What oxy sensor did you buy?

That one looks extremely similar to my wideband oxy sensor. The EEC isn't going to know what to do with a wideband.

I was kinda think that too. If you change from the factory one the ECU isnt rigged for different ones is it?

EEC wont take a wideband as

a) it's output is completely different and
b) a wideband needs a seperate controller.

Not an LSU4 is it frank? It does look like a WB as they're a little complex than the (zirconia?) element of a NB..

:) Mine looked just the same, after almost 180000 ks a couple of weeks ago... Much better now though after the swap to a new NTK, seems to have more up and go off the line now.

I bought an NTK today, $71.50 and its exactly the same as the ford jobbie I pulled out. Will see if they make much of a difference, doing 700kms this w.end :D

Yep, Ford Dealer here quoted $140, Trade! :shock: Repco wanted $120 and Bursons wanted only $80 for the same NTK sensor! :? I know where I went...
