Downstream only sensor for Toyota Avalon

"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.

                Comments about Bosch Premium Oxygen Sensor with OE SmartLink™:

                Used this to replace the OE sensor on a 2006 Jetta that was stuck in the catalytic converter I had just replaced. It worked perfectly. I was worried about it's universal nature, and figuring out the wiring. However, that was not a problem. Also, between replacing both the catalytic converter and this sensor, the computer is no longer throwing any codes.

                  Product is exactly as described and works. Attaching the wiring connector from my old sensor was easy, but it did take about 30 minutes to get it all squared away.

                  The day after installing, my OBD threw a code for the sensor, but I cleared it and it's been fine ever since. Passed inspection no problem and fuel efficiency is as expected.

                  The instructions that came with this sensor are extremely good. There was plenty of wire with quality materials. The Quick Link system involves extra work and isn't very easy to work with in a tight space. I would have rather just spliced the wires and put heat shrink over them - less connections. I'm not sure I trust the Quick Link connection.

                      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.

                      A:

                      I'm happy to help, Stevie! The installation difficulty of an oxygen sensor will vary from one vehicle to another. A truck is usually pretty easy because there is a lot of room to work with. A car that that is compact may be more difficult. I would suggest looking at a repair manual for your vehicle to see how involved the procedure is. From my own experience I had difficulty getting the part removed from both the wiring harness and the exhaust pipe. You'll most likely want the oxygen sensor wrench (Part No. AC679) to assist in making the job easier as well as liberal amounts of WD-40 Specialist Rust Penetrant (Part No 300004). For the electrical connection, you'll need a lot of patience - mine would move but I couldn't tell if it was slipping back into the locked position, the plastic is very tough. However, this part being universal you will not need to disconnect the wiring harness, but you will need to splice wires from the new sensor to the old pigtail or purchase a new pigtail as well.
