Ben was great! I thought my alternator was bad but he found that it was the water pump, which was being replaced as part of the timing belt kit anyway. Ben saved me some money! He explained what he was doing, he was very professional and he's a great guy on top of it all. I'd have Ben work on my cars again without question! I'd give him six stars if I could. Thanks Ben!

This is my second service at my home by YourMechanic. I have been very happy with the service. My Dad taught me to do preventative maintenance on my cars, and to check the oil often. I have a 2001 VW Jetta, which I love. 166,000 miles and counting. I check the oil every other time I get gas, as VWs burn hot. Both mechanics from YourMechanic remarked how well I maintain my car.

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.
