Best Answer

Some modern cars like the maxima even have four O2 sensors. The reason some cars have more than one O2 sensor is to be able to moniter the level of unburnt hydrocarbons that are present before the catalytic converter and the level present after the catalytic converter, this is useful for determining how efficient the catylytic converter is at burning off these unburnt hydrocarbons present in the exhaust gases. The computer is also able to use the information from multiple O2 sensors to get a clear reading of the engines air to fuel ratio so it can deliver a more precise amount of fuel to the engine.

One... It's screwed right into the exhaust manifold. It's very easy to get to but can be hard to get the old one out... They make special sockets for O2 sensors.

Pre-96 only have one on the exhaust manifold. The sensor wiring varies with 3-pin and 4-pin variations.
