Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

I bought this as it was a premium part from Bosch and the only O2 sensor in stock at my local Advance..

I wasn't aware of the OE Smart Link Technology I did subtract 1 star due to this, but I added a few because this O2 sensor will practically work on all vehicles that use an O2 sensor.

The reason I took 1 star off was because it requires you to cut the old O2 sensor wire, use the included splicing kit, and use your old adapter. This just takes more time to do the install is all.. But it is definitely a good part for those willing to take the time and not overwhelmed by the instructions.

Will work on basically any O2 sensor (1 wire, 2 wire, 3 wire, and 4 wire applications) So its pretty well universal.

If you are looking for something plug-n-play then you don't want the OE Smart Link O2 Sensor.

Better than bosch OEM sensor

      Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

      Bosch O2 sensor with smart link in my opinion is better than the Bosch OEM direct fit sensor. The waterproof electrical connector allows the user to remove more of the old wiring and replaces the factory connectors. The factory harnesses tend have wires pull out or damage before the go into connector. As stated Bosch smartlink allows you to remove up to 3 feet of old wire and remove the original harness connectors with boschs waterproof smart link tech. Lookup the design on the smartlink tech from boschs website and see for yourself.

          I use m,y truck daily for work, I have to have depending parts and the right parts to insure that my truck has no or very little down time.
          I own an exterminating company and have several vehicals on the road.
          The thing I did not like was the plug on the o2 sensor had to be put on other than that it works great.
          Making sure the o2 sensor is in tip top condition is important consindering the price of fuel now along with the plugs and wires I bought.
          I have for many years and will continue to reccomend Advance for all of my auto parts needs.
          If they don't have it in stock they'll have the part you need very quickly.

              Before obtaining this sensor kit, I had issues with finding a sensor with the same connector as the old one on my vehicle. This kit comes with great instructions and comes with the appropriate material to splice the old connector to this new sensor.

              I did have a slight advantage of already having the appropiate tools and past experience with splicing nonautomotive wiring projects.

                  At first, looking at the product, I wasn't sure what to think. After installing... great product application. I had trouble finding a sensor with the correct connector. This product comes with good instructions and material that splices the old connector with this new sensor. I had a slight advantage already being familiar with wire splicing for nonautomotive projects and having neccessary tools available (ex. wire cutters & wire strippers).

                        Hi Bob, glad to help you! The Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 15664) is for upstream and you will require 2 sensors and the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 15717) is a downstream sensor which is also 2 required for your 2002 Ford F-150 with a 5.4 engine.

                    • Q:

                      I'm not a mechanic but I do little repairs on my 2 cars (2001 Chrysler Sebring 2.7L, V-6 with re-mfr engine just installed & 1999 Ford Contour SE 2.5L, V-6). My Chrysler state inspection EMISSION test failed; check engine light's on. Test indicated "DOWNSTREAM Oxygen Sensor needs replaced." The check engine light's on in my Ford also. With no mechanic skills, would I be able to change this oxygen sensor, or is it something for mechanic skills only?

                        A:

                        I'm glad to assist, Edwin! Replacing the downstream oxygen sensor on your 2001 Chrysler Sebring 2.7L V6 is a great do-it-yourself job. The difficulty of the job will depend upon your skill level. There are some tools that can make installing this Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor with OE SmartLink (Part No. 15729) easier, such as an AutoCraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench (Part No. AC679) and PB B'Laster (Part No. 16-PB). A repair manual such as, Haynes Part No. 25040, may also be helpful.

                        The universal style oxygen sensors require you to cut and splice wires, if you would prefer not to do that, Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 13138) connects to the current connections on the vehicle.

                        Before purchasing any parts for your 1999 Ford Contour SE 2.5L V6, check with your local Advance Auto Parts store about having one of our team members read the stored diagnostic trouble codes for FREE.
