Q: Will replacing your O2 sensor stop your car from vibrating at a stop?

asked by on

I just replaced my O2 sensor bank 1. Will it stop my car from vibrating at a stop?

My car has 219000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there, thanks for writing in. The replacement of the O2 sensor might help reduce engine vibrations, but if you’re feeling the shaking in the steering wheel when you slow down, it’s most likely contributed to damaged brakes, wheel bearings, or other front end components.
