The way to get it out is to heat it up to cherry red with an acetalyne
torch and remove it while it is still hot. Use an Eze-Out or some
other type of extractor if you have to. BTW most sensors come with
some type of anti-seize compound already on the threads. The washer is
a nice touch but not essential.

a bit much, since he never did anything correctly maintenace wise. 
After I get it out, I realize that he did not install a crush washer
and the threaded part is still in the exhaust pipe.  I had the sensor
in my hand and only the outermost threaded part is left in the pipe. 
Has anyone had this happen and how did you get it out?  I tried an
easy out, but it just won't budge.  I used PB Blaster, Corrosion X,
heat, and a few choice cuss words, nothing is working.
