My 99 GS300 Just turned 100K with the same symptom. I'm going on a trip to check the gas mileage...it appears the dealer doesnt change these things with scheduled maintenence as I reviewed 9 years of expensive maintenence bills and do not see a thing. Mine has two........ both visable from under hood on right side....one in front of the header cat and one behind. Ibelieve it is DENSO (Toyota) Part Number 234-4209.....$44.99 ea at oxygensensor4less.com My friendly lexus dealers want $129 or more which is typical for them.

The third one further back goes into the large cat just under the front door jam...haven't researched the part number of thi one yet, however it appears the same.. mine are four wire sensors (they preheat)...... one & two wire models will work but not till the exhaust heats up to 600 degrees.

Good Luck...let us know how you make out.

STILL LOOKING, STILL CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHICH SENSOR IS BANK 2 SENSOR 1. IT'S A PAIN IN DA #%%$!!!. KEEP GETTING CONFLICTING REPORTS FROM AUTO PART DEALERS AS TO WHICH IS WHICH. TRIED TESTING THEM, THE 3 OXYGEN SENSORS UNDER THE HOOD ON PASSENGER RIGHT SIDE. IF YOU TAKE A VOLTAGE METER AND MEASURE THE 2 PINS FOR THE 2 BLACK WIRES, YOU SHOULD GET AROUND 14 OHMS RESISTANCE, OR IF U SWITCH YOUR METER TO CONTINUITY U SHOULD GET A LONG BEEEEP ACCROSS THE 2 BLACK WIRE PINS. IF MY TESTING IS CORRECT THE 2 SENSORS (1 FRONT OF CAR & 2nd LOWER MIDDLE) ARE GOOD & THE 3rd AT THE BACK CLOSE TO THE FIRE WALL IS BAD ( NO CONTINUITY, OR RESISTANCE). TOMMOROW I WILL GET THE CHECK ENGINE READ AGAIN TO CONFIRM IT IS STILL P0155. THEN IF THE SAME I MAY HAVE TO SUCK IT UP, GOTO THE DEALER AND PAY THE OUTRAGIOUS $183 PRICE TAG FOR THE CORRECT OXYGEN SENSOR.(COMPARE WITH (www.rockautoparts.com $77)
