Hey all, due to a high fuel and gas consumption, a few people have mentioned replace the o2 sensor. How easy is this to do and where is the little bugger located???

Easy to replace, its located on the exhaust manifold. Just unplug the wiring harness, unscrew the sensor and replace. New sensors cost $60-80 normally

Some extractors place the o2 sensor just before the cat.. so if you have pacemakers for example (on a 6 anyway), they will be just before the cat.

And definately do it while cold. Although possible on a hot engine.. you'll regret it lol.

Cheers
