Just a few things,
*How much do they cost?.Both GMH and aftermarket?.
*Are there good and bad quality one?.
*Are they both the same?.(L and R wiring plug etc)
*Are any special tools needed to fit them?.
*Are they hard to fit?.
*Are there any questions I've missed?.
*Are there good and bad quality one?. Not really
*Are they both the same?.(L and R wiring plug etc) Yes
*Are any special tools needed to fit them?. No, just a 22mm spanner. (I think)
*Are they hard to fit?. No, unplug it, undo it, fit new one.
*Are there any questions I've missed?. Don't bother trying to clean them, the sensor is inside the metal case. You can't clean them.
location of both O2 sensors may vary depending on exhaust being standard or aftermarket.
I think thats about it
EDIT: NAAF, bet me too it!!
Narrow band is what is most common. Wide band is more for specialist applications. 90% of cars use narrow band.
but if there cloged up with gunk can they just lightly cleaned with a soft brush? i know you wont be able to get to teh sesor its self....also i have cleaned the one on my vn before buy useing compressed air.....a heap of **** came out and now it runs alot better
Ok heres another question that I think may have been answered before but it seems relevant here. Im getting some pacemakers for my 6 and was wanting to know if the 02 sensors are in the same rough location on the pace's and if new gmh ones would fit the same or would I need some aftermarket types? Because I am going to get new 02 sensors regardless when the system gets put in. Cheers.
Yes, they are in the same place, roughly. And yes, whether you get genuine or aftermarket, they will still fit.
Is Delphi genuine holden brand?
anyone got a pic of were its located
Once you get under the car you will clearly see them, theyld be sticking out the manifold.
The Bolt is 22mm and before undoing spray a bit of rust off and make sure you get the spanner on sqaure so you dont round it.
Dam those prices are cheap i just paid 90bucks for a GM one for my VT and that was cost, they reatiled at $180
yeah cause i think one of them is full of crap, and needs to be cleaned out
AC Delco are the genuine Holden ones. Usually the aftermarket ones you have to wire and solder in, the Delco ones you just unplug the old one, and plug in the new one.
You pay a few bucks extra for the genuine ones (maybe like $20), but it's alot easier.

No. New one. Don't clean the old one. They really cost **** all for how long they last.

Genuine are $88.50 from Holden, I got Delphi ones off ebay for 58 each, so saves $30.50 each, total of saving of $61 bux. So far Delphi is working fine.
wow its amazing how much holden will try to f#ck you up the arse with money
About 6 months ago I bought some genuine O2's from holden and the ones they gave me were Vs ones exactly like they used 10 years ago (4 generations old in O2 sensors). and they cost me about $60 ea trade but my problem which wasn't the O2's F*#@ed them up so I bought another 2 from my local store and got Nippon Denso's which were exactly like my VZ factory ones, the current style and they worked perfect straight away. and only cost $45 each.
So be careful with Holden because you could just be getting old shelf stock as the early ones are no longer available anywhere else.
i found oxygen sensor, wat a pain in the arse thing, and holden wat to charge me 108 dollars for one, anyone know where to get cheaper ones in blacktown location

o2 sensors operate strictly on heat yeah? they are a thermometer technically, I would take a punt and say greater heat increases circuit resistance?
and this is why cleaning them really wont do allot and why the sensor itself is actually incased within metal?
How do some silicones stuff them up though?
