Replacing O2 sensors

Recommended Posts

When searching for details of O2 sensors (GS300 ) most appear to come wth the plugs, use of which requires removal of items from the passenger compartment.

I have, however seen some lambda sensors which come not with plugs, but with bare end wire and four plastic coated cable joiners implying that they should be fitted by joining cable.

So would anyone care to comment on why the cable joining method should not be used on the O2 sensors on the Lexus, as this does have a major impact on the time to fit, and therefore the labour costs of fitting, replacements.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
