CAR OXYGEN SENSOR REPLACEMENT

The automotive oxygen sensor is a device used to measure how much-unburned oxygen is left in the exhaust. Oxygen is very important for the exhaust. It is unable to combust gasoline, for the vehicle to be able to run, without oxygen in the system. However, too much-remaining oxygen could be harmful to the automobile. This is where the oxygen sensor comes into the equation. It will measure the remaining oxygen to see if there is too much left. Oxygen sensors typically last you 30,000 miles to 50,000 miles or 3 to 5 years.

SENSOR REPLACEMENT

On average, oxygen sensors should last around 4 years. However, there are warning signs that you should pay attention to. These signs will tell you if your oxygen sensor is faulty. Those signs include A check engine light, Bad gas mileage, an unusual engine noise, and a failure of an emissions test. Also, if your vehicle is older, there is a higher chance that your oxygen sensor could be bad. So, bring it to Tedious Repairs and have it checked out! We can perform a complete vehicle inspection, which will include an inspection of the oxygen sensor and its nearby neighbors.

This unique automotive tool was proven to better gas mileage for the drivers! Because of this, automobile owners fell in love.
