Should some kind of lube or sealant be put on the threads of the sensor when putting new one in?
Any tricks on getting one out?
I also read of one person resetting the PCM when replacing the sensor. What is that and should it be done and how is it done?
Anything else I should know about when replacing one? Thanks
1.Here'* an Oxygen Application Chart I developed a little while back! http://www.bonnevilleattitude.com/fo...opic.php?t=568
2.All new O2 Sensors should already have "Anti-Seize" compound on their threads.
3.Cut off the old wire & use Penetrating Fluid to soak the threads of the old one first. Then using a wrench or deep socket remove the old sensor. Next, install the new sensor with a wrench or proper O2 Socket only! If you don't you'll damage the wire & will have to start over!
4.PCm doesn't need to be reset really, but you can if you want to by either disconnecting the battery for a while or (depending on year) use a Tech II Scanner to remove the codes.
