Refer to the illustrations determine the proper sensor locations.

  • Bank 1 (B1) refers to the bank that includes cylinder No. 1.

  • Bank 2 (B2) refers to the bank opposite bank 1.

  • Sensor 1 (S1) refers to the sensor that is located before the catalytic converters.

  • Sensor 2 (S2) refers to the sensor that is located after the catalytic converters.

Failure to obtain and install the correct sensor will alter the way the engine runs as components are calibrated differently for the specific locations.
