    My car had the "Check Engine" light on for many months while I was waiting until I had the money to fix the "Oxygen Sensor" 2 problem. I was very disappointed when I replaced 1st) the "flex pipe" on the exhaust system and 2nd) the resonators at the end of the exhaust pipes (my car has two!) --- and my car still didn't pass inspection because the "Check Engine Light" was STILL ON! The Inspection Station let me off (i.e., gave me the inspection sticker, but told me to get this fixed as soon as possible). However, I was still kind of worried driving around all winter with the "Check Engine Light" on. Now that the "Check Engine Light" is off, I am no longer worried my car will break down at any time! Since I didn't actually install the product [Premium Oxygen Sensor, manufactured by Bosch), I am not aware of the great or not so great characteristics of this particular part, as compared to other brands. However, I know Bosch is a good brand and I also know my "Check Engine Light" is now off! So I am a satisfied Advance Auto Parts customer. I also have a new mechanic who I trust -- which is important to me since I am a woman and I know some mechanics like to cheat women because they realize many of us don't know a lot about cars. . .

    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.

        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 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.

                                      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 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.
