02 sensors

This is a discussion on 02 sensors within the General Help forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; I would clean them and put them back in. If they're covered in crap then they're probably not reading all ...

    I would clean them and put them back in. If they're covered in crap then they're probably not reading all that well. If it happens again, then I would get it tuned. Sounds almost like when a MAF gets oil on it from an over oiled K&N filter. The car will run like ass and all it takes is a nice $6 MAF cleaning (I know some people that pay for a new MAF).

    Like he said, most tuners say every 40,000 but I tend to stretch that a little bit.

    You could try cleaning them as suggested, you won't be out anything but your time. I haven't had any luck with this method though it's worth a try.

    I'm just offering the most cost effective method since he doesn't want to spend another $150 on new sensors.

    More than likely. Thats always been the case for me.

    Better off replacing anyway in my opinion,,,,should be trouble free for another 50,000 miles,,,,and with long tube headers older 02 sensors are more likely to throw slow switching codes...

    Just one of the joys of owning all this new technoligy
