    I've got a bad O2 sensor.. And instead of fixing it i was planning on buy some mil's.. But I wanted to make sure they would fix my problem.

    Yes, it's the passenger side rear.. And I thought about getting some MIL's since they are only between 60-70 after I already picked up a new o2 sensor, which was itself $73, and tried to remove my old one, which didn't work..

    you can go on corral.net in the classifieds and buy a set of 4 new O2 sensors for $70 shipped or just the rears for $50 shipped.

    But the mils should also turn off your light. If you have a handheld tuner or are getting one you can turn them off with that also.

    Yeah, see I just bought a new one and decided to just change it out... And when that didn't work, let me tell you I tried.. Heated up the exhaust, sprayed some PB blaster.. Wouldn't budge. So I didn't want to take it in even if it was going to be like $30 to fix it when I can just get some MIL's and it'll be cheaper that way.

    MILs will NOT shut the CEL off if the actual o2 sensor is bad.
    They only work on a functioning o2 sensor.
    You need to heat it up and remove it so it can be replaced.

    If you can't get it off with a cheater pipe and some PB blaster, somthing is seriously wrong.
