Good Evening, I am sorry to hear you cannot find the upstream oxygen sensor. Unfortunately it is a difficult one to get at from up top because the way that the firewall sits over the top. It is on the back exhaust manifold, if you were to able get underneath and could follow your exhaust pipe up to the engine you can see it. I hope this helps, and if you have any more questions let me know.

Does a 2004 Suzuki Verona have a catalytic converter? I am trying to see how much a replacement catalytic converter would cost, but when I try to look it up, I keep only getting hits on oxygen sensor listings. This is making me wonder. Also, how do I know which oxygen sensor has gone bad. My check engine light keeps coming on and the code is saying it's my oxygen sensor.

My 2000 Saturn LW2 had an error code for the front oxygen sensor and my speedometer stopped working. How would I be able to fix my speedometer before I replace my oxygen sensor, so I know its not the


Well, a broken speedometer can mean typically one of two things. First, the actual gauge could be broken. If this is the case, it may be possible to replace just the gauge if you order an OE gauge, but more commonly, the cluster is a complete ... Saturn Cars & Trucks

On a 2001 chrysler sebring coupe lxi 3.0 where is the O2 "oxygen sensor" physically located, computer says bank1 sensor2. I know Bank 1 is the side where the #1 cylinder is which I "think" is on the firewall side?

How many oxygen sensors on a 2000 Daewoo Lanos LX? I found one at the base of the exhaust manifold where the muffler bends towards the catalytic converter. Is there another one? I keep seeing things that say 2 wire, or 4-wire, front, back, passenger, driver side...kinda pathetic. Anyway, the one I found is a four wire (heated) O2 sensor. I did a quick look and did not see another one. How do I know for sure if there is a second O2 sensor? If there is a second one, where is it? Thanks!

How do you check the timing on an 01 kia sportage? I know that you can't make adjustments to the timing on a 2001 kia sportage, but I'd like to know what you do to check the timing with a timing light (what vacuum lines do you plug off, are there any electrical components you unplug, where are the timing marks located, which is the #1 spark plug, etc, etc.). The reason I want to check the timing is the car seemed to be running ok but I changed the 2 catalytic converters, the 2 oxygen sensors,

My 2001 Rav4 engine light keeps coming on. We had it hooked up to a computer and it said that it was "running lean". The suggestion was to change the spark plugs and the oxygen sensors. We have changed the spark plugs already, but now when the car is in a low idle (foot not on the gas at all) the car stalls. I don't know if that is a fuel problem or from the oxygen sensor. Also, where is the oxygen sensor or sensors? There are two "sensors" on the front of the exhaust manifold but I don't know w


It sounds like you have a large vacuum leak after the mass air flow sensor. This would induce a lean running condition and could cause a stall. Check the rubber air intake bellow for cracks or tears. Also check for disconnected or broken vacuum lines ... 2001 Toyota RAV4

TOYOTA PREVIA CDX 2001. HAS HAD ENGINE LIGHT ON FOR A YEAR OR SO - GARAGE SAYS IT IS ONE OF FOUR OXYGEN SENSORS ON CATALYTIC CONVERTOR - BUT THEY DO NOT KNOW WHICH ONE. ALSO IN LAST MONTH OR TWO - OCCASIONALLY WHEN HOT - ENGINE RELUCTANT TO START OR IDLE OR ON BLIPPING THROTTLE ENGINE REVS AND THEN DIES. BUT AFTER 2-3 MINUTES OF LIGHT REVVING THEN ALL OK AGAIN. ps: it is a 2001 model - not 1997

I had my old catalytic converter turn red and was told by a work mechanic that I needed a new one. So I had a new one professionally installed. I have changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires. PCV valve, 2 02 oxygen sensors, and the converter is still turning red.Also I have had 2 dignostic test done on my 1991 cadillac eldorado, but even the new converter is still turning red. What can I do as I am spending money and no results. I need to know what I can do, to stop this. Thanks

Severe misfiring My 1999 Miata with barely 25,000 miles started acting up a year ago with the check engine lite on/off constantly. Garage checked code - random misfire on cold start.
