What’s Wrong with My Car’s Oxygen Sensor – Vancouver Auto Repair

Has your check engine warning light come on recently? Although this light can send off alarm bells to many drivers, in most cases this warning light is usually not serious. The check engine light can come on for several reasons, but one of the most common causes is a problem with an oxygen (O2) sensor.   Your O2 sensor, which is located in your tailpipe, determines how much oxygen is in your exhaust and sends that information directly to the main computer chip in your car. When an O2 sensor goes bad, it causes the check engine warning light to come on. The light won’t turn off until you replace the O2 sensor.   Most vehicles have more than one O2 sensor. When you get this warning light, you need to use a diagnostic tool to determine which sensor is faulty. So, if your check engine light has come on recently, then you should bring ... read more
