Check engine light and O2 sensor

Anyone have a good write up on how to change an O2 sensor?

TacoRose's truck throws the P133 code. Usually doesn't do it when she drives it <10 miles to school, but if driven any further, the code comes up.

The auto trans models dont have the harness nicely attached above the transmission, they are easier to change.

I need to climb under there and see if it uses the connector or the hardwire. Both types showed up in my online search.

And thanks Layton! Those are the writeups I need.

well everything was going smoothly right up to putting on the rear nut...then it wouldn't go on easily...now a section of those threads are missing...I had the front nut on and got the idea I might swap the nuts...well now neither one will go on right...and it's 7 p.m. on Sunday night...do you think there is a parts store that would have those two nuts and be open at this time of day?

Yep, welcome to Driftinco's luck with working on ANYTHING let alone my tacos...

and the wife wonders why I hire folks to do anything more than change a light bulb!

Well, almost...

Looks like a trip to the Toyota dealer tomorrow.

anyone know what size those nuts are by any chance? used a 12mm wrench on them but that doesn't tell me what size the bolt is...

so now roxanne is tieing up the garage, half fixed and I have another parts run to make...

Yes, I am now officially whining!!!

ummmmm 12 mm would be something like an 8mm stud.... but if you already stripped the studs then im not sure what you are hoping to accomplish. give me a call tomorrow. im off and the only thing i have to do to the camaro is paint the block. maybe i can swing down and give you a hand... maybe lol

Alright, here's the rest of the story. Just finished with the O2 sensor. The O2 sensor was $139 + tax from PepBoys...that's about the average price from what I read.

The nuts, which I picked up at Liberty Toyota this afternoon were $3.49 each. Part number A03-04-F4 or 90179-08059. Not sure which but both look like they could be the part number. And I bought a tap and die set from Advanced Auto Parts (I've been looking for a "reason" to get one of those sets anyways).

After tapping the stud (8mm at 1.25 pitch) and putting on the new nuts, it went together rather slick! And that equals a happy Tacoma guy.

But I did have to give TacoRose some grief though...it has evidently been a very long time since the oil was changed. So I did that too. Roxanne is a very happy taco now.
