code and o2 sensor help
 
My check engine light on my 2006 330xi was on so I went to CTire to get it diagnozed and this is what came back.

codes p2297 bank 1 sensor 2 p112c o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 p0131 bank 1 sensor 1 front 0-2 sensor defect upstream 0-2 sensor

they told me I needed to get an 02 sensor replaced and quoted me 340.00 for the sensor and 1 hour labour.


Does this sound about right? Can I get a cheeper sensor?


thank you

If you buy it in Canada the sensor is probably around $150?

If you buy it from the USA it is less than $100...

So you need the upstream sensor?

gerry,

look up your part numbers on realoem.com with your vin

(bmw called o2 sensors lambda sensors)

buy OEM bosch sensors on ebay/rockauto/etc for less.

I m no mechanic and dont know what sensor I need:confused: Is there a way to know so I can order the right one?

Kind of strange when I look up
P2297 it should be sensor 1 but your have it as sensor 2

Anyway don't quote me on it but I think it is the upstream on (The one on the exhaust manifold).

RockAuto has it for around $57 + shipping

I copied from the CTire paper. If they are both that price I will get them both changed. I did a parts number search on Rockauto and cant find them

well CT is never that great of a place.... You should look into getting a cable yourself. They're fairly cheap. Considering how much you paid to get a code check, 1-2 code check from a shop can already pay for the cable.

Anyway RockAuto has the Upstream O2 for $47 and downstream O2 for $57. Plus shipping and any duty. Still cheaper than getting it local. You might as well pick up filters too if you need them they're cheap there too.
