Can anyone tell me if there's a way to bypass the heater lines on the o2 sensor? I got a new one with only 1 wire instead of 3 and my car wont run well.
I'm running without a thermostat and so the car wont heat up enough to let the o2 sensor do its thing without the other 2 wires. any ideas?

What the? The coolant temp has nothing to do with oxygen sensor function. The exhaust gas will heat the sensor just fine. I used to run a cheapo replacement sensor on my last car and it worked fine.

um

ok try this

1) put a god damn thermostat in your car
2) go buy a 40 dollar mustang LX sensor (like a 91-94) its a 3 wire one and will work fine but you will need to get a threaded bung on the dp or an adaptor from the bolt to threaded bung.
3) stop being cheap...it will only lead to your car being broken and you blaming it on the car.

It trips me out that people will go out and spend a lot of money for mods and then they want to cheap out on a o2 sensor. Think.

I'm ok with using any other o2 sensor. the only problem is the flange that toyota uses. i cant find it

Iirc, the o2 sensor is threaded into the flange. You should be able to clamp the flange in a vise, screw the o2 sensor out, and screw a new one in.

The STOCK FACTORY TOYOTA one does NOT come apart like the after market ones do, just go buy a universal bosch flanged 3 wire sensor... aight peace :chicken:

I nailed mine with a torch till the carbon burnt off, works again untill I can get a good one...

ok. i found the perfect replacement.

the factory replacement is $160 at AutoZone
the same thing without the end connector is $55

Part # 234-3050 Denso o2 Sensor.

Just splice the cables into the old connector. Same thing, save $100.

To the guy who said "just go and buy the right one" SPOOLIN30 and the guy who said "stop being cheap..." IdealSupra: I am now $100 richer than you. Thanks for those 2 comments, they really helped.
