Removal & Installation
Discard any Heated Oxygen (HO2S) Sensor which has been dropped from a height of more than 20 inches (0.5mm) onto a hard surface such as a concrete floor.
Before installing a new HO2S, clean the exhaust system threads using an oxygen sensor thread cleaner tool, J-43897-18 or J-43897-12, and apply anti-seize lubricant.
Do not over-tighten the HO2S. Doing so may cause damage to the HO2S, resulting in the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) to be illumined.
