My new Oxygen Sensor package does not include copper anti-seize. I know that is is a good practice, and most S2 sensors come with an anti-seize paste.

I have this anti-seize that I use for my brake. Can I use it when I install my new O2 sensor?

Many thanks to the responses below, it turned out that NTK model that I bought comes with the anti-seize applied to it. I should have checked that.

Did you check the thread? MAny new sensors come with the anti-seize already applied. Copper with glass beads is best, but nickel is better than nothing.

  • No, I did not open the older O2 sensor, because I might decide to return this sensor that I have based on response to this question. – Allan Xu Jun 21 at 18:45
  • Should I invest on Copper anti-seize if it becomes usefull with other repairs? – Allan Xu Jun 21 at 18:46
  • @AllanXu you need to check the threads on the new one, not the old one... – Solar Mike Jun 21 at 19:40
  • @SolarMike thats it! thanks os much. – Allan Xu Jun 21 at 21:13
  • Regardsless, is Copper anti-seize used in many applications, so does it worth buying a bottle? – Allan Xu Jun 21 at 21:14
