Garden Grove Oxygen Sensor Repair
The oxygen sensor is a vital component in a vehicle’s exhaust system, but many Garden Grove drivers may not be aware of its significance in keeping their car performing safely and efficiently. It has a direct impact on emissions, and a faulty sensor can affect not just the engine, but the environment as well.
When an oxygen sensor fails, it can trigger the “check engine” light and reduce fuel economy. This sensor, which is the size of a spark plug, has a lifespan of 35,000 to 50,000 miles.
Most vehicles have at least one oxygen sensor in their exhaust system, which measures the difference in oxygen levels between the exhaust gas and outside air. It then sends a voltage signal to the car’s computer, which adjusts the air-fuel mixture to optimize engine performance.
If the sensor is not working correctly, it can lead to an increase in emissions and poor fuel efficiency. The engine may also default to a predetermined air-fuel mixture, resulting in either too rich or too lean a mixture, causing stuttering or loss of power. This can create deposits in the engine and cause damage to other components such as the catalytic converter, leading to bigger problems down the road.
However, drivers in Garden Grove can rest easy knowing that Orozco’s Auto Service has the diagnostic tools to detect a faulty oxygen sensor. Their certified ASE technicians can replace it quickly and get drivers back on the road with a properly functioning engine that has optimized fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
