How to replace oxygen O2 sensor on 2011-2017 Nissan Quest
Last Updated on Tuesday Nov 21, 2017
Replacing the oxygen sensor on a Nissan Quest costs about $40-$50 and requires 30 minutes to 1 hour of labor. Before you start replacing the oxygen sensor you need to identify which oxygen sensor needs to be replaced. Nissan Quest will have at least two oxygen sensors. One is upstream B1S1 of the catalytic converter, and one is downstream B1S2. In the following tutorial, we will show you how to replace the upstream sensor (Bank 1 Sensor 1). The procedure is the same for the downstream O2 sensor (Bank 1 Sensor 2). For the downstream sensor, you will find it easier to access the O2 sensor from underneath the car.
The oxygen sensors play a crucial role in your Nissan Quest's fuel and emission system. When the oxygen sensor fails on your Quest, you may notice some or all of the following issues:
- Check Engine Light is ON
- Decrease in fuel economy
- Engine Hesitation or misfire
- Rough Idling
What you will need
Step 1: Open Hood
Park your Nissan Quest and open the hood.
Step 2: Disconnect Negative Terminal
Disconnect negative battery termnail.
Step 3: Locate O2 Sensor
Locate the oxygen sensor on your Nissan Quest.
Here is the location of the upstream O2 sensor or Bank1 Sensor1.
The downstream oxygen Bank 1 Sensor 2 sensor has to be accessed from underneath the engine. You will need to remove the bottom splash shield.
Step 4: Disconnect O2 Sensor
Press the connector and pull it away to unplug the oxygen sensor.
Step 5: Remove O2 Sensor
Use an oxygen sensor wrench to remove oxygen sensor.
Step 6: Install new sensor
Install the new oxygen sensor. Tighten the oxygen sensor 35 lb-ft
Step 7: Connect wire harness
Connect the oxygen sensor wire harness by simply plugging it in. If you are using a universal oxygen sensor you will need to use the diagram that came with the sensor to find out which wires to splice.
