Bank 1 Sensor 2

Question

Where is the bank 1 sensor 2 O2 sensor? I heard it was front passenger side and then I heard it was back drivers side. So which one is it? And do I have to replace it or can i just take it out and clean it?

Drivers side. Sensor past the cat.

I recently learned this myself, when we lost Bank 1 Sensor 1.

Bank 1 = drivers side.

Bank 2 = Passengers side.

Sensor 1 = Front sensor. (Pre-Cat)

Sensor 2 = Rear sensor. (Post Cat.)

Not too sure. We replaced ours with an OEM one, and not too long after lost a Cat and had to replace the Y pipe, thankfully the FED emissions warranty covered it.

 

Hope others will chime in.

If it's bad, replace it.

:rollin: Check you cats! I dropped $150 on sensors only to find that the cats were going bad. I kept getting the same code for the sensor even after replacing it.

No...there isnt a y-pipe. Its dual pipes from the manifolds to the muffler. The cats are both on the passenger side...pretty much under the passenger seat.

 

 

And i dont think my cats are going bad...my exhaust doesnt stink or anything...but i dunno

We had a bad O2 sensor, Bank 1 Sensor 1, which fired the Cat because of too much raw fuel going out the exhaust. Thankfully we had Fed Emissions warranty on the truck, so other than the O2 which we replaced, no cost to us.

Since your bad sensor is post cat I wouldn't be as worried about the cat being damaged. If it were pre-cat it could effect the fuel mixture which could damage the cat.

 

I had that same sensor go bad on my Yukon XL Denali. I found an AC Delco replacement online for about $80 and replaced it myself in about 15 minutes.
