just ahead if it

Bank (1) Pass Side
Bank (2) Drivers Side

An O2 Code does not mean it is bad or needs to be replaced.
Could be any number of other causes that set a MIL Lamp

It does sound like it is an electrical problem, possibly in a harness (damaged) or the ECM had major issues that a reflash could not overcome.

It has two sensors. Bank 1 Sensor 1 is inside the engine bay under the metal heat shield on the front of the engine. Check out NTK sensors online. The one you need will be a 4 wire sensor. The NTK part number is 24588.

During inspection I found out that a o2 sensor was bad but i was reading up on them and aparently there are four o2 sensors. 2 upper and 2 lower. How am i suppose to know what one is bad? secondly my...


The check engine light is blinking usually because of a misfire which can cause damage to the cat. The blinking check engine light does not necessarily mean the the cat is damaged.

The first thing you need to do is find out what codes are causing the check engine light to come on. If there is an O2 code it will help you identify the O2 sensor. The sensors are divided into to banks. Bank one is the same side of the motor as the number one cylinder. Bank 2 is the other side of the motor. Then they are divided into sensor 1 and senor 2. Sensor 1 is always before the cat. Sensor 2 is always after the cat. So if you had an O2 code for the Bank 2 sensor 1 O2 sensor it would be the opposite side of the engine from the number one cylinder and the sensor before the cat.

IMO, your first priority should be to figure out why the engine is misfiring and causing the check engine light to blink. Solving that first may take care of the O2 issues or the O2 could be the issue.

check for a blown fuse, if it is blown replace it, if it blows again after engine is started you have either a shorted O2 sensor or the wiring leading to the up stream or down stream sensors.
