Question about 1998 Lexus ES 300
TO REPLACE OXYGEN YOU NEED A SLOTTED SOCKET AND A TUBE ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND. MOST OF THE TIME NEW OXYGEN SENSOR ALREADY HAS ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND USED ON THE THREADS.TO REPLACE OXYGEN SENSOR FIRST CRANK VECHICLE FOR A FEW MINUTES SO YOU CAN REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR MORE EASILY. ONCE YOU GET THE EXHAUST LITTLE WARM.YOU DISCONNECT OXYGEN SENSOR CONNECTOR TAKE SLOTTED SOCKET REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR APPLY ANTI SEIZE ON OXYGEN SENSOR THREADS THE SCREW IT IN PLACE..WEAR LONG SLEEVES COVERALLS, SAFETY GLASSES KEEP RUST PARTICLES GETTING INTO YOUR EYES. AND LEATHER GLOVES KEEP HANDS FROM CUTS AND EXHAUST BURNS. IF YOU REPLACING DOWN STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU HAVE TO RAISE VECHICLE SUPPORT ON JACKSTANDS. FOR UP STREAM OXYGEN SENSOR YOU CAN REPLACE WITHOUT RAISING THE VECHICLE.REASON I SAY CRANK ENGINE TO WARM UP EXHAUST SYSTEM BECAUSE METAL EXPANDS WHEN HOT THAT MAKES REMOVING OXYGEN SENSOR EASIER. IF YOU DONT CRANK VECHICLE THE COLD CAUSES METAL TO SHRINK MAKING HARDER TO REMOVE OXYGEN SENSOR.POSSIBLY DAMAGING SENSOR THREADS WHILE TRYING TO LOOSEN SENSOR FROM EXHAUST MANIFOLD OR PIPE. YOU CAN BUY SLOTTED SOCKET AND ANTI SEIZE COMPOUND AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORES.
