Decided to take another look at swapping the O2 sensor out for the heated one this morning. Current state appears to be a 1994 vintage.

Going to have to break out the wallet wrench and just get the local napa shop to deal with it. Nothing left of the existing to grab except with a pipe wrench/channel locks/etc.

Also realized I'm missing a bolt from the transmission pan....

O2 sensors can be a PITA for sure.I know when I installed a new one years ago I cross threaded it so it's gonna be fun when it comes time to change it.I know,I know....dumb ass me LOL.
Thats a problem for future you, maybe even someone else.
Ugh. That might be easier to just weld a new bung next to that one and cut the pigtail off. :superhack:
Yeah, I dropped by napa today and talked to them about welding in a new bung. Not really something I want to deal with. It'll be getting a heated sensor wired in when it happens. Already have the stuff to do it, just not the motivation with household projects occurring.

Looks like I'll be opening the cooling system back up again soon. Let it warm up this evening to move it out if the middle of the driveway and saw a water trail up the hill after I shut it down. Hopped out and checked, definitely antifreeze. Pop the hood and it's coming from the thermostat neck and upper radiator hose.

Will be getting a new neck for it and ideally constant tension clamps if I can find the part numbers and source some.
