    in canada that O2 sensor is $80 for the cheep one
    and a set of brake pads for the front $ 65 on special
    rubber boots for the front caliper ( pins ) $ 25 with taxes

    and with road salt every thing goes faster
    every year i have to pull front appart to regrease it and clean out the junk so breakes work

    ps its not just the escort my truck does the same thing

    if you clean it 's time and a dab of grease
    or if you dont later it's roters and break pads $$$

    If you spend "only" 50 bucks to fix your car. consider yourself lucky.

    You must have not read my other threads.

    I've completely overhauled the top end of the block, new head and gaskets. ($415)

    And don't even get me started on my other cars...

    Where do you get any other brand, I know AutoZone, and O'Reilly's only had Bosch when I got mine.

    Sorry,that answer is wrong.BOSCH is mainly on the german cars,DENZO makes most of the asian cars with some domestic. BOSCH will work on some cars but not on all.I am a ASE L1 and state of connecticut certified emission tech and bosch will not work on toyotas at all.I had problems with all the BOSCH o2's i was putting on toyotas and now use DENZO on all asian cars.WALKER o2's work ok but more and more i find you must use OE manufacturer to keep the CEL off. I buy OEM from the aftermarket for domestic,i have a warehouse that carries DELCO and MOTORCRAFT at 1/2 the price and i have a corporate deal with crysler that gives me big discounts on parts right from the dealer.

    my o2 sensor for my Integra was $120. I think my work sells o2 sensors for escorts more then that, around the $80 mark.

    Huh, I've never had a problem with them. We used to get a discount buying the BOSCH universials, installed them in everything that needed it and they never came back.

    More OEM's are using widebands or air fuel ratio sensors.Bosch widebands do not read the same as the denzo's so the car sets a air fuel ratio sensor code and back it comes.More and more OE is the only thing that will work.The same goes for spark plugs,put BOSCH platinums in a nissan and it will be right back with a po30# code.Iridiums are the only plug that stands up to this ignition system.

    I'm thinking getting a SAFC and going wideband this summer, tune it to perfect.
