I paid $30 for overnight shipping included in that $95 that I said. I got a great deal, but I will remember to ask you first next time I need parts!Please check with me on parts next time, I could have sold you both sensors for $67.52 for the pair and no more than $10.00 for UPS ground. Assuming you're in the continental U.S.
And yes, as we discussed the only way to get those sensors warrantied would have been to have it at a dealership but even then they wouldn't have been removing them unless the part had actually failed and it could be a sticky issue trying to explain why you were removing them yourself.
Yeah that is what I figured. I will be using anti-seize, then installing it finger tight before using a torque wrench I am not about to buy 2 more when I go BT. I am not hopeful Ford will warranty their labor.Lol at the meme but no, I don't think Ford would ever warranty the removal of a previously good part.
If you had an O2 sensor problem that they diagnosed and then had a problem removing is one thing but you removing it for upgrading the DP is completely different.
And fwiw, I had the same issue on mine and had to replace the front as well. Out-of-pocket cost on my end as well. *Use anti-seize!!!*
The bungs on the original pipe are damaged and will need to be replaced if I ever put it back on. I have never had o2 sensors on the 20+ year old Hondas I used to work on with 130k+ miles come out this way.These probably weren't cross threaded from the factory. Generally, these come out like that due to the heat cycling. At the dealer, I would always heat the bung with a torch or inductive heater until red hot and sometimes even then (<10%), they would strip the threads on the way out. You've got to be sure to run a tap through the bung to clear out any rough spots before reinstalling in the oem pipe.
