half the people that work at autozone our most likely high school drop outs and dont know shit about cars i like it when u go there and they turn the computer screen and ask you if the part even looks like that and they have no idea what they are looking at there selves ask them one time for a left handed wrench one of these days or maybe some winter air for your tires works every times

Do you have a 6 cylinder or a V8? Bank one will be the same side as your number one cylinder. I think there will be a sensor in front of the cat and another one behind it.

:rolleyes: Before you start chastising others about their education level and job choice you may want to do some spell checking and add a bit of punctuation and capitalization to your comments.

Just saying. :salute:

On an OHV, bank 1 sensor 1 will be the upstream sensor on the drivers side. Very simple to access it from underneath. What was the error code exactly? It may not be a bad O2 sensor.

I've found the personnel at the local discount auto parts stores to be helpful and knowledgeable. Especially considering they have to support thousands of various makes, models and years of vehicles and I only have to know about the three I own.
