Default o2-sensor positions? (picture)

Hi!

I will try to put this as simple as possible:

I had a bad o2-sensor which read error code P0161 which I replaced (dont know if I replaced the correct sensor though).

And now I also have a error code P0141.

Here is a picture

Click the image to open in full size.

Which sensor is which?

Yellow = ?
Red = P0161 Bank 2 Sensor 2?
Blue = ?
Green = ?

Can someone equal the colours to the correct sensors, by either error codes or:

Bank 1 Sensor 1 = ?
Bank 1 Sensor 2 = ?
Bank 2 Sensor 1 = ?
Bank 2 Sensor 2 = ?

Thanks in advance!

Hi!

I have been struggling to find this out but I cant take any chances, since every sensor requires special tools to loosen up (they are really stuck).

Can you name the sensors after the colours? Would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

GEESH I GAVE you the sensors I am colorblind so the dots don't help me...
After getting the wife to tell me the colors...
Sensor 2 is always the downstream sensor and sensor 1 is the manifold vor upstream one
As Mentioned BANK1 = Front of car
Sensor 1= GREEN
Sensor2 = RED

Bank 2 = REAR of Car
Sensor1= YELLOW
Sensor 2= BLUE

So NO you replaced the wrong one , but I have no idea why the code changed unless you damaged the wiring or shorted some wires or unplugged another one

Thank you thank you thank you!

Much appreciated!

Then the sensor I replaced is the one that has a problem right now, will check the wires for any lose one.

Wierd that the P0161 code vanished though

Thanks again!

Best regards

Hi again!

I have looked at the Chrysler Cirrus Haynes Manual and the cylinder banks are opposite to what you said badvenge? :

BANK 1 = Rear of vehicel, closest to the firewall.

BANK 2 = Front of vehicel, closest to the radiator.

Best regards

Hi!

Yes you are right, Im sorry, I just thought the Cirrus-engine was the same as it looks the same when you open the hood, and cylinder 1 on the Cirrus 2.5 V6 is rear closest to the firewall in the engine compartment

I replaced the 2:nd sensor on the exhaust being front of the car.

I thought that sensor was P0141 but Im not sure right now.

Either way that error code went away and now Ive got P0134, which I guess is the one beside the upper plenum?

I think I will give it a try and replace it.

Best regards

Im sorry

Can anyone tell me the exact position of the oxygen sensor giving me error code P0134?

I am really confused now so I would rather not replace the wrong one the third time :/

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

Hi!

P0134 refers to Bank 1 Sensor 1.

badvenge, I found this picture for the 2.5 liter engine, and it does say that cylinder 1 is closest to the firewall?

Click the image to open in full size.

So I guess Bank 1 Sensor 1 is the one behind the upper plenum??

Thanks in advance!

I gave you the bank info according to the manual ... I don't know what else I can do for you .... I'd suggest taking it to a competent mechanic or dealer or replace all 4 sensors

Hi again!

Yes I know, I'm very thankful for that.

But what does your manual say about error code P0134 = Bank 1 Sensor 1? Could you scan a page in the manual and post the picture here or tell me the exact info that your manual describes? Or where the sensor (Bank 1 Sensor 1) is located?

Because the Chrysler Cirrus has the exact same engine and the Dodge Avenger 2.5 also has the same cylinder 1 position, I guess P0134 means the sensor located rear of the plenum? (close to the firewall)?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards

Excuse me but you do realize that just because 2 different vehicles have the same engine does not mean that everything is the same on those two vehicles.

For example I own a 1991 Mazda RX-7. My brother in law owns a 1986 Mazda RX-7. Both engines are 6 port engines. My engine uses the airpump back pressure to activate the 5th and 6th ports. His does not. Both are 1.3L Rotary engines.

Badvenge has told you exactly which sensors are what earlier and he DOES have the right manual and has been working on Avengers longer than most so I would just follow the info that he told you earlier or have a mechanic work on it like he stated...

Hi again!

Okey, maybe cylinder 1 is different on the Avenger compared to the Cirrus, but how likely is that? Have you ever popped the hood on a Cirrus? They look the SAME!

I guess I follow badvenge's manual and replace the sensor in front of the car (Bank 1 Sensor 1 is right in front of you when you open the hood or lie down on the ground I guess?).

Thanks in advance.
