Clean Wideband o2 Sensor?

My AEM UGEO has been acting up lately, so today I reconnected it and made sure all the wires from the gauge to the o2 Sensor were good and they were. So my car has been running bigger Injectors (310cc) without the SDS for a month or so and has been running rich. I believe that this has clogged the Sensor up so I was wondering what is a safe way to clean it, and the stock ones as well since they probably are not in the best condition.

I know that I can buy the new o2 Wideband Sensor for about 70 bucks, but I would first like to see if this will work!

i wouldnt even try to clean one unless it was a last resort before buying a new one but if you are going to attempt to clean it, I would suggest the safest thing to use to be CRC's Electric Parts Cleaner. Autozone sells it as well as most parts stores and it is what I use to clean IACs and Hotwire MAF sensors.

I would ONLY use a clean rag or a clean paper towel to wipe the black carbon off the sensor tips. No liquids at all. This goes for all types of O2 sensors (wide/narrow). Honestly though, I would check the control module ground/power before cleaning the sensor itself.

The power and ground are fine and so are all the wires to the Sensor, but the fucking car always reads 14.9 so I know its clogged and I have been running these bigger fuel injectors without the SDS so I believe thats what caused it.

Yepp sometimes it will hit 14.8 but mostly 14.9, O well they go for 70 bucks on eBay so I will just go that route when the SDS is back on.

Read the post, its a AEM UGEO, and no you do not have a AEM sensor because they use Bosch 5 Wire Wideband Sensors, AEM does not make a sensor, n00b.

I have an AEM UEGO gauge with sensor..


Same thing as I have...


so yeah its the SAME THING..

LOL


n00b


AEM gauges and the sensors are two different things.

I meant I have the sensor that came with it.. my car has backfired lots of times when I was running lean and the sensor is still good. The sensors have a warranty.

Unless the sensor was really REALLY close to the primary exhaust manifold.. but then again what smart person would do that right?


I got mine at the bottom when the two headers connect on a boosted klze.

Never said you do not have the AEM Gauge, I simply said you do not have a AEM Sensor, its Bosch Wideband 5 Wire. Anyways it does not matter, if the gauges get to clogged or old they have to be replaced. And mine needs to be replaced.
