My O2 sensor plug thread looks slight smaller than a 20mm x 1.5 so 18 must be it.

Here's my two old go-to tools, as Dan noted, 18mm x 1.50mm thread.
There are other O2 sensor threads out there, but thankfully we don't use them, so these dead common tools are easier to find.

Chaser if the space is tight, and actual tap if the threads won't work with the chaser due to damage or rust. Tap needs way more room though to work... Rolling Eyes
