Oxygen Sensor


Long Beach, Bixby Knolls Oxygen Sensor Repair


The importance of the oxygen sensor in a vehicle’s exhaust system cannot be overstated as it affects emissions and the environment. Regrettably, many drivers in Long Beach, Bixby Knolls do not fully comprehend its significance.

This sensor, which is about the size of a spark plug, typically lasts between 35,000 to 50,000 miles and can cause the “check engine” light to turn on and decrease fuel efficiency if it fails.

Almost all vehicles have at least one oxygen sensor that measures the difference in oxygen levels between the exhaust gas and outside air. It then sends a voltage signal to the vehicle’s computer, which adjusts the air-fuel mixture to optimize engine performance.

If the sensor malfunctions, it can lead to increased emissions, poor fuel efficiency, and engine deposits. It may even damage other components such as the catalytic converter, resulting in more severe issues in the future.

Thankfully, Orozco’s Auto Service in Long Beach, Bixby Knolls employs certified ASE technicians who are equipped with diagnostic tools to promptly detect and replace faulty oxygen sensors. Keeping vehicles well-maintained and ensuring the oxygen sensor functions properly can aid drivers in optimizing fuel efficiency, reducing emissions, and protecting the environment while also improving air quality for everyone.
