Oxygen Sensor Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Oxygen Sensor all about?

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.

Oxygen Sensor-MATROX-1

Keep in mind:

  • Many oxygen sensors are damaged by leaking oil or coolant. If that is the case, the cause of that leak needs to be identified and repaired, or else the replacement oxygen sensor will be damaged as well.
  • New vehicles require specific oxygen sensors, and not the universal sensors that were common prior to 1996.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer in the car for codes.
  • Inspect for vacuum leaks and holes in the exhaust system.
  • Remove and replace the oxygen sensor if it is bad.
  • Check electrical connections.
  • Check for proper operation of oxygen sensors.
  • Clear diagnostic codes.
  • Test drive car.

Our recommendation:

Keep up with the tune-ups. If check engine light is on, don't drive the car too long without getting it inspected. If check engine light is flashing, pull over and get the car towed to avoid costly repairs. Ask the mechanic to inspect the vacuum hoses and leaks in the exhaust system. If the vacuum hose or exhaust system is leaking, it will display an oxygen sensor fault code. Replacing an oxygen sensor may not fix the problem.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Oxygen Sensor?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Car is getting poor gas mileage.
  • Emission test fails.

How important is this service?

Your vehicle has multiple oxygen sensors, and they all help the car run optimally. The front sensors measure how much oxygen is in the exhaust stream to measure how rich or lean the gases leaving the gas chamber are. The rear sensors measure the oxygen content of the gases as they leave the catalytic converter. The oxygen sensors then relay this information to your vehicle’s electronic control unit, so that it can adjust as necessary. Because cars depend on an ideal fuel-to-air ratio to function optimally, the oxygen sensors are leaned on for engine performance. When your oxygen sensors fail your car will run less smoothly, get worse mileage, and have worse emissions.

Joseph arrived exactly on time. He was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He explained in layman terms what he was going to do and why the replacement parts were necessary. He also recommended I look into carrying out other repairs with Your Mechanic. This was my first experience with Your Mechanic and it was a flawless one. Joseph was very competent. I would highly recommend Your Mechanic to others, as a matter of fact, I already have. Your Mechanic offers painless and excellent service.

Well for starters, I have been having an issue with my 2011 Kia for at least 2 months. Many dead batteries, non starts and two trips to the local mechanics and they couldn't diagnose the problem. All they said was its an open circuit issue. If your car dies again bring it to the dealer. NOT ACCEPTABLE! To go forward, Danny showed up on time and was very professional and knowledgeable. Danny spent many hours to diagnose my issue. We discussed many reasons for my battery drain and non starts. He detected an issue with my brake switch. It was faulty and was giving an open circuit that was draining my battery. At first he did an electrical lead test, it said it was fine. Danny still was not convinced since the switch moved and didn't seem right. He removed it from my vehicle and did several lead tests on it. Sometimes it said ok and others said it was faulty. This explains all my issues..The local auto parts store didn't have it in stalk, so Danny went out of his way to find one and return to install it. Guess what, My car starts fine now with no issues. What was the problem (people with a Kia Optima may ask with same issue ). I'm not the first, maybe rare, however, there is a problem with the brake light switch. It is located behind the brake pedal and is electronically connected to the vehicle. When faulty, even slightly, it can cause a failure and keep the car from starting. It may even make you think your battery is bad and buy a new one. That maybe true as well, however a bad brake light switch can cause a possible reverse negative feedback to the computer keeping your car from starting , draining the battery so bad because it causes an open circuit Yip crazy right. The price for the part rangers between $12 and some change to $21 and some change. In final, Danny recharged the battery and changed out the part. Car started right up and is great. Thank you Danny ten times over and to " Your Mechanic.com" . Wish I knew of you all years ago. The amount of savings compared to a dealer was amazing.
