I have a 2001 Toyota Camry and the O2 sensor near the front of the car is bad (this is confirmed by the code that the computer has returned).
Though I'm not particularly knowledgable about cars (though I'm learning as I go), I'm comfortable working on them given enough information on what exactly I need to do . In this case, I'd like to know the proper hardware and procedures for replacing the O2 sensor.
- What O2 sensor do you recommend for replacing the bad unit?
- It's my understanding that some sensors can be easily replaced; others may require a bit of soldering. I'd prefer the former, but I'm also open to the best suggestions you guys have.
- I also understand that, after replacing the sensor, I should disconnect the battery to clear the computer, correct?
I'm looking to do this as cost effectively as possible.
