I put this oxygen sensor in a 2005 ford Taurus. It fit perfectly and plugged right in no problem. the old oxygen sensor was difficult to remove in fact the special oxygen sensor socket I bought wasn't strong enough to do the job (it flexed because of the slot cut in the side). I had to cut the wires off so I could use a regular deep well socket. It was fairly easy to break the sensor loose with the regular socket.The new sensor had anti-seize pre applied to the threads so hopefully it will be easier if there is a next time.

I bought 4 Bosch Oxygen Sensors. The description said that they were a direct fit for my 1998 Ford Expedition. Three fit without a problem. But the downstream driver's side sensor needed a wire bundle at least an inch longer. I had to modify the trucks's harness to make the Bosch replacement one fit.

Otherwise, after I put all four in, the engine operated normally and with no check engine lights.

            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.

                            Hi, glad to help you! This is an exact upstream oxygen sensor for your 2000 Ford Ranger Xlt 4.0L and it is located before the catalytic converter on the front passenger side. To get more specific information on the location of this part I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle. The repair manual part number for your vehicle is 36071.

                            Happy to help you Lourdes! Code P2196 reads O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Rich (Bank 2 Sensor 1) Code, and code P2197 O2 Sensor Signal Biased/Stuck Lean (Bank 2 Sensor 1) Code. The codes are both in relation to the front sensor (when you open the hood and look down it's the sensor near the radiator). The senor linked is an exact fit for your 07 Freestyle and would be the only sensor you would replace. Before making your purchase have a certified mechanic confirm the diagnosis.

                            I'm happy to help, Mikey J! Your 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty 6.8L V10 O2 sensors have an 18mm x 1.5 thread. If the threads are only slightly stripped I suggest a chaser, such as Lisle Oxygen Sensor Thread Chaser (Part No. LIS12230) or AutoCraft 14mm x 18mm Spark Plug Hole Thread Chaser (Part No. AC544). If your threads are worse you may consider a Heli-Coil Oxygen Sensor Thread Repair Kit (Part No. HEL4833).
