Help removing an o2 sensor

Page 1 of 2 1  2

It looks as though my o2 sensor may be cross threaded, I'm looking for any ideas on how to get the thing out, it's mounted in the elbow just off the turbo, so I am looking for a way to try & get it out without risk of breaking the thing, any ideas?

If its already cross threaded this is gonna suck. The only thing I can think of is to use a torch to heat just the bung and pipe NOT the o2 itself. But on the other hand the bung and pipe is cheaper than a new o2 if it were me and the threads aren't bad on the sensor itself cut the bung out and cut it off without touching those threads.

I was affraid of that..problem is there isn't much of a bung there to begin with.

....

It looks to barely rise up and be threaded within (soaking in liq wrench regardless), I can't tell if it's the threads from inside or the threads that belong on the sensor, but there is a ring of about 2 threads sitting between the sensor & pipe that are broke loose & sit there. That pipe is liable to be a bitch if I have to replace it, too.

That sucks man. That is cast iron pipe isn't it?

disconnect the wires and put the exact fit boxed end on it with a cheater pipe. If it strips then your gonna have to use a pipe wrench on it.
