Though the repair could not have been made on the day of the first appointment, Alex got my car back and running until our rescheduled appointment. He replaced my master brake cylinder which was leaking before. Alex was quick and professional and was knowledgeable about any questions that i asked him. I highly recommend considering him for your own car repair needs

Martin did an awesome job and quick! I was impressed and learned a few things as well. I have had other companies change my oil. They always stripped the bolt or lost bolts that they shouldn't have removed.

He was professional and courteous but I have to jump my car off every time I want to go somewhere. The lights and everything comes on fine so I think something from the battery may not be connected to the starter properly. I say this because a friend had a similar problem. Now I have to call again. Thankfully I am off but its a Sunday so I don't know if I will be able to get anyone.

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.
