The 234-3090 is the wrong sensor

The 234-4700 is the wrong sensor
& for california emissions

Get the correct sensors with the connector
on them (OEM Type) you have many to choose
from, even at auto zone

You got universal cut & splice,that is silly

Bad oxygen censor

You can buy a replacement sensor from your local auto parts store. Also, you can buy universal oxygen sensors on-line and wire them to the connector from your old sensor. It can be a little difficult removing the old sensor from the exhaust pipe, so be careful. Make sure you get a good bite on the wrench flats.
