While shopping for some anti-seize for my O2 sensor install, I came across some transmission lube that had me wondering about whether I could use it as an alternative to anti-seize.
It appears to have the functionality expected of anti-seize in an O2 sensor application
- High temperature resistance (the can says 700 °F)
- Prevention of two dissimilar materials from fusing by forming a coating on the surface it is sprayed
- Durability (assuming this if it is meant for transmissions which see waaay more wear and tear than the average O2 sensor
The motivation behind this question is the apparent scarcity of anti-seize compound in my quarters; I had to spend a good couple of hours before finding a place that actually had some in stock. It would be useful to know for future reference that one can get by with an alternative product that provides similar characteristics.
