Casey was very friendly communicative and helpful. While doing the oil change, he gave me several tips on doing the oil change at home myself and explained every steps. He gave me a call before his departure to let me know that he has left the place, but due to the traffic he arrived at my office 45 mins later to the appointment time. It would have been nice if I had some heads up about it before I called him 5 mins after the appointment time to see where he was at. During the call he let me know that he'd get to my office in 20 min, and arrived 40 min after that call. Well, I guess to be fair there was bad traffic and he had left his place 40 min prior to the appointment time and the office building was a little bit tricky to find. Anyways, after his arrival the oil change was completed in timely manner and overall everything else was very satisfactory.

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.
