comment More economic to buy new car and sell quickly or buy a used one?
@JoshCaswell : It is related to motor vehicle maintenance though. The question ought to stay

Do you have O2 sensor voltage(s)? Lambda is another name

Hook it up to a scan tool and report back what you're seeing for long-term and short-term fuel trim values

comment Should I put my (UK) Automatic into Neutral at stops?
Funnily enough, my Touareg's user manual recommends option 2 if you're tired of using option 1

comment Why are gears designed in this pattern in motorcycles?
Your question makes it seem like this is a universal design when in fact it is more of a manufacturer preference. N-1-2-3-4 gear setups do exist, alongside the 1-N-2-3-4 which forms the basis of your question

comment Using dry moly lube as an alternative to anti-seize
Funny you should mention Denso, since these generic O2's are exactly those in AC Delco disguise. I didn't get any tube with it, probably since the threads came coated with an anemic sliver of anti-seize. Could you expand on the significance of thermal conductivity here?

comment How often can I reinflate my tire
I think you should clarify how old your tire is as well. Check to see if there is a 4-digit code stamped on each tire.

comment Yamaha FZ 16 loses smoothness too soon
Smoothness is difficult to measure because it is subjective. Are you talking about vibration levels? Acceleration at full throttle? Power?

Also, your title specifies a part number which is different from the one in the question body. Which one is the right one?

comment How to determine if P0430 is O2 or catalytic converter
There is also the propane test, seeing the OP has access to pre & post O2 sensor readouts
