Nobody'* mentioned a torch? I know that not everybody has easy access to one, but it'* an approach that I've seen. Especially after not being able to remove an O2 sensor ('97 Isuzu Rodeo) after an entire afternoon.

Torches are ok on an Isuzu. Just not on a Pontiac.

Not a bad idea, but be careful with the rear plug wires.

But yeah. The Isuzu has a longitudinally mounted motor, so that makes a difference too...

series II'* in the 95-99 Bonnies is just as easy as the series 1'*...LOL
Took me less time to do it on the SII than the SI
