RE: V8 O2 Sensor
Thanks for the info. Replacing the Oxygen sensor seems pretty simple. =
What special tools do I need to replace it.
Don't know what size it is, but I didn't have the correct metric
wrench size. :-(
I called Carlsen Audi (CA) =
and they said that my cost on the O2 Sensor was $130. That's $30 cheaper =
than my local Audi dealer. I am not mechanically inclined but if I can =
save myself some money, I don;t mind replacing it myself. The car is =
pretty low to the ground. How did you manage to get underneath?
With a wonderfull present my wife gave me for christmas :-)
I have a big hydraulic jack, like the ones you see in
mechanic's shop. I lifted the car up and put the front on
Jack Stands. Slid under the car from the front on my back,
and wallah... right were the 2 headers meet behind the engine
is the O/2 sensor. The wires face the rear of the car.
Could you give me a few more directions on how to replace the sensor ?
I unfortunately put a 2 wire sensor in trying to save money,
what a mistake.... it surges like crazy for the first ten minutes
until it's really warmed up. I know have the 3 wire sensor coming
from Strano's on order. When the new sensor comes in I'll have to
unplug the 2 connectors up under the drivers side of the engine block.
If I get my sensor before you I'll post how I did it.... It looks
kind of tight up there, but we'll see.....
I would really appreciate it. BTW the car had been added to the page the day =
you sent me the photo. You may have to refresh your browser. Also, your =
car does look like new and also love the color (unique among V8's),
P.S.: Should I question the service guy regarding my V8 having one =
oxygen sensors versus two...like he told me ??
