    O2 sensor removal

    I am attempting to remove the O2 sensor (rear), with the sensor socket (long) have it undone part way and now it is become stubborn. I know I read here some way to "oil" the threads, but am not able to find it. I am wondering if someone is able to help with this info?

    Yes I did Tsani. But won't go back too much. Kind of no turn situation now. Is using penetrating oil going to help?

    Alright update... used some penetrating oil and it is lose now. I hope using this oil won't screw up the new sensor. I am going to wipe the bung and threat clean before running it the new sensor.

    Be sure there is me rust where the sealing gasket seats. If you can run a tap through the threads do that and be sure to use some anti sneeze on the threads of the sensor or it may not come back out next time.

    I have the rear senor off and will go in and clean it out. Good idea Joel.

    Hey thank you guys.. it work out well got both out. Looking at the threats on the sensors, they appear to be worn down. But since I am not using these it doesn't matter now.
