What is an oxygen sensor replacement?
Sensors are used in the vehicle’s exhaust system to tune engine performance and emissions. There are usually several, and eventually they need to be unscrewed from the exhaust system pipes and replaced.
How is a oxygen sensor replacement done?
Each sensor replacement is fairly straightforward, but it may require heating or other techniques to remove the device, as well as some expertise to read vehicle computer codes and locate the appropriate sensor.
Symptoms that indicate you need a oxygen sensor replacement?
In most cases, the car will know there’s a problem long before the driver does. In addition to the Check Engine light, fuel consumption will increase, emissions will degrade, and vehicle performance may suffer.
The engine computer relies on the oxygen sensors to adjust engine performance, so the sensors are an important part of the car’s operation.
Can I do it myself?
Theoretically you can make this repair yourself, but you’ll need a code reader to determine, in most new cars, which oxygen sensor needs replacing, according to the bank number and sensor number. Mechanics have additional scanning equipment to isolate emissions and performance-related problems, which may have several causes. You may find it tricky to access the sensor, and once you do, it may be frozen in place by the high temperatures it experiences, requiring special techniques to remove it. An oxygen sensor replacement may not be the best use of your valuable time, when a Wrench mobile mechanic can do it while you work or relax at home.
