This is the third time that I've had Chris work on my car, and every time he's saved me a ton of money, was on-time, or early, and was super fast. I've recommended him to my mom, and he saved her a bunch of money too. I recommend him to anyone who needs work done. He doesn't waste time and he gets the job done with what is obvious years of experience.

1. YourMechanic rescheduled my appointment because the parts were not available in time. That should have been determined before scheduling. 2. Wrong parts ordered and given to mechanic. Result: Couldn't fix bad motor mounts without rescheduling for a 3rd time.

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.
