AEM Wideband O2 sensor replacement - Bosch 17018

FYI, the AEM wideband sensor is a Bosch 17018 which can get picked up at any auto parts store. This will save you compared to buying the re-branded AEM sensor. I just installed one today and it is working great.

Why did you replace it? did it go bad or what happened?

Mine is acting up and im wondering if i have something wrong or the sensor is dirty and starting to have issues?

Started with some different fuel i ran a full tank of been acting funny ever since.

+1

Mine went bad from a bad location and messed up the harness, i got the Bosch 17018 locally for $61. + a $10. rebate and installed it today. Works just like it did before with the stock sensor.

Thanks for the tip, save me about $50.
