Oxygen Sensor Location for 02 Avalanche
« on: 02/15/08 09:53 AM »

Hi there.

Does anyone know where all 4 oxygen sensors are located on a 02 Avalanche 1500 Z71.   I can see 2 of them.   1 before the Catalytic Converter and one after but I'm told there are 2 more.   Are they easily accessible?  I'm suddenly getting poor gas mileage and I think they need to be replaced.   I have 120k on the vehicle.

Thanks,

Alex

1 in front of each cat, 1 behind each cat.  They aren't hard to find, and not difficult to replace.

Hey there! Also do not forget to clean the throttle body and replace the plugs and wires that were due at 100,000. These will make a big difference. :B:

Bank 1 = driver's side
Bank 2 = passenger side
Sensor 1 = front
Sensor 2 = rear

Therefore, yours is passenger front.  Find cat, head towards engine (this is an easy one to get to, B1S1 is fun)

I have only been able to find the two pre cat sensors. There are none on the post cats and I don't even see any wiring harness connections for them. Another item to note is that there is a Gibson exhaust system on my Avy. Is this factory or add-on? Not sure since I bought it used in '06. ('02 2500 8.1L)

The Gibson is an aftermarket set-up.

thanks for the information.  I will be replacing it this weekend.  At $41 it's alot cheaper than having the mechanic do it....

Sensor 1 Bank 2 is the hardest to get to with the 02 sensor socket wrench, any other suggestions on how to get to it?

Try using a regular wrench.  As long as the sensor isn't seized in the pipe too bad it should come out OK. I just did one in my car that way and it wasn't changed since new in '96.

You might be able to try heating the pipe up or getting some break free spray and soaking it.
