Threw code P0134, HO2S Circuit Insufficient Activity Sensor 1.
Is this just a bad O2 sensor ? If so, where is this one located ?
Thanks, Matt

Thanks. Any tips on replacing ? Should I rent/borrow the O2 socket from AutoZone to make the job easier ? Any input is greatly appreciated.

You will want to rock the engine forward. You will need a good set of extensions. Mine took a lot of force with a cheater bar to even break free.

You can run the car until it's warm and then let it cool down for a little bit so the exhaust pipe gets a little hotter. But if you do that, I wouldn't go spraying flammable things on the sensor and be careful while touching other warm components

Remember to unplug your battery for an hour, even if it doesn't take you an hour to do the job. And remember to unplug the o2 sensor before you try to remove it so the wire doesn't get twisted up.

The job HONESTLY wasn't bad. Getting yourself situated and breaking the o2 sensor was the hardest part.
