Most vehicles produced after 1980 are equipped with oxygen sensors that measure the oxygen content of the vehicle's exhaust gases. This information aids the engine-control computer in regulating the mixture of air and fuel burned in the engine,providing an optimal balance of power, economy, and clean exhaust.Oxygen sensors are relatively easy and inexpensive to replace; however,some vehicle owners ignore the recommended replacement intervals in their owner's manuals because there is not a noticeable difference in the way the vehicle drives when the sensor stops functioning normally.Unfortunately, this is a false economy.The engine may use too much fuel as a result, as well as pollute the air needlessly. This hurts both the wallet and the environment.

If you can't remember the last time that you changed your oxygen ensor, you may be throwing money away at the gas pump. Let the ASE-certified technicians at our shop check your sensor and ensure that your car is running as efficiently as possible. You can also schedule the regular maintenance that will prevent your sensor from wearing out in the first place.
