I cant get the old ones out 350,000 kms they have been in there
I have the NGK direct fit to replace them with

I dropped it off at a muffler shop this am and they could NOT remove them

they said they needed to heat them up (cant see how there gonna torch them down there???) but if they heat its 50/50 that the threads will tear meaning they would have to remove manifolds $400+ if that happens

is this true??

Yeah, whoever does it will have to heat them up. But with a blowtorch and breaker bar you should be able to get them out. Looks like the muffler shop is just trying to make more money off you or just doesn't want to take the risk.

Ok the shop got the o2's out today they had to heat the living crap out of them and really really give it on a big 3 ft extension but they came out with little thread dammage they retapped the manifold and all is well

cost me $130.00 canadian tax in id never have gotten them off at home esp without torches

so at 355,000km my legand has its 1st 02 sensor change lets hope my 11 mpg improves......
