'02 2.7 Oxygen sensors

Recommended Posts

I think I have at least 1 sensor on its way out. last summer when I was having my retrofit OBD enabled the local specialist noticed one was lazy on his computer.

I found a very cheap New Bosch sensor on Ebay described as suitable for my car, but looking online there seems to be different connectors. My car is in storage so its difficult to check before the spring.

this is the exact sensor I have:

Does anyone recognise it to be OK?

Don't expect it to come out without a big fight and probably stripping the threads. In which case you will need one of these.

Handy link to drop into my browser favourites should a sensor ever need replacing.  Thanks.

Thanks. The sensor you have linked to clearly has a different plug. I wonder why there is a discrepancy? 
I guess I’ll have to wait until I can see on my car. 

btw the error code I’ve had twice is P0134

O2 sensor no activity detected  bank 1 sensor 1

which one is that? Drivers sore or passenger?

 Thanks

P0134

 Oxygen Sensor Ahead of Catalytic Converter (Cylinders 1 - 3) - Interruption of Signal

Meaning a plug undone, the wire pulled away from the sensor or bad sensor.  Part number of the Bosch - 15182 Oxygen Sensor - OE Type Before Catalyst

Bank 1 is drivers side in the UK (right hand side when sitting in the car). I know this as I had lifters replaced recently on bank 2 (noisy and near side).

Hi @Danncus I have a '04 2.7 and recently replaced an 02 sensor and the plug was the same as the one that topradio has linked to.

The old one was indeed a pig to remove which required a trial and error combination of a blowtorch, a heat gun, mucho swearing coupled with gentleness to not wreck the threads! Good luck

Thanks. Once the warmer weather is with us I’ll attempt it.

If you decide to not do it yourself, it isn't like you need a Porsche-priced mechanic. Any muffler/exhaust shop with a lift should swap one for you in about 20 minutes including cool down time.

Yes. I hope to do it on the drive. 

If anyone has a plug off an old sensor, I’d like to see if a can swap the ends

Just swap over the one from your old sensor.  On my 986 I had to cut the body of the sensors down so I could get a standard socket on the 'nut' part, I heated the pipe and cooled the sensor with freezer spray and when the old one came out there was absolutely no evidence of the threads so I had to recut them with the tool above.
