Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

It's fixed!:D

Jeep dealer just replaced the one bad O2 sensor. Cost was exactly as they quoted, $85 for sensor and 1hr labor at $95. They must have special tools because I could see no evidence...

Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

Well, Firestone looked at it and said "No way". They don't want to attempt dropping the exhaust for fear of breaking bolts or other things.

I called my Jeep dealer back to get another quote for...

Re: What is easist way to access O2 sensor connectors?

Keep in mind you have the 3.7L V6. My truck has the 5.7L Hemi stuffed into it. Totally different animal with regards to accessing the O2 sensors.

Re: What is easiest way to access O2 sensor connectors?

Well, I gave it a shot, but was defeated terribly! You just cannot get access to unplug the connectors or wrench on the O2's to remove them on a WK with 5.7 Hemi. The upstream were impossible. So...

Re: Question about replacing Eng Coolant Temp Sensor

Re: Question about replacing Eng Coolant Temp Sensor

My temp gauge was reading normal too. Then I got this code yesterday. I figured for $18, it was the cheapest option to start with, so why not? Next step would be a new thermostat.
