Re: Need an oxygen sensor, cheapest place?


Which one would you suggest I buy .... the 49 dollar one or the 90
dollar one ? are they both made by the same manufacture? Will one
last twice as long as the other? why the big difference in price? I
appreciate your candor, but it's not an answer to my question, is it?

Re: Need an oxygen sensor, cheapest place?

you know, I'm going to hit you with even more candor here

I've been reading the truck groups for close to 10 years

every damned day, it's someone else posting about the price of parts and
'where can I get it cheaper?'

if folks tally'd up the time spent looking for it 'cheaper' vs just paying
for the part, they'd be money ahead

that being said, there is always a 'cheaper place' to buy the part

you pay your money and take your chances..............I'd buy it from NAPA,
CarQuest, or the dealer, unless it's very easy to get to and change

then I'd put the cheapest one on it

Wrecking yard... even cheaper at U Pull It.
There's only a few oxygen sensors out there, so any light duty Ford
truck or car of 1996 vintage or newer should have a four wire. My 96 is a 1
ton, so was exempt from many of the requirements at the time, so it has a
two wire sensor, IIRC.

Then of course there's ebay. BW universal, twenty bucks.
