I'm very satisfied with Scott's service. He was on time super nice, very fast & efficient. The work area was left like it was untouched. I will have Scott work on my other cars in the near future.

This was my first time using YourMechanic -Allen was early to my appointment - which was great, and I appreciated him calling ahead. Allen was patient and thorough - answering all my questions (I had several lol) quickly identifying a root cause, and providing the estimate. He also did a great inspection on additional issues with my car (not related to my original inquiry) which helped to eliminate any surprises. I decided to book an appointment afterwards for my coolant leak repair - which ended up being a worn out heater core hose.

Anthony

Did a great job on changing my front O2 sensor after making the appointment late in the day on short notice. We did come across an issue in replacing the sensor as it was seized in its socket. Where most people would call it a day and stop once we reached after hours past 5pm - Anthony took it upon himself to go get other tools better suited for the job. In the end he was able to replace my sensor and get my car up and running quickly there after. I really appreciated his time and work, and his determination to get the job done.

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.
