searched a bit but im not liking this new search feature.
i know its an 02 sensor in bank 1 or something.
i was hearing stuff about overheating but my car runs cool. i cleared it twice only for it to come back on the next start.

im always one to replace something soon as it breaks but how bad would it be to put this off a week till i get paid. i hear the sensor is close to $200.

ps. does anyone have an install guide or diy fix because i dont feel like driving an hour for a dealership to do it and charge me double for labor.

thanks in advance

No. That would imply everyone here would overlook all it's glaring flaws and all of the better competition while talking about how much they like it.

I got both the upstream and downstream sensors (AC Delco brand) for less than 200 bucks. Shoot ZSPOT and PM and see what kind of pricing he can give you. The upstream sensor isn't too bad to get at. I needed to rock the engine forward a bit to get the clearance I needed, but its pretty simple.

(I don't know if you have an LA1 or an L36, my experience is with the L36).

It's the big thing stuck in the rear manifold.

THANK YOU. i shot zspot a pm and hopefully he gets back to me.
do you think the sensor just went bad or should i look more into it. i love this car and would hate for it to go down

I wouldn't worry about it too much. O2 sensors fail from time to time. The only thing I'd check is the wiring to the sensor itself, maybe something chaffed or broke off there, but I doubt it.

BTW - My experience is typically having to cut the cord on the old O2 sensor to fit a deep well socket on it and sometimes a breaker bar (or ratchet with a pipe to extend it).
When installing the new one, you will need a special socket for it (usually it's deep well with an opening to allow the wire to dangle out).

I just changed the upstream one on my Monte (another W-Body car) without needing to rock the engine (just the sockets described, ratchets and the right extentions to get me to an area with a little clearance.

I changed the downstream one on our Impala and because of the u-bend and narrow tunnel it was in, removal was a PAIN (enough movement for 1-2 ratchet clicks).
