Changing an Oxygen Sensor

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man

Hi Bob,
I have a 1995 Chrysler Plymouth Neon and my oxygen sensor needs changing. Can you advice me how to do this. I would like to do it myself, but I don't know where to start. Also, where exactly would I locate the sensor in the car?

The oxygen sensor is located in the exhaust pipe. On different cars, it is in different locations. However, the sensor looks like a fat marker sticking out of the exhaust pipe with wires on the end. Most cars need a 7/8" wrench to remove this part. Basically, once you find it, disconnect the wires at the connector usually located nearby, then using the 7/8" wrench, unscrew the sensor.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
