Decreased fuel mileage at around 50-60k is a good indicator. They get lazy, and don't always throw a code or light.

What'* wrong with Bosch sensors Kenn? Is it a specific year of Bonnevilles that hate them, or bonnevilles in general?

Nearly everyone that'* run them has been sadly disappointed.

My personal experience was an age swap. My stock Delco sensor had 70k miles on it when I bought the car. The Bosch sensor recovered mileage, but I didn't know if it was enough. 30 days later, it completely failed. The AC Delco replacement gave 2mpg better performance than the Bosch when it was new, and still performs admirably to this day (with 103k on the car now).

Many others have had similar experiences. MANY others.
