Tom was very friendly and easy going. He has good sense of humor and was always on time. I wanted to get my spark plugs replaced for my 2010 BMW 5 series. However he did not have the right socket for the spark plugs. So we had to reschedule. It took 2 more appointments to finally get the right socket. It was frustrating because I had to be there for all 3 appointments for 1.5 hrs each. But we persisted and it got fixed.

Theodore was a great help. He was able to diagnose my issue within 20 minutes. Unfortunately, the issue was not something that he could resolve, as it ended up being an issue with the tire itself. He recommended that I go back to the shop where I purchased my tires to have the issue resolved. He's very friendly and professional.

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.
