Absolutely excellent. He arrived early and worked efficiently. My wife and I were planning a trip for later that week and wanted the car to be road-ready. Patrick found another issue and came back the same day to fix it — definitely above and beyond. He explained everything he did and why it was necessary. I've often wished I knew a mechanic who I could trust to be honest and always professional, and Patrick fulfilled that wish. Will definitely be asking him to work on our cars in the future. Also, first time using YourMechanic — a top-notch, needed service.

This was my first time trying out yourmechanic and Theodore made it a pleasure. I wasn't sure what to expect, and what I got was the feeling of having a family friend come out to work on my car. I look forward to scheduling further repairs/maintenance as they come up.

He was very nice and friendly from the very movement he showed up. He was on time and after quick meet and explaining job, he went straight to work. He explained how he was going to perform Gasket valve replacement and CV axle replacement job. I left him with his work and after few hrs, when I got back. He was finishing up with the job. He explained to me in detail what was done and what he recommends to make make sure car stays in good condition. Over all I was very happy with the experience and would call and recommend "yourmachinic.com" and specially Franky to all who I know. Thank you Franky

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.
