    Ok, need to replace the OS on the car and although I am ok with working
    on vehicles I am far from a pro. Is it easy to install or should I just
    cough up the $$$ to have it installed?

    Since you don't post what Stratus or what engine or which of the possible
    4 -02 Sensors may be bad it would be hard to answer.
    Some are easy to get to and some are a pain. How do you know which one is

    You "think?" Ever try reading the manual, or looking under the hood?

    Most O² sensors are threaded into a boss on an exhaust manifold, and
    care has to be taken if they've been there a long time. Usually some
    penetrating oil around the threads will help crack them loose, but
    since there was anti-sieze put on the threads at the factory, they
    shouldn't be that big a problem. Access, however, especially on V6s,
    can be a niggly if not insurmountable problem, however.

  5. You had no idea what an O2 sensor was even for, until you read my
    posts- you thought sensors were all BS.

    All of a sudden, you're saying "read the manual", etc.

    Just like I say.

    sorry, you can't be me !

    Keep in mind, all- this "DeserTBob" guy is no mechanic- he is a FIRED
    Bell Telephone employee, the "phone guy" they send to your house, when
    your phone don't work.

    But all that work has now been subcontracted out- and DeserTBoob lost
    his job- so that's why he landed on Usenet unemployed and talking a
    good mechanic's job...

    He drives a 1978 Honda- I rest my case !
