Welcome to Just Answer my name is Jim, Looks like you have 2 questions? Need to know where bank 1 sensor 2 is located? Not sure what swirl control valve question, could you be more specific. I will check back . Jim
The 97 xe pickup has 2 02 sensors, I do not know which one the code refers to.
The swirl valve code tells me about a solenoid valve, do not know where it is on the 2.4 engine.
OK the oxygen sensor is located behind the cat> I will get that location for you.
The one you are looking for is pictured on right
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX what is called a downstream 02
once r&r, will that take care of the other codes
yes it is... The heater in the sensor is what normally fails.
Will not take care of Swirl Control.. that is not a sensor but a vacuum valve.. loacted in the intake manifold
To check this you will need a vacuum hand held gauge. The diaphram in the pod may be blown. the way we test it is show with the gauge applying vacuum to the valve. If it bleeds off it is bad. You could depress the lever on the valve and hold your figure over the nipple. If should not bleed off.
1 last question could the vacuum hose be bad or clogged . understand about the hand held gauge. thanks ken
Yes it could be due to a lack of vacuum due to a broken hose . let me check one thing and be back
Here is the test procdure
thanks JIm.. you have a wonderful new year and than you very much.. Ken
No problem.. good luck and the same to you!
