I have a very small supply of money and a small amount of tools to work with. What is my best bet to get that sucker out?

soak it in PB blaster, then try smacking it a few times with a hammer and a long flat blade screw driver to break the rust on the threads and see if you can get an open ended wrench in there, or borrow an oxygen sensor socket/tool from an autoparts store

Most of the time if I was replacing the O2 I would just break off the top and use a 6 point socket to remove it and a box wrench to instal the new one.

only if it was realy stuck in there.

You cant get it off or cant get anything on it because its in an awkward position?

Combo wrench worked for me the first time, the offset angle of the boxed end made it work fine. Also, I was able to double up the wrenches to get more leverage and it came right out.

What I did was take the wrench (the square end) and grinded a notch out of it, so that it would slide over the wires, almost same effect as my o2 socket. Worked like a charm and had it all out in minutes. No PB blaster or anything. This worked great for me as it is a tight fit in that pass side.

It isnt stuck in there or rusted at all. The driver side one i bearly broke a sweat to get it out. Im just having a real problem getting a tool in there.

I don't remember having a problem with mine. I used the O2 sensor tool and if I remember right an extension to get the ratchet free from obstructions..

I think it was a 22mm box end wrench ? Helps to put Anti-seize on the threads when it is installed.
