Default O2 sensor

does anyone use the Denso O2 sensor? at $38.99 (RockAuto) that is darn cheap for an O2 sensor if it works, the AC Delco ($63.99) one i put in only lasted 38,000 miles. Denso makes a good plug but i dont know about the O2 sensors. So if somebody has any info on the Denso O2 , please share, if you got good or bad gas milage, how long it lasted .......

3rd in 25K?

What do you think is burning the things up. Sounds like the 02'* are working overtime. That is definitely abnormal performance for any 02.

Paul, the Denso O2 is suppose to be more lead tolerant. Rockauto has it for $39 ,how much more would it be to have it shipped to Canada? cant be much $2 or $3 , maybe send it as a gift ? keep it in mind.

p.*. this is off the Intense web site, look at the last sentence :

DENSO First Time FitŪ oxygen sensors are specifically designed to meet the challenging demands of today'* engines. Each of DENSO'* oxygen sensors is constructed of the highest quality materials available. High-quality stainless steel, porous polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), fluorine rubber, aluminum oxide, high-grade platinum and ceramics are used in each DENSO First Time FitŪ oxygen sensor. The bottom line is: DENSO produces the finest oxygen sensors in the world. How can we say this? Because, in so many cases, DENSO designed, tested, and manufactured the OE unit.

OE-Standard Quality
DENSO can guarantee the quality of the product they produce because every component that leaves their factories has been designed with precision, manufactured to the strictest OE standards and subjected to rigorous safety and performance tests. In the end, it all comes down to quality - that'* what the DENSO name stands for.

These oxygen sensors have proven to be more resistant to failure when using leaded fuels.

Good to know Rod, thanks for pointing that out.

I need a spare O2 sensor so it sounds like a plan.

Canada customs dings us pretty good for "handling" fees, taxes and brokerage. It usually costs me in Cdn dollars, double the price in US dollars by the time shipping cost is factored in.
Sending it as a gift will save me 25%.

.....they even charged me $20. when Intense shipped me the free warranty replacement gaskets.
