I oredered this 02 sensor online and it came in an opened and torn package. The threads on the sensor were dirty as well...like it had definitely been installed in a vehicle previously. I installed the sensor anyway, because I did not have time to send it back and wait for another. I cleared the codes and the car ran fine for 500 miles then the idiot light came back on and the car started idling erraticly. Needless to say, I am not impressed with this product.

        It's supposed to be an 'exact fit' For my 99 suburban 350 engine 2 wd automatic it had the wrong fitting and therefore does not fit

        Advance online parts are wrong for the stated application quite often Wrong turn signal switch for my 88 F350, Wrong front brake rotor for my C3500 Dually and this sensor is wrong. plus others the online listing said are 'exact fit' Advance is great in lots of ways, but wasting time should not be one of them. Give us the same computer list of parts the stores use

              Well there is not much to an oxygen sensor. Either it works do to good engineering or it is a piece of junk because of poor engineering. Bosch is well known for making good products. I installed them myself with an O2 sensor tool. The great thing I discovered was the threads on the O2 sensors were already prepped with anti-seize. It was applied properly on the thread furthest away from the top of the sensor to prevent contamination. Once I removed the old oxygen sensor I disconnected the plastic connector and put the new one right on. It was a snap!

                        I'm happy to help, GC! This Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 13474) is the downstream oxygen sensor on your 2000 Cadillac Escalade 4WD 5.7L V8 with Automatic Transmission. This information can be found after entering your vehicle information on the website and checking in the Description tab under the Product Application(s) heading.

                        It's possible that Dorman OE Solutions Transmission/Transfer Case Output Speed Sensor (Part No. 917-618) may correct the C0236 code that you are receiving. It is located on the transfer case. It could also be that the harness is open or shorted or even a faulty EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module).

                        With reference to your inquiry on the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor - part# 13474, for the codes P0151, P0154, P1153 check for vacuum leak(s) at the intake gaskets on Bank 2 and the EGR. Check wiring and connections for proper voltage(s) and grounds from the pre-cat O2 Sensor on Bank 2 to the PCM. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                        At 1000 miles take it back for a replacement. If they dont honor the warrenty then, first check the wiring for faults. If they show okay the then simply replace it with an 'aftermarket' sensor on ebay which will be a lot less than diagnostics and they will never be able to charge for the sensor.

                        A:

                        Corrosion on the old sensor and exhaust pipe may be an obstacle. Remove the sensor once you've gotten the tool ( Socket wrench, Oxygen sensor socket or 22 mm socket) onto it by turning the tool counterclockwise. A degree of force will be required, but if it doesn't feel like it's going to budge, heating up the portion of the exhaust pipe that surrounds the threads of the oxygen sensor might help. This can be done with a portable propane torch. Don't heat the sensor as well. You're goal is to expand the exhaust pipe and not the sensor. Being careful not to burn yourself, retry removing the sensor with the wrench or socket until you're successful. If you don't have a torch, try running the car long enough to heat the exhaust system up for a while and then liberally spray lubrication oil on the sensor. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                    • Q:

                      I have 4 O2 sensors on 98 Pontiac Grand Prix.
                      I am told, 1 sensor in the exh.manifold, 1 in the exh.man. crossover pipe, 1 before the cat. conv., and 1 after the cat. conv.
                      2 sensors went bad & caused computer codes.
                      I can't determine if Bosch Part#13474 Upstream sensor, is the one in the exh. man., crossover pipe, or just before the catalytic converter.
                      It was easy to determine which one of the sensors that went bad after the catalytic converter, since there is only one sensor after the cat.converter.
                      Although, I am unable to determine which of the 3 sensors before the catalytic converter went bad, as it only vaguely explains that it is located before the catalytic converter, instead of whether it is the exh.manifold sensor, crossover sensor, of just before the cat.conv.
                      The 2 computer trouble codes are P0141 and P0137, if this is of any help in making the determination.
                      How can I determine which sensor to replace before the cat.conv.for Bosch Part#13474 O2 sensor?

                        A:

                        The code P0137 causes due to faulty o2 sensor exhaust leak near the rear sensor, due to plugged catalyst, short to voltage on O2 signal circuit, high resistance or open on O2 signal circuit. The code P0141 occur due to open or short to ground in the wiring harness, O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance, O2 heater element resistance is high, Internal short or open in the heater element. These both codes shows bank1 sensor2. The bank1 sensor2 on 1998 Pontiac grand prix should be located between the catalyst converter and the resonator on the rear side of the front manifold/pipe almost under the cover.

                        A:

                        The Oxygen sensor plays an important role in monitoring the oxygen content of the car's exhaust system. It determines the optimal mixture of air to fuel ratio needed to run the vehicle. A defective sensor can greatly affect your vehicle's fuel consumption because it allows the vehicle to use more fuel than what it should resulting in poor gas mileage., INCREASED VEHICLE EMISSIONS: A malfunctioning Oxygen sensor can result in poor air/fuel mixtures or lean or rich fuel-injection delivery, all of which can cause improper or inefficient engine combustion and increased vehicle emissions., ROUGH ENGINE IDLE: For maximum engine performance, proper engine combustion is crucial. A malfunctioning Oxygen sensor can cause a car's engine to idle in a choppy, rough manner. This is caused by the less-than-optimum engine combustion firings that result in poor engine performance., ENGINE MISSING: A malfunctioning Oxygen sensor causes an engine's air/fuel mixture to become too lean or restricted, the explosions within an engine's cylinders will be altered. Normally, an air/fuel mixture that is too lean (much air, not enough fuel) will cause an engine to miss, or misfire, especially when an engine is idling., ENGINE HESITATION: Engine hesitation is experienced only during acceleration, while an engine miss can be experienced both during engine acceleration and idle. A malfunctioning oxygen sensor may misread or misinterpret an engine's air/fuel mixture or air/fuel requirements and cause too little or too much air and/or fuel to enter an engine's cylinders, especially during acceleration. This can cause an engine to hesitate, or stumble.
                        For compatibility of this part Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor, Part No. 13474 manufactured by Bosch with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.

                        The easiest way to find the Oxygen sensors on your Pontiac Grand Am SE is to follow the exhaust pipe connected to the exhaust manifold. The upstream sensor will be located along the front exhaust pipe before the catalytic converter. The downstream sensor is found right after the catalytic converter on the back exhaust pipe.
