Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6
How to replace the oxygen sensor with the code. What is the exact location of the o2 sensor. Is it upstream or down stream sensor? Thanks
Are you sure it is a code 28? I only ask because my book doesn't show a code 28 in regards to this problem. I show codes 25 and 26 that may relate to this problem. But before replacing o2 sensor, there are other probabilities for this code showing up. They would be: Injector or injector circuit, Coolant temp sensor or circuit, Air temp. sensor or circuit, Airflow meter, Cold start injector, ECM (Electronic Control Module- THE BRAIN) Or the o2 sensor of course. Plz save your money before purchasing o2 sensor and check possible related items first.You may find o2 sensor is not at fault. Hope this helps.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature, then turn the ignition switch OFF. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Open the hood and locate the O2sensor connector. It may be necessary to raise and safely support the vehicle for access to the sensor and its connector. NOTE: On a few models, it may be necessary to remove the passenger seat and lift the carpeting in order to access the connector for a downstream O2sensor. Disengage the O2sensor pigtail connector from the vehicle harness connector. NOTE: There are generally 2 methods used to mount an O2sensor in the exhaust system. Either the O2sensor is threaded directly into the exhaust component (screw-in type) or the O2sensor is retained by a flange and 2 nuts or bolts (flange type). WARNING To prevent damaging a screw-in type O2sensor, if excessive force is needed to remove the sensor lubricate it with penetrating oil prior to removal. Also, be sure to protect the tip of the sensor; O2sensor tips are very sensitive and may be easily damaged if allowed to strike or come in contact with other objects. Remove the sensor, as follows: Screw-in type sensors: Since O2sensors are usually designed with a permanently-attached wiring pigtail, it may be necessary to use a socket or wrench that is designed specifically for this purpose. Before purchasing such a socket, be sure that you can't save some money by using a box end wrench for sensor removal. Flange type sensors: Loosen the hold-down nuts or bolts and pull the sensor out of the exhaust component. Be sure to remove and discard the old sensor gasket, if equipped. You will need a new gasket for installation. Perform a visual inspection of the sensor. Black sooty deposits may indicate a rich air/fuel mixture, brown deposits may indicate an oil consumption problem, and white gritty deposits may indicate an internal coolant leak. All of these conditions can destroy a new sensor if not corrected before installation. To install: Install the sensor, as follows: NOTE: A special anti-seize compound is used on most screw-in type O2sensor threads, and is designed to ease O2sensor removal. New sensors usually have the compound already applied to the threads. However, if installing the old O2sensor or the new sensor did not come with compound, apply a thin coating of electrically conductive anti-seize compound to the sensor threads. WARNING Be sure to prevent any of the anti-seize compound from coming in contact with the O2sensor tip. Also, take precautions to protect the sensor tip from physical damage during installation. Screw-in type sensors: Install the sensor in the mounting boss, then tighten it securely. Flange type sensors: Position a new sensor gasket on the exhaust component and insert the sensor. Tighten the hold-down fasteners securely and evenly. Reattach the sensor pigtail connector to the vehicle harness connector. Lower the vehicle. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and ensure no Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) are set. Posting pictures next......

Right bank upper sensor which is on the side of the engine
closer to the fire wall and mounted on the exhaust manifold, right in the
middle above the exhaust pipe.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
