I have never, in all the years they have been making narrowband O² sensors, found a "dirty" one--if by that you mean one that cleaning could fix. By the time they get fouled with silicone, leaded gas or an overly rich mix, and fail they are shot...

so what i said worked i take it, good to know you fixed the problem
