Quote:IIRC, the ACDelco sensors on RockAuto are 170-208 each. You have 2 of them. That plus dealer markup and labor would equal $800. Which is why when faced with the choice of spending $800 at the dealer, or buying 20 sensors at a junkyard at $5 each and hope 2 of them work, you know I'm gonna walk out of PicknPull with a bag full of sensors and a tired wrist from pulling them. I have the same issue with dealer markup on the electrical relays in my Intrepid. The dealer wants $17 apiece for the nine relays under the hood. That's $153. I can buy a bag full of relays at PickNPull for $5. Have a couple dozen in the trunk. And if one doesn't work, I'm out what, 30 cents? And I have skads more in the bag ready to try.
I feel I can hardly expect anyone to believe this story. But it's true. I called a GM dealership for the price on an O2 sensor for my Metro... $800!! I just about fell out of my chair. No, I didn't buy it. At least my headlights are $15 apiece.
