Are you sure you have one (an 0xygen sensor)? Do you use unleaded fuel in your location? Is your car fuel injected (the "TE" designation would indicate it is fuel injected)? In order to have an oxygen sensor the car would have an emissions control system. Initially these were developed for US export models only, and eventually were made available elsewhere. The 200 engine in the car you have was not one of the ones imported to the US, and that is why I am asking the question. It may be possible that your car does not have a catalytic converter and therefore the controls that are required to make the combustion process work effectively with a catalytic converter. Jim
