Default Noob Question, Probably.

've got an acquaintance that has an 03 PT GT. Was running the code for the o2 sensor; question I have, is where are they located on the turbo models? Also: is it safe for the car to run without a replacement for it for a bit? (low on funds atm.)

thanks in advance.

The turbo models most likely have the same two 02 sensors as the non-turbo. One Upstream by the exhaust port and one Downstream by the CAT. Yes, you can run without one or the other or probably both but gas mileage will suffer and you might have problems with the engine and might set some more codes.

On the GT (and turbo lite), the top oxygen sensor screws into the cast iron exhaust elbow between the turbo and catalytic converter. And the bottom one screws into the side of the catalytic converter itself as shown in CREWZIN's photo above.

Thanks Todd.

Non-turbo Upstream is right behind the engine...

Running on a bad H02 (heated oxygen sensor) can cause other more costly engine problems.

At this point if it is only a H02 that needs to be replaced it is wiser to do so now.

New sensors are not that expensive with a bit of searching. Here are brand new Standard Motor Products parts for only $16.50 each, with free shipping, for your 2003 GT:

UPSTREAM:

I know this may start a loooooong debate......................to which I most likely will not respond beyond this?


SMP should stand for Standard Motor Parts. However in the aftermarket parts you will often see it "mis-used" or assumed the original Standard Motor Parts manufacture of any given parts.

Only authorized dealers can use the correct name SMP with the registered trade mark. all other will come in a no name generic package or box and are not of the same quality as the original SMP Standard Motor Parts.

This is not to say that the parts are will not perform as well only that you are NOT getting an original Standard Motor Part item.

SMP - Standard Motor Products

Hmm, well It is quite possible they are no-name sensors and the seller is exploiting the name. It says no box but does state Standard Motor Products as the brand so who knows.

I actually bought new, in the original box and bags, NTK sensors for mine from ebay for about $25 each, but the sellers has none left, otherwise I would have posted those up instead.

Anyway, with a bit of searching you CAN find name brand sensors, with box and all for a great deal on ebay.

The OP probably will never come back and read this thread anyway. lol

^^^^^^^^lol


Original STANDARD MOTOR PARTS
Always supply a box with printed information and packaging


The seller is using a variation from an original companies name.
This perhaps clears the seller in the legal world?

Actually in the "Item Specifics" section it actually says: Brand: Standard Motor Products so there is that, but it should have a box and literature. Well anyway since no box, I wouldn't buy them anyway.

You can get a genuine DENSO upstream on rockauto for about $16. The downstream Denso is $19 on ebay.

Upstream:

Downstream:
