ok to state 2 questions....
1: $20 for o2 sensors... it crap try about $60(perfered cust pricing) adn both times i go to shucks... they were the wrong sensor.
2: no cleaning the o2 wiht carb and choke cleaner is not bad... ive done it for ever, and a grip of my guys do it monthly to keep the cars running good!
