For those that "think" this is an "exact" fit. It does NOT state this on the product page as one reviewer said previously. It says it is a "universal" fit. If you want an "exact" fit, without having to strip wires (which is about a 30 minute job at best)- then you need to look on the product pages for: "direct" fit; NOT "Universal". I'm a 47 yr old woman who has had her mechanic replace several of these on various vehicles, so yes... I do know what I'm talking about. Plus, look at the price; it's cheaper than the "direct" fit so that's kind of a dead give away that you are going to have to Jimmy around with it a bit.

After much troubleshooting found part not able to work with the Honda car . Tried to save customer some monEy and time but after 4 hours of testing and checking found that 02 sensor was the problem. Was also told that these don't usually work by the parts guy at advance. Bought the one from honda and 20 minutes later it was back on the road and all codes were cleared. Parts guy at Honda dealer just laughed we knew !!!

          I could not afford to buy a OEM for my daughters Suzuki Aerio SX. I am a 54 year old woman and I did it myself. If you have a hardtime spray it with PB Blaster first and run the motor. This is for an upstream. BUT I am checking to see if the downstream has the same amount of wires since this one was too long and maybe it will work downstream. The instructions can be confusing. First it says strip the wires ends. Well if you do that you'll have a hard time sliding them into the connector holes. I had to put electrical tape on the ends and the wires didn't fray when trying to get into the connector holes. Beside that I am happy ! I would buy this again.

              I purchased the oxygen sensor for a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor which came up "exact fit" with the green checkmark and all. So I'm thinking this should work just fine...boy was I wrong after getting it to shop, the sensor outlet was even wider than the original. There was no tweaking it. Simply did not match as stated! So I ended up having to get the proper part elsewhere which wasted alot of unnecessary time during the appt
              The point is don't believe everything you read online. It's not always as accurate as it seems.

                    Works just fine; I threw out the complicated "Smart Link" splice kit and just spliced using good old crimp connectors and LOTS of electrical tape. There is a helpful chart on the instructions if you are unsure of which wire goes where. Don't buy extra anti-seize compound, threads are pre-coated. Much cheaper than the exact fit connector and works just as well if you aren't afraid of splicing 4 wires!

                        spend the additional $30 and get the model that has the connector that is already done. I spent a good hour on the "special" Universal connector model. Buy the bolt on and click in and forget about the $30 difference its simply not worth the hassle attempting to merge the old connector to the new sensor.

                              The description on the website showed this as an UPSTREAM replacement and this is not the case. This is a DOWNSTREAM replacement and should only be used to test the cat's performance.
                              This was used on 2003 Acura RSX Base and did not fix the service light for the UPSTREAM O2 being bad. The DENSO 234-9004 had to be used. If used as a DOWNSTREAM it works just fine.

                                  I'm glad to be of assistance, bil! It will be located in the area just beyond the catalytic converter. It is a large boxy device attached to your exhaust pipe. The oxygen sensor will resemble a fat cylindrical peg with wires flowing out of the tip.

                                  A:

                                  Hi Laurie, there is no specific interval for replacement. You only need to change oxygen sensors when they wear out. You would normally get a "check engine" light if one of them completely fails. Instructions to replace the oxygen sensor: 1. Locate the oxygen sensor on your vehicle by looking for a part that looks like a spark plug that sticks out from the exhaust pipe. It will have an electrical connection attached to it. 2. Disconnect the electrical connection on the oxygen sensor. Use a flat tip screwdriver to push in the tabs and pull the connection apart. 3. Unscrew the oxygen sensor off the exhaust pipe using either an open-end wrench or a special socket made to remove it. The majority of oxygen sensors will take an SAE 7/8 inch wrench. 4. Compare your new oxygen sensor to the old one. If the new one did not come with an electrical connection, but just with the wires stubbed out, you need to do a little work. Cut off the old connector from the bad oxygen sensor, strip the wires and use butt connectors to attach it to the new oxygen sensor. Use heat sensitive shrink tape to seal the connections. Follow manufacturer's instructions to know which wires to tie together. 5. Reverse the steps used in removing the oxygen sensor and install the new part. Screw it in place clockwise and snug it down with the socket or open-end wrench. Do not over tighten the sensor as you might strip the threads. 6. Plug the electrical connections back in. 7. Turn on the ignition key, but do not start your vehicle. Use the diagnostic scanner/reader to clear the code from the vehicle's computer. 8. Start the car. You should notice an immediate improvement.

                                  With reference to your inquiry on the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor with OE SmartLink™ - Part No. 15730, the Nissan Altima 2005 2.5L 4 cylinder only has "Bank 1" located next to the firewall. The V6 has "Bank 1" (rear cylinders by firewall) and "Bank 2" (front cylinders by radiator). However please note that it is not always the faulty O2 sensor which throws the DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code). I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                                  The Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor with OE SmartLink™ (Part No. 15730) fits your 1995 Mazda Millenia. The Oxygen sensor location is as follows: O2 sensor located in front manifold / exhaust pipe (Front), O2 sensor located in front manifold / exhaust pipe (Rear) O2 sensor located in rear manifold / exhaust pipe (Front) and O2 sensor located in rear manifold / exhaust pipe (Rear). For installing the new O2 Sensors you would need an O2 sensor wrench. It can either be the "socket" type, or the "claw" type but both type will work. Also the O2 sensor is easier to change on a warm engine.
