A: P0037 is an oxygen sensor code referring to...

P0037 is an oxygen sensor code referring to bank 1 sensor 2. This is the right hand side of the engine and the second sensor on that side. The code may be caused by the catalyst on that side or some other issue besides just the sensor. If you need help with this repair, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to replace the oxygen sensor for you.
