Sorry, I just saw this! I still have not figured out what the issue is, but replacing my sensor with a new OEM one did not fix anything. I am going to try to work on it today!

I ended up buying this one: NTK/NGK 24300 Air Fuel Ratio Sensor.

I don't know about the sensor, the heater core went out, I bypassed it, the engine started overheating as I drove to mandatory training for work, and I blew the head gasket. I replaced the head gasket and then the heater core, but the new core was bad, so I need to install a third, and I keep working on other projects.

However, there is indeed a crack in the exhaust manifold, which is integrated with the catalytic converter, and I have tried patching that.

Everyone says "Stop being cheap and just buy a new unit!"

A new unit would be $500.

I cam going to try everything that I can to avoid paying $500.

Anyway, the cheapest place that I can find selling one of these sensors is RockAuto for $200: https://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/nt...2)+sensor,5132

I appreciate the reply! Unfortunately I don't own the vehicle anymore. Haha. I bought a more up to date vehicle that turned out to be a hybrid.

How does one accidentally buy a hybrid?

I wasn't implying it was an accident. I stumbled across a hybrid online when I was in the market for a fuel efficient vehicle, I hadn't considered ever buying a hybrid. I guess you could say that was the "accident". I didn't really know a lot about them at the time and always associated them with the not so attractive looking Prius. This was all before I found a hybrid I thought was my style of car and a fun one to drive!

I once found a forum post by a guy that wanted to trade in his Civic Hybrid because it didn't look like a hybrid.

My Civic was reliable and fun to drive until I blew the head gasket. My Accord has been reliable, pretty fun to drive, and more of a family car, but I am going to look at Prius tomorrow when a dealership in the next town opens. I drove out today just to make sure that it was there while I was running errands. Prii seem like great and wonderful cars, just boring. It is just weird. If I am able to get one for a good price and it is reliable, it will be fuel-efficient, like my Civic, but seat 4-5 comfortably, like my Accord, while being as long as my Civic.

It will be everything that my two cars are, except fun.
