You guys are buying the 79.xx O2 sensor with no issues from global automotive? They have a bunch for sale on ebay. I'm wondering if I should buy one?
Is it an NTK unit? I'll pull the trigger today if you guys tell me this works for our VXs... I found a genuine L1H1 sensor for 139.00 so that's my backup plan.
Wow, I just received my o2 sensor a couple days ago, but because the car passed emissions, I figured my o2 sensor was fine, but maybe I will replace it if you have such good result!! Did you install it yourself or someone do it fer ya? If so, how much did it cost to have it installed?
hey, did you buy one of those $79 sensors too? Did you put it in? I want to order mine today.... let me know your experience.....
Just received and install the new O2 sensor! It is exactly the same as my OEM of 260 000km!
The difference is incredible! No more hesitation, smooth idle. I have to press less on the gas pedal to cruise at same speed than before; can even run at 800rpm in 5th gear and there is no vibration (before the dash wanted to fall down because of excessive vibration.) No more bog down when hit the pedal to accelerate!
Feel like I will do over the 60 mpg!
Alain, now that it has been some time since you installed the o2 sensor, is everything you said here still true?
Also, what kind of mileage are you getting at normal speeds? (not 80mph!)
