oxygen sensor PITA! and tune up question
Any one strip the threads on the O2 sensor when they were changing them?

I tryed so hard not to f up the threads and the dam thing was just not having it... it took almost 30 min just to get one out and now I cant get the new one in and I cant find the right size tap to fix it either....I had to special order it from grainger.....on the bright side I got my new air filter, spark plugs, plug wires on

does anyone suggest changing the fuel filter, PCV filter, or any thing els to include in the tune up? im almost hitting 70,000 miles

Did you change the cap and rotor? Also the fuel filter/Pump assembly is all one unit in the tank. "Supposedly" it never needs cleaned or changed. However next time I take my tank down I'll probably see what's up with it anyway.

That tap you should be able to get at any NAPA or good parts house it's usally the same as a sprk plug 14mmx1.5 pitch. so a spark plug cahser should work. and put some neverseize on the new one. It will help for nex time.

I would run some seafoam threw the vac line. It will clean out the carbon and help free up the rings if they have alot of carbon around them.:D
