    I'm replacing the Oxygen sensor in my 1995 3.0 Acclaim. I have read on
    here that the Bosch unit that everybody sells is not good for my car.
    None of the Napa dealers near me carry the Echlin unit either. I was
    wondering if the Denso unit I can order is any good? I'd rather pay 35
    for that than the $80 for a MoPar unit.

  2. Denso's fine, so's NTK or Standard-Bluestreak or ACDelco.

    Just not Bosch.

    I have a 91 with the same 3.0L and have had no problems with the Bosch O2
    sensor. What's the beef?

    DS has some beef with Bosch. I used a Bosch sensor on my Acclaim for
    three years and 40,000+ miles with no problems whatsoever.

    o5 was the first year in a long long time since they have used bosch 02's
    the thing u have to look at the o2 sensors wires/connector and if there is any
    oil in the connector then the power steering fluid is polluting the 02 and
    shorting out the circuit
    the p/sswitch is bad and allowing ps fluid to flow inside the wiring and
    traveling in the wires to the o2 sensor
    it takes lots of good brake cleaner to get the oil out of the connector and off
    the wires

    I'm correct to assume that the Oxygen sensor is located almost directly
    below the Air cleaner assembly on the 3.0, right?

    I don't have the special chrysler tool, so I'll have to rely on an
    open-end wrench.

    I would remove it with a box wrench and install it with an open end wrench.
