    Cat Converter question

    Hi,
    2007 Magnum SRT8.


    I'm talking to my mechanic and he tells me the check engine light is on because the Ox sensor is falling out of the nut that it is attached to. He says the nut where it fastens in it so rusted it can not be attached. The nut is just hanging on.
    Here is my ?
    Can you replace that area where the Ox sensor is or do you have to replace the whole pipe it is attached to from manifold on down?
    Thanks,
    BQ

    Exhaust shop should be able to repair but it might be easier to buy a new pipe if its rusted out, its all one piece.

    They sell new O2 bungs for very cheap. Any exhaust shop on the planet should be able to cut the old rusty bung off, and weld in a new one. the fact that your "mechanic" hasn't thought of this $15 solution would have me worried.

    I'd weld up the old bung, install a new one and get a new 02 sensor and be done with it. I got a bung at my local exhaust shop for 5.00. Cheap stuff. Cheap fix.

    Hi,
    I got the new bung and sensor put on and the 2096 code has come back on. Any thoughts now? Can the bung used be the wrong one? Ex. Too deep or too shallow to get the O2 reading correct.
    Thanks.

    I have "devices" I don't know what there called they screw into the stock bung and then you screw your o2 sensor into it . They move the o2 sensor away from the exhaust flow. I was told they had to be installed when the cat back exhaust was installed so as to not trip a code. Sure enough one of them rusted and code popped up . Have been trying to buy more but twice now made order and got guaranteed ship date only to get message days later that they were out of stock. So I am trying a third time . They are called "o2 sensor spacer extender adaptor isolator. I am ordering them on Amazon hope this points you in the right direction .they are installed on my wife's 05 RT awd
