I think the O2 sensor socket from AutoZone is 3/8" drive. I like to adapt up to a 1/2" and put my breaking bar on it!

My ft. lbs. torque wrench is also 1/2" drive so adapting up is key for me.

Depends on what size the drive on the socket you bought/will buy is. Typically 3/8 like Vital mentions.

I checked around locally, and no one carries a GM o2 for my car, except a Gm dealer, who wants $76.00 for one, and a day or 2 to get it in.

I went to Gm parts direct and it shows 2 different o2'* for my car.

Does anyone have the correct, or best part number for my 96 SSEi? thanks in advance.

Sam

I think it has to do with if it'* heated or not Sam. check the number of wires. I think they list it that way on GMPD

OK, today I get one part number when searching for an o2. the part number I get today is: 25162693 . Is this the correct o2 for my car?


Thanks, Sam

GMPD sure gets a lot for shipping, but even so, it'* still half the price of buying the same part locally at the dealer. 26 for the 02, as compared to 76 even though GMPD gets 10 to ship it. 36 shipped.

25312184 , 4 wire heated is what you need... Unless they have an Upgraded PN... AC Delco number AFS75

Just checked and that sensor croses to your car... This sensor was used in the 94-96 bonnies...

You should see how many GM cars it crosses to..
