I noticed, for example that all their O2 sensors were $40 or under. Example, a 1-wire sensor #25162693 which I believe is for 92-92 Bonnies, is $26.95. I saw a number of multi-wire O2s for $35.95 - 39.95.

Also a lot of connectors, evap canistors for @ $40 IIRC, etc. Certainly worth checking out when looking for pieces parts IMO.
Please don't take this as a "my dealer is better than your dealer" thing. I just want to open people up to some options that I know are GOOD options!

That said, if you talk to John at RMS, you know you've got a guy that will help you out. I usually just give a quick call rather than an email. I still like to have a human being verify my order. By all means, check them against GMPartsDirect. I bet they'd price match, if you found a GMPD price that was cheaper.

Since62...Lash is agreeing with you and backing you up by posting some of the prices. There is no "your dealer better than mine" on the site. We are all after the best parts for the best prices and I have already started to put together a possible stickey or post somewhere that we can have to list out the many parts distributors at our disposal.

An idea that was sparked by your post about places with delco parts and prices better than GMPD. I for one appreciate others work at finding good prices and mentioning it for all to benefit from.

Sorry, I didn't intend to make it look like Lash was disagreeing...I knew he was supporting me. I shouldn't have quoted him, and just added my comment as a general reply to everyone. In rereading my posts, it may have looked like I was bringing some negativity, and I really wasn't meaning to. I just wanted to get it out there that a LOT of people have tried the GMPartsDirect site, and then switched over to using Dal for the prices, knowledge, and great service. Seriously, google Dal Slabaugh, and look at the praise!

Hey, Lash is fine with it all! I just had a long conversation with him in the mirror and he'* just glad to have other options for these GM replacement parts! :P

I have purchased a lot of parts from www.rockauto.com out of Wisconsin. They list the Delco heated O2 sensor for $43.79.

Shipping is fast and reasonable. E.g., for the above part to Ames, Iowa, shipping is $6.46. If you don't live in WI, you pay no state sales tax, either.

www.rockauto.com is a good one, too. Just know that there'* always a discount code out there to be had. Right now, I know that 392620366789 is a good one, until May 16,2006.

I've been told that 90FDEE62E805 is a discount code that never expires. They're both good for 5%. May not be much, but will probably cover shipping, or maybe more depending on what you order.

Trying to get back on course with this thread, I am curious as to how the Great O2 Sensor Test is going. Let'* see some new MPG figures.

I am a little more than half way into my first tank since changing my O2 sensor and cleaning the fuel injectors. So far, there is 232 miles on the tank, with more than 1/3 tank left. Of course, the fuel gauge is not a very precise measure, but normally when I hit 265 miles, my fuel guage would start complaining (chime).

Thanks,
John

When I changed the O2 sensor in my '95, I went from 18 to 24 mpg. But with winter driving, the mileage has dropped down to around 20-22mpg.
