    The first Photo shows #1 Oxygen Sensor, it's missing one Nut and the other is almost gone. I need to take it out so i can clean it or replace it, the 2nd photo shows #2 (all normal). I'm afraid to start working on the 1st before asking what and what not to do. Any Advise? Thank you!

    Wow I'd say that nut has had it! I imagine if your careful enough not to damage the threads you could try some slip-joint pliers (aka channel locks) and try to take it off and hope it just falls to pieces. Does'nt look like much is holding it, good luck!

    I have done all the hi-pro mods for a life time, since I got this truck at a great price, I will be happy with showroom new.
    depending on the miles on your truck I would say its time to replace. i believe its a 10mm nut, if not its a 12mm.

    I just replaced my front one because it was throwing a code. It was 12mm
