5.CHECK HEATED OXYGEN SENSOR 2 HEATER

6.REPLACE HEATED OXYGEN SENSOR 2

Replace malfunctioning heated oxygen sensor 2.

CAUTION:

  •  Discard any heated oxygen sensor which has been dropped from a height of more than 0.5 m (19.7 in) onto a hard surface such as a concrete floor; use a new one.
  •  Before installing new oxygen sensor, clean exhaust system threads using Oxygen Sensor Thread Cleaner [commercial service tool (J-43897-18 or J-43897-12)] and approved anti-seize lubricant (commercial service tool).

7.CHECK INTERMITTENT INCIDENT

Component Inspection

1.CHECK HEATED OXYGEN SENSOR 2 HEATER
