    Default 405 Mi16 Oxy sensor grief

    It's a 1.9. Didn't bother ringing a dealer, but even non-genuine (Euro Auto Imports in Box Hill ) quoted $200 for an oxy-sensor. There must be a cheaper solution guys. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    I bought one from Sprint Auto. Cost $84. Had a different plug on the end, but 10 minutes with a pair of sidecutters and a soldering iron, with some heatshrink over the top, and the plug from the old one is in place.

    Fuel consumption dropped from about 24mpg around town to about 29mpg. Haven't tried the thing on the highway yet, but I'm going to melb in a couple of weeks, and I'm expecting about 40mpg.

    Cheapest solution IMHO would be EBay USA. If you know how many wires go to the 02 sensor (1, 3 4 ???) you can look for generic ones being auctioned and start bidding. When I was looking there were lots of ordinary sales & dealers offering them.
    Somewhere there is a cool 02 site which has pictures of every plug ever made & the differnt company part numbers and applications. So an MI 16 one maybe same on Volvo which is real cheap in USA. Top price in US on eBay for a Bosch to suit my car (& a Ferarri dammit! ) was USD $70; most were between $25 to 35.
    Cause the sensors are so small they easily fit into a USPS Global Prioriy Mail prepaid envelope which is only usd$5 to Aus.

    I will see what I can dig up.
    So many projects - so little time.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
