Yes, B2S1 o2 sensor is the upstream (pre-cat) bank 2 (front/radiator) o2 sensor with green elec. plug. You can check Rockauto online for part#'s and prices.

Ok ty for the help. Do you know of a good place to go for a video or wallthrough on how to replace it?

Locate it behind the radiator, unplug the green elec. conn. and remove it with a 7/8" (22mm) combo wrench or o2 sensor socket.

Check your coil. Remove it and look on the underside. If you see a crack in the coil, you will need to replace. Also check your spark plug wires. When were they replaced. Check the resistance in them. Finally check the spark plugs. When were they replaced?

I had a similar issue which turned out to be an exhaust leak before the catalytic converter, specifically the flex pipe between the manifold and catalytic converter decaying. Might be worth checking that out.
