I purchased three O2 sensors for my 1999 Ford ranger 3.0 because the Check Engine light was on. I had replaced the DPF EGR sensor as suggested by many on line blogs but it didn't work. After changing all three 02 sensors, it's been two weeks and the Check Engine light is still off. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I ordered this from the website and picked up at the store. Had to go to 2 different stores to get enough sensors to complete the job. Got home and the connectors on the Bosch sensors were ROUND and the ones on my car were SQUARE. No way to make them work. Not even close. [...]

      I would recommend getting the Alternate fit for right and left sides. I'm glad I did, otherwise I would have had short cables. They give you instructions and zip-ties to tie off excess cable as needed.

            I have a 99 Ford Ranger 2.5 liter. Had a bad sensor so I replaced it with the Bosch. I got this one because the wires are longer. If I would of bought the cheaper one, it would have been to short, even though it said exact fit for my truck. Look under the specs and it will tell you how long they are. Go for the longer one!!!

                This sensor fit our '01 Escape v6 perfectly - the connector was correct, wire length was correct and threads were correct. After a few weeks of use, it seems to be holding out fine, but I'd hope it would last another 100,000 miles.

                          Hi Oldman, glad to assist you! It depends upon the skill level of the person performing the operation. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                          With reference to your inquiry on the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor - Part No. 15718, upstream is before the catalytic converter, downstream is after the catalytic converter. The upstream sensor tells how the engine runs whereas the downstream sensor only tells if the catalytic converter is going bad. On some cars both sensors are the same part number, or the only difference is the length of wiring.
