Thank you to those who posted some info regarding removing the O2 sensor. Now, I have another question. The service manual says start up and warm the car to operating temp and then remove the sensor. Can the sensor be removed from a cold engine? Which way is best? Should I spray the connections first with some type of lubricant such as Blaster, et. If there are any other tricks please let me know.

Fire, Liquid Wrench and impact gun are my choices for unseizing stuck parts. Instead of warming the engine up, you can apply localized heat from a torch. Liquid Wrench works better than WD-40, and it's also non-flammable with is really nice when you're simultaniously using a torch.

I sprayed a little Liquid Wrench on the sensor and then used used a Long Box end wrench to get it out. Did not have anywhere near the nightmare I expected. :twisted:

i didn't need heat at all when i changed mine - lots of liquid wrench worked, first try.

also, i broke the end off the old sensor with a hammer so i could use a regular depth socket.

Vise grips and my mini channel locks are my o2 sensor tools. :)
