Well, when was the O2 last changed?

You say bad mileage, any rotten egg smell? that was my indicator to change it. Its a good thing to do...then don't worry for 50K miles

That will make all right

I doubt it was ever changed. I guess Ill do it. Its a real pain to get off though. I think ill break down and buy the right wrench for it.

It costed me 30 bucks for my sensor. We used an open wrench to remove it. It wasn't very hard.

I guess I will find out what an O2 sen cost when I get mine replaced later on this week when I take my car in for a tune up.
