Location of O2 Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2

Hey Guys,

My worthless Boyfriend (yes Im a girl) said he's not going to help me fix my O2 sensor. SO I figured I would do it myself!

After all my searching I think I got the right one..

Can yall (Texas Gal) Confirm that the Bank 1 sensor 2 is located right behind the engine on the 2004 Ford Escape?

The people at the local parts store wanted to talk about everything BUT my problem..

Youre going to ask me for my number when Im asking for help.. REALLY?!?!

:-( I would really appreciate your help

Your vehicle has four O2 sensors. Two per bank, one before and one after converter.

Get oriented with the expressions "upstream" and "downstream". Upstream is the portion of the exhaust closest to the engine, downstream is closest to the tailpipe. Bank 1 on a transverse-mounted engine is the firewall side, bank 2 is the radiator side. Therefore, O2S12 (oxygen sensor, bank 1, sensor 2) is the downstream (post converter) sensor on the firewall side of the engine.

Before you jump into replacing any sensors, be advised that actual troubleshooting is highly recommended. Downstream sensors don't affect engine operation and don't fail very often. You might want to post your symptoms and allow more experienced eyes to double-check the diagnosis since O2 sensors usually run $50-70 (which can buy a lot of beer!).

The 3 is pointing at three different sensors- they would point it at all four but it would then cross too uch of the image. I have circled the one you would need according to the diagnosis.

If you climb under the truck behind the wheels (can be done without jacking it up) you will see it near the center of the vehicle.

Make sure not to plug the new on in until to have put it in the exhaust so you don't twist the wires.



So, where in Texas?
