O2 sensor + jb weld = ?
When I took my o2 sensor out I could not re thread the new one. The threads were shot. I sanded down the threads and jb welded it on with the marine weld. Then I just thought... "I wonder if it'll get too hot?" Any thought

JB weld maximum temperature is 500* F according to their website

Any muffler shop can weld in a new threaded bung in about 15 minutes or less.

why not? you can drive without an o2 sensor, it will just throw a check engine light and might not run absolutely perfect.

I thought you run the chance of messing up the engine

Just a NOTE:
i have a 91 s10 that the last PO jb'd the o2 in. THINK ABOUT THE NEXT TIME ... what it takes to get that out and weld on a new nut.

as if just getting the old one out wasnt enough of a bother....

I had it tacked on. Jb melted

$80 at midas will take care of the problem!

(or) replace the pipe!
