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.

Good Replacement O2 sensor

By

Comments about Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor:

I purchased this product to correct an issue I had with my 2007 Ford explorer limited v8. I had a recurring error code (P0420) that was indicating that my bank 1 catalytic converter was running outside of its parameters. I swapped the 2 existing downstream O2 sensors and went for a drive, the problem switched to bank 2. I used this information to determine that the downstream oxygen sensor was faulty, and ordered this as a replacement.

The fit was perfect, exact factory match in size and description. The cable and connector were of an identical length and shape as the OEM part. The unit even came pre lubricated with antiseize to save just a bit of time.

After I got the unit installed, I cleared the error code and went on to monitor my sensor results. The new sensor was switching 4 times faster than the original, and so resolved my problem.

Overall am excellent unit at a fair price. Would purchase this Bosch item again if I needed one.

                          Hi Stan, glad to assist you! I think you will need four oxygen sensors, two for upstream (left and right) and two for downstream (left and right). The NTK Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 22500) is an exact fit upstream oxygen sensor and the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 15719) is an exact downstream oxygen sensor. 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 will find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle.

                          Hello Anthony. I will be happy to help with your question. The oxygen sensor you linked is a downstream sensor, it mentions 2 required meaning they are not side specific so it can be used in bank 1 or bank 2 but in the downstream section of the exhaust. For the upstream the Part Number you will need will be 13117 and this one is 2 required so it can be used on bank 1 or bank 2.

                          Hi Keith, I'm glad to assist you. There are number of things that could be causing this P0420 catalyst efficiency code. The most common thing is the catalytic converter itself is no longer functioning properly. The other likely thing is the rear O2 (oxygen) sensor is no longer working properly. Other things could include exhaust leaks, damaged exhaust pipes, damaged O2 sensor wiring/connectors, plugged catalytic converter, etc. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                          A:

                          Hi Ron! There are various possible causes for the P2197 Heated Oxygen Sensor (Bank 2 Sensor 1) Biased / Stuck Lean. Please check for air leaks in the Air Induction system, exhaust manifold, in the exhaust pipes, in the EGR and PCV systems and in their related hoses and/or valve. Check for engine vacuum leaks or if the dip stick is not seated. The damaged fuel pressure regulator or low fuel pressure may also be the cause. HO2S connector is damage, HO2S failure, PCM failure and Induction System problems such as air leaks after the MAF sensor may also cause this code. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                          Hi Hectic! The oxygen sensors on your 1999 Ford Explorer is located under the hood, driver side, lower the engine area, below exhaust manifold flange, should be mounted in exhaust pipe. The bank 1 bank 2 lean fuel mixture may also be caused by a bad mass air flow sensor. Or the snorkel from the mass air flow sensor to the throttle body could be ripped. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                          Hi Clemkadiddlehopper, happy to help you! The Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 15717) is an exact fit oxygen sensor for your 1996 Ford F250 XLT 4X4 7.5L and it can be used as either upstream or downstream sensor.
