Bellflower Oxygen Sensor Repair
The oxygen sensor is a crucial part of a vehicle’s exhaust system that many drivers in Bellflower may not fully appreciate. This sensor has a direct impact on emissions and can affect not only the car’s engine but also the environment.
When an oxygen sensor fails, it can activate the “check engine” light and reduce fuel efficiency. Typically the size of a spark plug, this sensor has a lifespan of 35,000 to 50,000 miles.
Most vehicles have at least one oxygen sensor in their exhaust system that measures the difference in oxygen levels between the exhaust gas and the outside air. It then sends a voltage signal to the car’s computer, which adjusts the air-fuel mixture to optimize engine performance.
If the sensor malfunctions, it can lead to an increase in emissions and poor fuel efficiency. The engine may also default to a predetermined air-fuel mixture, resulting in a too-rich or too-lean mixture, causing stuttering or loss of power. This can cause deposits in the engine and damage other components like the catalytic converter, resulting in more significant problems in the future.
However, drivers in Bellflower can take comfort in knowing that Orozco’s Auto Service has the necessary diagnostic tools to detect a faulty oxygen sensor. Their certified ASE technicians can quickly replace the sensor and get drivers back on the road with an engine that functions correctly, optimizing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. By keeping their vehicles well-maintained and ensuring that the oxygen sensor is working properly, drivers can help protect the environment and improve air quality for all.
