I needed a Pre-purchase Inspection on a BMW E85 Z4 3.0si, and since the top motor was being replaced it needed to be a the dealership where the car is located. Jamahl called to say he arrived early, but I missed the call. He called me again after it was completed, and basically confirmed my thoughts on the car, besides cosmetic things it was in very good condition. It's getting new tires and softtop motor, and Inspection II is due which I already due. The dealership tech said he was cordial, efficient and professional. Those are hallmarks of an excellent technician. At the end my phone consult with Jamahl, I asked him if I can request him going forward to work on my Z4, he agreed and told me the steps required for it. I will request his services going forward. Excellent service.

All about Oxygen Sensor Replacement

With each new model year, manufacturers are adding more oxygen sensors to better manage engine operation. Some high performance engines have an oxygen sensor for each cylinder as well as one for the rear of each catalytic convertor. The sensors are located either underneath the hood or underneath the car. The oxygen sensors are connected (screwed) to the exhaust pipe, either in front or back of the catalytic converter. The front (upstream) sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system. The purpose of the front oxygen sensor(s) is to measure how rich or lean the gases are as the gases exit the combustion chamber. Depending upon whether the exhaust gas is lean (high in oxygen content) or rich (low in oxygen content), the amount of fuel entering the engine is adjusted by the engine management computer to try and maintain an ideal mixture that produces the lowest emissions output from the catalytic convertor. Rear (downstream) sensors are located behind the catalytic converter. The purpose of the rear oxygen sensor(s) is to monitor the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the catalytic convertor. If one or more of the oxygen sensors are faulty, your car may not pass the emissions test. If you drive your car with a faulty oxygen sensor, you may get poor gas mileage and it can damage the catalytic converter.
