oxygen sensor question..

alright.. my 97 from what i was told has a 98 ZJ grand cherokee 4.0 engine . now the part number for both models are different. should i go ahead with a ZJ oxygen sensor? would the plug fit? http://www.quadratec.com/products/52449_0286.htm or order a 97 TJ sensor which is a different part number. also.. are the computers the same for the both? if not, should it have one from a ZJ? thanks getting terrible mileage

All your wiring harness should still be TJ, so you would need a TJ 02 sensor.

If you can post a picture, this can be verified. Post a picture under the hood and another showing the upstream 02 sensor.

If the engine swap was done correctly all the necessary TJ parts and engine accesories were installed on the ZJ block. Your Jeep, and your computer, don't know and can't tell the difference what block is installed. Order the correct parts for the make, model and year of Jeep you own.

I would buy an O2 sensor from a local parts store so I can compare the sensor and plug before I buy it.

You may even find that more than one model of Jeep uses the exact same O2 sensors.

just took the pics. right now it has the 97 TJ bosch sensor with the plug. reading up that bosch isn't the way to go and with the error code 21 i'm getting

(Upstream oxygen sensor response slower than minimum required switching frequency. Upstream oxygen sensor heating element circuit malfunction. Downstream oxygen sensor heating element circuit malfunction. Downstream oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating range. Oxygen sensor voltage too low, tested after cold start. (Upstream or Downstream) Left oxygen sensor input voltage maintained above the normal operating temperature.)

should i replaced both up and downstream sensors?

I would just do the upstream sensor.

I would also consider replacing your down pipe.

An easy way to do this is with a new cat, such as a high flow cat from Mangaflow. They sell a direct fit cat converter with pipe all the way to the header for around $100.

Someone replaced part of your down pipe and did a hack job. The 90 degree bend is killing your exhaust flow.

And I would get the 02 sensor from the dealer.

You can negotiate with them on their prices. If you can get it down to 10% over cost, you're doing good.

with o2 sensors ALWAYS use the OEM version. I can't even count how many people i know that have had issues with knock off o2 sensors.
