Most of the time it is just: remove the connection to the O2 sensor, screw out the old O2 sensor, screw in the NEW O2 sensor, re-make connection to the O2 sensor. Note that some O2 sensors do not have plugs and you have to cut the wire and use crimp connectors to attach the new O2 sensor. If yours has a plug, you're in luck. Note that if the package includes a tube of silicone grease, make certain that you use it to protect the connections from corrosion. One of the hardest problems is taking out the old O^2 sensor. They have been in so long that they sometimes become seized in the port. You might have to resort to penetrating oil, heating torch, or a long bar & muscle to get the sensor out. The new sensor should have a little anti-seize on the threads to prevent getting stuck in the port.

The 1999 Mercury Mountaineer 02 sensor is secured to the firewall with two retaining screws. Remove the two retaining screws. Remove the O2 sensor hose. Reverse the process to install the new sensor.

First you need to find which one is bad. After you find out which one is bad you remove the 02 sensor from the exhaust pipe with an 02 sensor socket. Then you disconnect the sesor from the electrical connector. After that you can install the new one. Be carefull it's not the easist job to do in the drive way.

where is the secondary 02 sensor on a 2004 crv

The "ABS" light is telling you that you have a problem with your antilock brake system. The 02 sensors monitor your engine's performance and emissions. these are two completely different systems. I suggest you look for a new mechanic.

From Underneath the vehicle locate the sensor and using an open end box wrench lossen and remove the o2 sensor follow the wire up into the engine compartment dissconnect from the connection, plug in the new 02 sensor and carefully fish it through so that you can install it as the old one was removed

Unplug suspected sensor from the harness, cut wires off at the sensor, slip a 7/8" box wrench over the sensor and remove by turning counterclockwise. Install new one with a open end 7/8" wrench, snug it down as you would a spark plug, reconnect plug to harness.

Depending on the year of the Monte Carlo the 02 sensor could be installed in several places on the exhaust. The 02 sensor screws in. You may need a special socket to remove it, just unscrew the sensor and screw the new one in.

If you are replacing a 02 sensor with a new one I would cut off the wires at the sensor and slip a 7/8" box wrench over the sensor and remove it with a counterclockwise motion.

unplug it from wiring harness and unscrew the o2 sensor from the exhaust pipes, and reverse the process with the new one

I just had my brother ( a mechanic) change the belt on my '02 higlander v6 and it was quite difficult take it to a good shop or even the dealer

Bank 1 = Right side of the exhaustSensor 1 = the first 02 in line before cat.Sensor 2 = the last 02 in line after the cat.Bank 2 = Left side of the exhaustSensor 1 = the first 02 in line before cat.Sensor 2 = the last 02 in line after the cat.

Unless you have upgraded your distributor, ecu, or tbi, headers will not call for a change in timing, so if that's all you have done, set it as shown in your manual, making sure the 02 sensor is properly either welded into the header flange, if a good set, their will be a tap for the sensor.jr

I have a 2002 Avalanche abd replaced it last year---8.1 liter-----it took my mechanic about 3 hours to get it out/in.

With an 02 sensor wrench. You practically have to put the car on a lift and if you're not careful you could strip the sensor itself or the "bung" in the exhaust pipe. I would recommend having it done by a mechanic or atleast have them show you before attempting to do it yourself.

On the front oxygen sensor( located on the exhuast manifold towards the front easily accessed from under the car.) you have to take it off with a oxygen sensor wrench. then you have to cut and attach the new 02 sensor to the old wires. Once that is done torque the new sensor down to 33 ft lbs. Your done!!

Hi Every one Can you help meWhere Is the heater 02 sensor and heater circut fault sensor 1 for 1999 Honda Civic?

That would be the sensor after the catalytic converter.

the black wires are for the heater circuit, the blue and white are the sensor wires. the universal sensor probably wont work though, its best to bite the bullet and get the correct one from toyota.
