1992 Ford Taurus Install Oxygen Sensors
The oxygen sensor in your 1992 Ford Taurus controls the emissions and is an important part of your exhaust system. The sensor monitors the amount of oxygen within the exhaust as it leaves the engine. It regulates the amount of oxygen when too little is being burned to increase the quality of the vehicle's emissions. You will know when it's time for a new oxygen sensor because the Taurus will fail a required emissions test. Replacing the sensor requires only a couple of tools and should be done immediately to ensure your vehicle runs smoothly.

 Install Oxygen Sensors
- Place the Taurus in park and allow the vehicle to cool down for 15 minutes. The components will still be warm to the touch, which is best for oxygen sensor installation.
- Open the hood of the car and locate the oxygen sensor. The sensor is a small, white rubber plug on the passenger side of the exhaust manifold.
- Disconnect the sensor with a socket wrench and 22 mm socket. Turn the wrench counterclockwise until the sensor is loose enough to pull off the manifold.
- Install the new oxygen sensor by pushing it into place on the manifold. A click tells you the sensor is installed and secure in place. Close the hood of the Taurus.
