O2 sensor problem
 
I was having a sputtering problem, and figured out it was my upstream O2 sensor by disconnecting the sensor, which made the sputtering go away. I just replaced the sensor, and I'm still getting a check engine light, which came on after I disconnected the sensor. Any suggestions?

What brand of o2 sensor did you use?? Hopefully its not Bosch.

Disconnect the battery to clear the code.

It is a Bosch, I thought they were a good brand. Thanks jkp, the CEL is gone.

Expect problems bud. If I were you, I'd return them if you can and get NGK's which are stock for jeep tj's.

For some reason, the Bosch O2s do not work well in Jeeps. I've used them in other vehicles with no problems, but there are many reports of CELs when used in Jeeps.

Shi+e! Think I can return it after installing it and running the engine?
