okay so i bought a 02 sensor and without double checking myself before i bought it,the sensor is for 05-09 2.0L, after comparing the only difference that i can tell is that the connector has a different pattern, 4 pins and colors are the same. if i just swap connectors, is the sensor compatible?
As I stated in another thread, this one needs to be replaced with a oem replacement. I've replaced this one before with one from a parts store that didn't clear the cel but once replaced with oem everything was fine.
the problem was i bought it on ebay so i figured i go ahead and try to use it. i cut and rewired the sensor(crimped and heat shrink) with the old sensor connector, its working alright so far. and it is the front a/f sensor, egt sensor is just downstream right befor the turbo. thanks for the advice guys
Glad to hear its working, You might want to wrap that heat shrink with a thermal protectant. Most of my soldiering heatshrink is only good up until about 150 celcuis. Most of the time under hood temps are well below 150 but on hot days on the 405 freeway ive seen temps up to 220 at the intake end. It might be worth wrapping in some of that foil tape just to be safe.
