Hey guys,

Just finishing my Rinehart exhaust installation. I got a little bit of anti seize on one of the O2 sensor tips. In general I wanted to clean the O2 sensors somehow, but the guy at the auto parts store said there really isn't anything to clean them.

What do you guys suggest I do? Is it a big deal if some anti seize is on the sensor tip?

Btw these are the wide band sensors that came with the Thunder Max.

Thx,

anti sieze or oil on an 02 sensor can cause it to fail.. in theory you are supposed to replace them if they become fouled.. but i have heard that cleaning them with a contact cleaner that leaves no residue is effective..

^ The MAF sensor cleaner from CRC doesn't leave any residue...

Also, isn't the actual sensor inside the metal casing at the tip? I don't think the actual sensor has the anti seize on it, just the metal casing on the tip...shouldn't matter right?

wipe it off, CRC clean it, reinstall, and ride on
