    Hopefully you can your sensor fixed though!
    ya well before i even realized it was the wrong one i was already trying to get the old one out and it was rusted to hell no matter what i tried i couldnt get it loose, wd40, extension pipe on my socket wrench for longer handle, and i even snapped one of my extension sockets (and smashed my finger in the process)

    any other suggestion on how to get this sucker out? i already have the right 22mm slotted socket

    Buy some pb blaster and let it soak for a little while. Then try it.

    o2 sensors can be a real pain to remove. Especially if you live in a climate where the roads need to be salted. You need to buy an o2 wrench. Even then you might have a rough time. If all else fails drop the exhaust manifold and try to remove it this way. Yes you will need new exhaust gaskets. Good luck.
