i would advise letting the engine warm up a bit before you attempt to remove it, just be careful, hot exhaust manifolds in tight places can get ugly..

also put some anti-seize on those threads, i believe GM recommends a special kind, but i would think any kind would do.

Both hints straight out of the FSM!

Many new O2s come with antisieze on the threads already, you'll know if yours does.

If you order from GMPD, it comes with anti-sieze, and a big warning not to add more (and they might send you a hat, like they did for me)

Be careful.... I take it your car had the single wire sensor? Some 93'* actually had the 3 wire heated sensor... Just being sure here...

OK...I will check the wires closely before I remove the old sensor. I didnt look too closely and was relying upon the parts catalog when I said it was a single wire. I suppose it'* a good idea to unhook the battery before doing this, correct?

For anyone who uses them, if I order this from GMPD, how long does it take to arrive?

Thanks,
John

GMPD will ship quickly if in stock. This should be a stock item.

If it were a special order..say like Grand Prix seat heater switches...those take 2 weeks easy.

I don't remember the exact timeframe, but everything I've ordered from them (including the O2 sensor) got to me pretty quick. And I got a free hat with my last order....
