Ben was beyond professional! He was on time and was able to determine what was wrong with my car within the first few minutes. Afterward, he explained to me what probably caused the problem. The first mechanic was a no-show, which turned out to be a blessing for me! Thanks a million, Ben, and thanks to Michael for the way you handled everything. I will definitely refer you to my colleagues.

Russell called me when he was on his way, showed up on time and with the right parts. He then proceeded to repair my car, explaining what he was doing and got me back on the road in way less time than I ever could have anticipated. He was very courteous and knowledgeable. I don't think I really could not have asked for more. I would recommend him and I would certainly request him again the next time I need car care. Thank you again Russell!

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.
