Worked great, need smaller fingers.

The thing was easy to use and the wiring guide made it easy to hook up. I just needed smaller fingers to put the wires together. The hardest part was removing the O2 sensor...Read complete review

Downstream only sensor for Toyota Avalon

Careful when ordering a O2 sensor for a Toyota Avalon.

The Avalon uses 2 types of sensors:

"Upstream" for before the cat. converterRead complete review

Careful when ordering a O2 sensor for a Toyota Avalon.

The Avalon uses 2 types of sensors:

"Upstream" for before the cat. converter
"Downstream" for after the cat. converter

This web site makes no distinction whether this sensor would be used for upstream of downstream, I've found that other sites do; this sensor is DOWNSTREAM ONLY.

On my vehicle I had 2 upstream (pre cat.) sensors under the hood; one attached to each of the exhaust manifolds. There was another sensor in the exhaust pipe just after the cat. converter (downstream).

I was replacing one of the upstream sensors under the hood to fix a p0135 error code in my vehicle. When visiting this web page, I bought this Bosch universal because of the price. After installing it I found that the error did not go away. After some further research, I found that the upstream sensors that are before the cat. converter are actually referred to as "air/fuel" sensors, while only the downstream sensor after the cat. is still referred to as the "oxygen" sensor. These sensors are different, and do send different signals back to the ECU.

Basically, for the upstream sensor, make sure you find something that is a direct match for Toyota's part 8946741030, and this Bosch IS NOT IT. The more expensive ones are, such as the Denso for $169.

                    Installed the Bosh "Smart Link" in my brother's Toyota Rav 4, and the sensor did not work. I ended up wiring it directly and the sensor still didn't work! He brought it back to Advance Auto Parts. They took it back (no questions) and recommended to him the Denso O2 sensor which worked. Pay the extra money and buy the better O2 sensor.

The heater part of plug is purple and white they go to the white wires on the bosch sensor. After I figured that out it was easy. I think a lot people who have problems with this senser have the wiring wrong

                            I drive an '05 Rav4 and I got a code P0420. I bought this O2 sensor. It was a little overwhelming with all of the wire stripping and coupling, but it solved my problem. No more check engine light. I would definitely recommend this as a great money saver and do it yourself project.

                                Glad to assist, Rich! This is a downstream oxygen sensor for your vehicle. Your car has two oxygen sensors. You will need the Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor Part No. 17070 for upstream.

                              Will this sensor work as both the upstream and the downstream on my 2000 volvo s70? Also, how many will I need? 2 or 4? Thanks.

                                I'm happy to help, QMB! This Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor with OE SmartLink does fit both upstream and downstream in a 2003 Volkswagen Passat 2.8L V6. In the 2003 Volkswagen Passat 1.8L Turbo it is only the downstream oxygen sensor. You can locate this information in under the Product Application heading under the Product Description. Since this oxygen sensor is universal you'll need to splice the wires into the existing wires on the vehicle. Some items you may need if you're replacing an oxygen sensor are: a repair manual - Haynes Part No. 96023, an offset oxygen sensor wrench - Autocraft Part No. AC679, WD-40 Specialist Rust Penetrant - Part No. Part No 300004 and patience.
