This o2 sensor in an exact match for the 2 front oxygen sensors in my 2005 ford Taurus "vin U". I used PB Blaster to get them loose, i sprayed them down the night before and again about 1 hour before i started the work. It was a couple of bucks for PB blaster at Advance, you also need a 7/8 wrench and an actual oxygen sensor socket, sockets are a must and you also get them @ the store. Much better than hot exhaust parts to burn yourself on.

Comments about NTK Oxygen Sensor:

Replacing the o2 sensors in my 95 mustang made a giant difference. These are made by NTK, which is who makes them for motorcraft for this application anyways. Fuel mileage went from 9 - 10mpg to 15 just from changing these. Also, my car seems much smoother and crisp in the mid range rpms under load. In my circumstance, just changing the o2's literally will save more than they cost in a relatively short time frame. It might sound crazy, but changing the o2's in my automatic mustang also made some improvements in shift quality - not sure what science is behind that, but it really did. If your vehicle has the older, much less sophisticated obd 1 computer system and its been more than 50k since you changed your o2 sensors, than it will most likely benefit your car.

      Bought this sensor at the suggestion of some of the helpful, but not the best trained Advance Auto Parts sales people when I supplied the error codes in my PCM. Well, it ain't the dang O2 sensor! Likely going to be that cheap intake manifold that's only last about 3 years now!

      Comments about NTK Oxygen Sensor:

      These NGK Oxygen Sensors are of very high quality and are original equipment replacements which means they will have identical electronic output as the ones being replaced. This is very important as many onboard computers are very sensitive to minor variances in electronic signals. Often using other than direct replacements and using original manufacturer products will cause the ECM(OBD2) to display faulty error codes that will light up the Check Engine or Service Soon lights in the dash.

                A:

                Hi Tom, glad to help you! The NTK Oxygen Sensor (Part No. 22060) is an exact upstream oxygen sensor for your 2003 Ford Taurus 3.0L. The part number 22500 is an downstream oxygen sensor for your vehicle.

                Good question, Penny! Since you didn't mention the specific vehicle, it's hard to tell for sure. To give you the correct information I would need the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle. Generally, the upstream is before the catalytic converter, downstream is after the catalytic converter. The upstream sensor tells how the engine runs whereas the downstream sensor only tells if the catalytic converter is going bad. On some cars both sensors are the same part number, or the only difference is the length of wiring.

                Hi Chuck, happy to help you! The Bank 1 Sensor 1 oxygen sensor (upstream/precat) should be located before the catalytic converter on the right side. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts. Haynes Ford Mustang '94-'04 Repair Manual (Part No. 36051).

                Hi Bill, I'm glad to assist you. The P2119 code is detected when electric throttle control actuator does not function properly due to the return spring malfunction or Engine Control Module (ECM) detect the throttle valve is stuck open. The faulty electric throttle control actuator, throttle plate sticking due to carbon build-up, electric throttle control actuator harness is open or shorted, electric throttle control actuator poor electrical circuit connection and faulty Engine Control Module may cause this problem. 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.

              I have a 2001 Mustang GT with the cats deleted. From what I see is that it doesn't have MIL Eliminators, but it doesn't throw the check engine light either. I know that the downstream oxygen sensor only read the performance of that cats. My question is, is it necessary to replace the downstream oxygen sensors if there is no cats? If I just replace the two upstream will it effect the performance of them if I don't also replace the two downstream?

                It doesn't matter cause when I unplugged both downstream oxygen sensors and started the car it didn't throw a code. Seems like the car ran better with them unplugged.

                A:

                Hello Weazle! It may be possible the upstream sensors can be affected when the downstream sensors finally throw a code. The car was not meant to run without cats so you may eventually throw a code for those catalytic converters.
