O2 sensors

My friend gave me a sensor tester because I wanted to see if one of my sensors is the reason I have a ses light on. Does anyone know where the o2 sensors are and how to remove them so I can test them? Thanks. Btw I have a 1995 camaro z28

Have the ses code read it will tell you which one is bad.
That being said there on the exhaust pipes that connect to the manifolds. The drivers side is right next to your oil filter

Well there are multiple O2 sensors, so it would be a big waste of time fighting with them IMO. Just get the code(s) scanned. If it is an O2 sensor it will tell you which O2 it is that is causing the problem.

Edit: I got beat to the punch

I've tried to get my car scanned at over 15 different places and no one has the scanner to scan my car because I have an obd1 computer with the obd2 connector

Have you considered taking it to a dealer to have it scanned.
It might be worth the money.
Just throwing parts at f-bodies tends to be expensive and rarely works.

I wasn't throwing parts at anything, I was just testing to see if they all work. And I was told by a mechanic at the Chevy dealership that they don't have a scanner compatible with my car. I also asked my friend at the Kia dealership and they couldn't either. Been to numerous garages and small shops and none can scan it

95 green z28,
They can't be serious.
A Chevy dealer told you they can't scan a 95 Chevy?
How in hell did they check codes for warranty work on cars like yours?
That just does not compute

That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm going back and talking to someone else to see if I can talk to someone with some sense but he said "they don't carry those scanners anymore because the new cars have different computers" I just laughed and walked out
