    Montero Sport to be exact.

    I have no idea where these are at but don't want to pay $1500 to replace them all.

    On a Jeep its easy but on some there are 4 O2's so with parts and labor it can be that much. If you have multiple then it doesn't mean its hard because of price. If you only have 1 it means its tough! You will need a special wrench to do a good job. You can buy it online most likely. Don't use a channel lock or any wrench but the one made for the O2. Sears might stock them but you would have to go online and look.

    shut up.

    almost any auto parts store will stock an O2 socket ...

    go buy a haynes manual ($20) and read through the section on your O2 sensors. see if its something you can handle. if not, find a friend that will do it for you.

    IIRC, the monteros are not an easy change .... so look into it before you start.

    umm theyre not hard to find, just follow your exhaust... how hard they are depends on how hard they are to get to.
