    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.

                        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.

                          • Q:

                            I have a 98 GMC Safari Van,RWD,80,000 miles. I was told the check engine code I was showing was P0420. Catalyst system efficiency below threshold bank 1. Your guys told me that meant bad catalytic converter or a bad o2 sensor. I did a test on my catalytic converter with a rubber mallet to see if anything was shaking inside like rust and sediment chips etc. It sounded crisp with nothing I could hear shaking around in it. I'm not losing power when I drive also. I'm assuming the converter is fine. I am however noticing my gas mileage dwindling and I think a sensor is to blame instead. How many sensors do I have? I seen 2 sensors running down the passenger side before and after the catalytic converter and 1 on the driver side connecting to a pipe from the catalytic converter as it goes towards the front of the vehicle. Another question is can I use the same sensor for all of them or do I need a different one for each position? Last Question is how do I check to be sure which sensor is out?

                              I'm happy to help, SafariVan! That's a very low number of miles for a 1998! Your 1998 GMC Safari RWD 4.3L V6 should have 3 oxygen sensors, 2 upstream and 1 downstream. The same oxygen sensor can be utilized in all positions on your vehicle, with most brands. This Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 15717) is not the correct sensor for your van.

                              Denso Part No. 234-4646 or NTK Part No. 21517 both indicate they are able to be utilized in all 3 positions on your vehicle. The code that you are receiving would indicate that your downstream sensor (after the catalytic converter) is the faulty sensor.

                              Other possible causes for the P0420 code are damaged wiring for your rear oxygen sensor, a faulty engine coolant temperature sensor, exhaust leaks (exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, muffler or exhaust pipe), retarded spark timing, leaking fuel injector or high fuel pressure, cylinder misfire or oil contamination.

                              Another way to check your catalytic converter is to check the smell of the exhaust. A failing catalytic converter will typically produce an odor that smells like sulfur or rotten eggs. Even if there is no rattling the converter, you can still have a faulty converter. The catalyst can overheat and melt solid.

                              A repair manual for your vehicle may be able to help you further diagnose the symptoms (Haynes Part No. 24010) and provide additional replacement instructions. If you determine that you need to replace the oxygen sensor, an oxygen sensor wrench such as Autocraft Part No. AC679 and some rust penetrant such as WD-40 Specialist Rust Penetrant (Part No. 300004) or PB Blaster Penetrating Catalyst (Part No. 16-PB), will make the work easier.

                              I'm glad to assist, Santa! Your 2000 Lincoln Navigator has a 5.4L or 5400cc engine Triton V8 engine. Did the Advance Auto Parts team member provide you with the diagnostic trouble code or indicate if it was bank 1 or 2 and sensor 1 or 2? Some scanners may shorten this to O2 sensor 1/1, 1/2, 2/1 or 2/2. This indicates the bank first then the sensor number. Your vehicle will have 2 upstream sensors and two downstream sensors. Bank 1 indicates the driver's side and bank 2 indicates passenger side. Sensor 1 is upstream and sensor 2 is downstream.

                              This Bosch premium oxygen sensor is an alternative fit part for your vehicle in the upstream position. The original equipment upstream sensor for your Navigator is NTK Part No. 22060 and an exact fit downstream is NTK Part No. 22500.

                              The job itself is fairly simple and doesn't require any special tools, however there are some tools that can make easier work of the replacement. An Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench Part No. AC679 and some rust penetrant such as WD-40 Specialist Rust Penetrant Part No. 300004 or PB Blaster Part No. 16-PB can definitely make the job easier.

                              I highly recommend eye protection when you're working on your exhaust, as well as some elbow grease and patience.

                              Hi Steve, great question! It has three oxygen sensors, two on each exhaust manifold. The front two are called "Upstream oxygen sensors" and the rear one is called "Downstream oxygen sensor".

                              Hi Denny! The answer to this question is simple. Your Check Engine Light is on because the computer is "throwing a code." In tech speak this means that the computer has detected a malfunctioning system, and has produced an error message which caused the Check Engine Light to come on. With a code reader, you can read this error, called an OBD Code, and determine which oxygen sensor need replacement.
