    O2 sensors are something I have not had to tackle yet on my truck. However, I have spent alot of time under her without lifting her up(4x4 with 33" tires, add-a-leaf and strut extensions.) I am not a big guy either. If you have to lift the expy, secure her well on the jackstands. All I can offer is: soak the sensor threads well with PB blaster and use a nickel anti seize compond on the threads of the replacements. Be sure not to contaminate the sensor surface with the compound. Hope this helps.

    Hello Sako 75, My thoughts on changing my on 02 sesnors on my 05 Expedition. I was able to take out my old spark plugs with 100,000 on them as you know that was a special event by itself. So I can save so much by me doing the 02 sensors them I wanted to ask you if you thought I could access them by just useing auto ramps plus jack stands and or 2 ton floor jack.
    Thanks for your thoughts on this matter.

    Other than confirmation by other FTE members - not any. I do have a lot of experience with K&N's. Quite frankly, I really like them. However, My experience with the filter in my truck is a love/hate relationship. I do run the K&N filter, and as part of my routine maint. program, I clean the throttle body and MAF senser at every oil change. Prior to adopting this regiment, I had frequent TAC codes, resulting in fail safe modes. Simple deduction leads me to the conclusion that the filter/oil charge is to blame. I do all my own mechanical work (nobody touches my truck) and I know my truck very well. It has 165,000 miles - runs and looks like new. My suggestion would be to run the filter, just clean the TB and MAF sensor every 5 or 10 thousand miles. Also, If you can spare the change ($) invest in a programmer. I run the edge. It has (I believe) extended the life of my tranny, as well as increased performance and fuel mileage. Hope this helps. Bob

    You suggest losing the K&N. What tech. info do you have to support this. I put K&N intake on about 2 weeks ago. The overall shifting and accelation seem to be smoother. I'm 48 years old and don't mash the pedal. I drive about 90 miles a day back and forth to work, and can use the extra mpg.
