Oxygen sensor Bank 2

Oxygen sensor Bank 2

Can anyone tell me which one this is. I have a 97 1500 4x4 with a 318. Is this the one before or after the cat.
Thanks in advance.

Do you have 2 O2 sensors? Cause 97 is OBD-I with only one O2 sensor.

I'm a little confused here, but are you saying that in 1997, they weren't the newer OBD-II? Cause I have read mine with an OBD-II checker several times. But I just might be confused as to what you meant by it.

My Haynes manual says '94-'97 are OBD-I.

Hmmm...well, maybe they changed it late in 97, cause mine is at the tail end of the 97 model year, about the last month or 2 of production. But it definitely has an OBD-II plug to check the engine light.

I am unfamiliar with these engines, but a 96 and up is OBD-II. Bank 2 would be the O2 sesor in the right exhaust manifold. Bank 1 would be left exhaust manifold. If there is only 2 O2 Sensors, there is Only 1 bank. You should have at least 3 o2 sensors

2000 3500, ISB, NV4500, 4x4, Quad Cab, DRW, Silver, 8 psi low fuel pressure light, Pioneer Head Unit, Sylvania Silverstars, Carter 4601 and Vulcan Bigline Kit on the Workbench, will go on soon

Ok, the Haynes manual says that 94-97 is OBD-I, then in the next chapter it says 96 and later is OBD-II. How retarded! OBD-II . com says 96 and later and if you have the plug, it's OBD-II. So, what you need to do is look to see how many you have. Start at the manifolds and go down to the cat. My 95 only has one.

Some of the 96's were obd1. All the 97's are obd2. My 97 was built in feb of 97 and it is obd2. You should only have 2 o2 sensors one before the cat and one after. THe only o2 codes you should get are bank1 sensor 1 and bank1 sensor 2. The 1st sensor is just that the one closest to the engine. This sensor monitors and changes the A/F ratio. The 2nd sensor does nothing more than watch to make sure your cat is functioning and does not do anything else.
