installing new oxygen sensor.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

As I am installing a net cat, exhaust tube and oxygen sensor, I would like to ask, if the glass bead/liquid graphite is still used today, on the thread of a new or reinstalled oxygen sensor?

 

Kind regards,

Jacques.

yes, you do need an O2 safe anti-seize on the threads of the sensor.  The O2 sensors usually ship with the anti-seize. They usually do use glass beads.

Thanks Travis, I'll ask around here, if I can but it locally.

 

Kind regards,

Jacques.

Okay, been searching for that glass stuff, but to no avail.

Meanwhile I have bought a tube of Wera thread compound, resistant up to 1400 degrees celsius.

 

So, my question is this: will this be oaky or can't it seal peopperly?

 

 

Kind regards,

Jacques.

Usually the O2 sensors have some anti-seize...  Use only O2 sensor safe compounds.  The glass bead kind are the best.  I don't know the Wera brand.

 

I use the BOsch 13030 sensor, but I have read an opinion that the Denso sensor is faster responding...?  I may try that one soon.

 

Denso 234-4062 Oxygen Sensor (might work)
