What is wrong with the O2 Sensor?
How was it tested?
Why are you mentioning the EGR, and what do you mean by what kind. It either fits your vehicle or it doesn't.
What are the vehicles problems,before you throw parts at it?

    my check engine came on so i had a diagnostic test ran on it. came back as a bad 02 sensor. i replace it but car seems still hesitant when i go to accelrate like its not getn gas. should i get a fuel injection cleaning like they say to when you replace it or get it be something else. its a 96 saturn sl series dual cam 16 valve.

    When you get an OBD2 Code,as you did for the O2 Sensor,It DOES NOT say it is bad or needs to be replaced.
    It indicated the sensor went out of range.
    Doing it your way ,will get expensive. Education is the key
    A simple vacuum leak,could cause an O2 Code
    Nothing gets replaced until you know how to test things first.
    I do not know who recommended injector cleaning ,but I would say that is a waste of money.
    A clean air filter,fairly new spark plugs, a good egr valve,no vacuum leaks,Clean thottle plate and Maf Sensor,check TPS Voltage,ignition system working correctly,are all the basics to get you back on track

Crank sensor on 96 saturn sl2


I believe the Saturn has a cam timing sensor, not a crank sensor. It is located right below the head, accessable from underneath the car. It controls your injectors etc.

1994 saturn sl 2 oxygen sensor light came on replaced it. now the code is saying the upstream oxygen sensor input volage above normal operating range???? and theres a bad odor coming from car???


It could be the oxygen sensors but when you said there is a bad odor I would bet that you have a bad EGR valve. It will send a code for the oxygen sensor if there is problems with the EGR valve. A lot of the time the smell is like rotten eggs when you have a bad EGR.

94 Saturn Twin Cam Valve Adjustment


Valve slash and clearance adjustments should only be performed by certified mechanics and is not a job for the garage or novice hands on type.
If you still decide to proceed, I suggest you get your hands on a maintenance manual which will list the procedure step by step, including proper torque values.
