o2 sensor

well since im getting my clutch/timing belt/valve adjustment done this weekend i decided i might as well do fuel filter/o2 sensor as well. The guy said we have 2 o2 sensors in our cars? Im only getting one so what one would you recommend replacing first? Im pretty sure theres one before the cat but i dunno where the other one is.

theres one before the cat and one right after the cat. IMO if ur gonna do one why not just do the other one in the same time instead of replacing one then the other go out on u and got to get under the car again 2 replace other one IMO.. :)

The post-cat O2 sensors in cars often last the life of the car and has zero effect on ful trim. Don't waste your money until it actually sets the CEL. Only the pre-cat HO2S has any effect on fuel trim. My rule of thumb is every 75k miles minimum assuming that the car is properly maintained. If it's been burning oil, had a stuck open injector, or anything similar, replace it ASAP after fixing the other problem.

nevermind, the denso is the OEM correct? also whats the difference between universal and identical? my mechanic says the universals dont work 50% of the time.


EDIT: Ok so i did alittle research and found that the universal o2 sensors will go on any car but you have to splice and soder wires together where as the OE identical fit exactly. Its pretty self explanitory but the identical sensor was about $10 cheaper so i had to ask out of curiousity. I figure the universal is more because it can be used on anything. Anyways, for anyone else curious, theres the info.

just an updated note on sparkplugs.com:

so far their sucking, i paid extra for the 2nd day air on monday and it took a full 7 days to get here and now they wont answer my emails, and will not take my return. Also when i tried calling a message came on saying this number is blocked but you will recieve a text message in a min with further info. Got the text and it read:

Reply Y now to get the info on the # you are trying to reach. Locator service $9.99 +std msg fees.

so i texted y back and got another toll free # which is coming up with a busy tone.

Anyone know how to battle this? or what i should do to get my money back?

I have never had an issue with them, all my parts arrive on time and I never had to return anything, so I couldn't help with that, sorry.
