    Ray why not just cut cable off and use a standard socket once you cracked the O2 sensor

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Conley says:

    Different looking parts with the same part number irritate my OCD. Brake cylinders and calipers are the worst!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DEVAL35 says:

    why would you take the socket off from the sensor to try to turn the sensor with your hand instead of just trying to turn it with the socket? is it better to take the socket off and try to turn with your hand when you just broke it free?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rexen Prime says:

    I have a 98 camry as a work car and the driver door would always close on its own just like this infinity. I got a few of the things that hold the doors open from a salvage yard and replaced the one on my door. No more door closing in on me all the time. 😃

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Morris says:

    Gotta love the customer that brings there own parts cannon and ammo.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Giovanni Smith says:

    Guys an hour long video….finally! Haha, I binge these vids and While the short ones are nice and easy to watch you to watch the longer ones are just so much more satisfying.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars oldhp mopar says:

    On these newer cars you have to know how to read a electrical schematic of the car's wiring. Great job Ray!!!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Barron says:

    Ray I do my work in the dark. What is your excuse

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NJ Phil says:

    I will be the naysayer. I think the silicone solution was pretty good. It just needed some heat shrink around the connectors.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gregarious Antithesis says:

    One would hope you left the guy one of the old o2 sensors or At least the plug in case the future repair comes up with a replacement connector

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Jeffery says:

    you could of just put on a new Deutsch Connector instead of bonding the wires together

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Oman says:

    Sometimes you just have to be “that guy”.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ItsAlwaysRusty says:

    I think that the bad sensor was a universal type that you have to wire in depending on the application. Cheaper than the correct fitting part. Used car dealers use the universal O2's all the time to save a nickle in profit. Usually don't fit well or are wired like this one.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Black III says:

    That screw on those Irwin wire strippers is adjustable. It's an eccentric and has like 4 positions of different grip. They are top quality strippers when used properly.

    That thing will rust away into a shit heap before it needs O2 sensors again. It's already 3/4 of the way there.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Monette says:

    Say Ray i see you wearing your wedding band, does it ever get caught or hot ?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arschgeige says:

    Good Job my Friend! Great´s from Germany! :))))

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timmy Little says:

    My 17yr old son had asked me why I close my eyes when i am working on vehicles some times. I am just gonna send him to this vid and tell him its what the pros do.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars White Trash Bandit270 says:

    Ive fixed a bunch of cars with a blown fuse causing the problem….simple fix sometimes.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Limbaugh says:

    Have you ever had a wreck on a test drive?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neal Fenster says:

    Try marine heat shrink, it has a sealant that melts when you shrink it. Nice repair.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pjc810 says:

    Where did you get those butt connectors? I really like them. That wire stripper is awesome, I have one and use it all the time

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P M says:

    Complimentary comment, to feed the algorithm.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Morton says:

    You expected backlash… out of interest what would be wrong with using M/F connectors on each wire?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hd the wise says:

    There is an adjustment on the wire pliers to account for fine wires

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Briley says:

    Hey Ray! Just an FYI, You can lightly crimp that solder conector to hold the wires in place while your reaching for your heat gun. Keep up the good work!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Becker says:

    anyone who gives you backlash for splicing the wires probably never turned a wrench on a time deadline

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Blanke says:

    Nissan 350 Z ?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fruit Inspector says:

    How did it die while driving at a stoplight? Did he run the light? Did he coast through the intersection?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Blanke says:

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Free Soul says:

    Tribus tools used to make a racheting oxygen sensor tool.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Who's yo Daddy? says:

    How many wrenches are gonna fall victim to GRAVITY 😂

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Berlin says:

    You done good, Ray. 😉

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ralph Haste says:

    i would have put a plug that i could get now, didn't have to be the oem one, wouldn't a anderson style plug have worked ?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Louis Cafaro says:

    That's not a 2007

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars richard renfroe says:

    You are reliving those old Pepsi commercials got the right one baby uh huh. This is the reason I quit wrenching on cars full time I run out of patients to quick

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon O'Connor says:

    My 07 Nissan 350z has the same damn problem with the door!! I learned the hard way when it damn near broke my ankle 😭 I just try to make the best of it now and tell people it has “auto close doors” some people really have believed that too 🤣🤣

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Broussard says:

    Maybe the shift nob is compensation for something

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Scheuer says:

    Nice diagnosis and repair, Ray. I know you can't do "freebies" on unauthorized problems but that door problem might have only been two lost nuts that hold the door check mechanism to the door so, instead, the mechanism just moves inside the door as it closes (rather than allowing it to grab the shaft and hold the door open in either of its two "check" positions.) A potential simple fix that would have saved your leg from multiple impacts. Yes, not something typically done but greatly appreciated if it is fixed. Of course, if the mechanism is broken and needs replacing, a note could be included on the invoice.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Cook says:

    Hey Ray, Thanks for all your videos and something to laugh with you too! for the repair though (solder connections) use crimp and seal butt connectors. The sensor side wire is actually stainless steel stranded and solder doesn't stick to stainless steel. Otherwise very meticulous work!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leonard Altig says:

    Why not do something simple as to remove the engine? haha

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 5iFTY says:

    yea, that car came from up north

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dot64 says:

    Cloth/friction tape should not be used in this situation. It acts like a wick and draws moisture into the splice.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars allbrant says:

    Didn't have time to go to the junk yard to get a connector?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bmichael103 says:

    That repair will outlast the car. It was beautiful indeed!!!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Iocco says:

    Crusty? You should come work on some Salt belt cars up in People's Republic of NY

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samuel Ferree says:

    I always wondered, why not cut off the wires on the sensors being removed so you’re not fighting it coiling the whole time it’s being removed. Seems like it would help a little. Another great video btw!
