    O2 sensors making a jingling sound

    The O2 sensors right after each cat on my 2002 TA are making a jingling sound. It doesn't matter if the car is hot or cold. I took it to the dealership for them to check it out, they got some new O2 sensors to put on it, but they did the same thing. Looking at the sensors, there is a ring on the connector end that does not tighten on to the sensor. It's a very dumb design.

    So, has anybody else had this problem? Is there a non-AC Delco part that I can replace them with that is a better design?

    The dealer installed new rear 02s and it didn't fix the problem? Bring it back. One of them "jingling" is rare, both at the same time is even more rare, assuming they were installed correctly.

    Yeah, if I had time to keep going down there I would. But, I fixed myself. If anybody has the same problem, the correct NAPA Item # is BSH 13444. The sensor that DougCW referenced above are universal sensors and are intended to be hard wired. 13444 is the OEM replacement that plugs right in.
