worth it

I've used other, more costly tools, and they've failed. This off-set O2 socket is the best I've workd with so far. It might be cheaper, but surely not in quality.

It broke!

My O2 sensor was a bit too tight, and this thing broke! Why don't they make these things out of steel or something?! See the picture to see how it broke.

      Puy it on my o2sensor one time and as soon as I put a little pressure on it it spred open and just spun around the bolt. I would not recomend this tool to anyone that has no other way to remove a o2 sensor.

          Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

          I bought this despite the mixed reviews it did nothing but flex and skip so I tossed it aside and beat the old o2 sensor to hell to get it off finishing it off with a deepwell socket to get it removed. I installed new o2 snug with antisieze just to find out that the new o2 is defective and slow reading so then I thought I try the freshly easy installed o2 it could do it right???

          No I stripped the tool not the o2! Some sort of a sick joke to waste my time

              This special tool allows you to get the oxygen sensors broken loose in tight working conditions. The tool slips around the wires and fits snugly onto the sensor. I found it works best with a 3/8" breaker bar. It allows easy tightening of the new sensor.

                Used this to replace an O2 sensor on my 01 Jeep Wrangler. Got the job done but it wants to slide off the drive of my breaker bar.

                  This tool is used to help with changing the Oxygen Sensor. It worked great for the purpose it was intended for, I had no problems with it. It really helped get the job done quicker than I expected to.

                  Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

                  Bought one of these yesterday. Lucky to have one in my local store. There was only one left in stick. Got home and it does not fit my 3/8" drive ratchet. The slot in the wrench I got was too small. It could have done the job. I had to return it and I got the Motorcraft Oxygen Sensor Vacuum Socket as a replacement. Depending on the location of your oxygen sensor, you might benefit more from this Offset wrench or the Vacuum Socket. Nonetheless, I am satisfied with the quality of Motorcraft. Definitely not the best out there. But for the price, you can't beat this and it is readily available at your local store.

                  Piece of advice:
                  To avoid possibly breaking your wrench/socket, rounding your sensor, and unnecessary frustration, spray some penetrating oil on your old sensor before hand and warm up the vehicle to loosen the old sensor before attempting removal.
                  I sprayed WD-40 on my old sensor and drove around for 10 minutes twice. I removed my sensor with a regular ratchet, no breaker bars needed. It'll be a lot of help specially most sensors are in tight spaces.
                  K thanks. Good luck!

                      I bought this socket because it was the only O2 sensor socket that was available in my area. The quality of it is dreadful and doesn't have that "bite" to loosen the sensor , instead it just rounds off the head of the sensor. Just be warned and find yourself a higher grade tool.
