    Replaced both oxygen sensors in my 2003 Ford Focus as advised by the computer trouble shooter at Advanced Auto. Not only did my check engine light go out, my gas mileage is back up to 225 miles per my 10 gallon tank. Car running good now. Thanks to Advanced Auto salespeople.

    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.

                            Special tools needed? I have a 2000 Lincoln Navigator with a 5.4cc-poss a 5.7cc ??? (I believe-just bought it)all wheel drive/ac/& all the bells. Check engine light came on & Adv.Auto-Parts read the code=bad oxygen Sensor. How many does my vehicle have? Is there a way to tell which one is bad? & is this a simple replace without special tools? thank you very much

                            • CUSTOMER CARE

                              A:

                              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 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.

                              Hi Bob, glad to assist you! There are two oxygen sensors on your Ford Taurus SE. 1 upstream (before catalytic converter) and 1 downstream (after catalytic converter).

                            I have a 1995 Ford Explorer V6. I have a engine surging problem going uphill or accelerating from a stop. I unplugged both oxygen sensors which are still the the original factory units (truck has over 170'000 miles, and the surging stopped. Does this mean the sensors are bad. No check engine light is on.

                              Hi Joe, my answer to your question on the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor - part# 15717 is that the oxygen sensors may be the possible cause of the problem on your 1995 Ford Explorer. However, without the presence of the vehicle we could neither diagnose the problem nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest you to get assistance from a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.
