O2 sensor friendly anti-seize

So I've heard that some anti-seizes have metals which can "poison" the O2 sensor.

Can you guys recommend me some O2 sensor friendly anti-seize?

I've got this copper based one that came with a Bosch O2 sensor. Not sure where you can get it or what it's called, but maybe look for a copper based one?

Ok thanks, the primary ingredient in the stuff I have is copper. I should be good.

If anyone knows any specific brands feel free to post them for future reference.

just use regular anti seize and dont be a with it. put a dab on the threads and spread it around and thread it in. ive done countless o2 sensors and always used anti seize, never had a problem with them getting fouled.

edit: permatex for the brand. but really, as long as its anti seize it should work

i mean, ive never replaced a sensor before 150k. what chances do you think there are that you will still own the car after THAT sensor is worn out, with the same exhaust still on the car?

Well it doesn't hurt to use some. It'll make it easier for the next person that has to remove it. Only takes a second and you probably have some around anyway for spark plugs, etc.

^ why?

the chances you will need to take the new o2 senor out ever are very slim. your exhuast will probably be gone before then.

BUT there is a chance youre anti-seize will foul the sensor. small, but there.

why risk it? it seems that the risk of screwing the sensor up with antisieze is higher than the risk that you will have probs removing that sensor at a later date is placed in dry.

you seriously have to be an absolute fucking to foul an o2 sensor with anti seize. you apply a small amount to the threads of the sensor, you dont dip the fucking thing in a tub of it. and what will you do when you replace the exhaust? buy a new o2? thats a retarded waste of money. stop being a lazy idiot and put some anti seize on a part thats damn near guaranteed to corrode.

You can use normal zinc anti-seize. It'll be fine so long as you just use a dab.
You're more likely to screw up the oxygen sensors with RTV on an intake manifold than you will with antiseize if you use them properly.
