Cars manufactured within the last twenty years rely a great deal on a grid of sensors which feed that information into an onboard computer. The computer takes that information and makes decisions such as lowering the idle, increasing oxygen intake and monitoring leanness of the engine. But when one of these sensors fail and they do fail the computer can’t work which often results in bad fuel consumption. You’ll have the same problem if one of the sensors are not genuine. So, its always good to make sure that the Sensor-Probe you buy is an OEM that’s meant for your vehicle. Plus, before you replace the sensor, the car should be examined to ensure that it is an only problem. You also need to find and eliminate the root cause of the sensor failure or the new one will fail too.
Replacing a Sensor-Probe can be a tedious process depending on what is being replaced. Sensors like the air intake or MAF sensor requires taking apart several parts just to reach the sensor. Though on the other hand, the oxygen sensor is easier to replace. Generally speaking, it is never a good idea to try and replace any sensor on your own because the slightest mistake can ruin it. Then there are several steps involved and so its best to have a professional do it. The other thing you need to bear in mind that at times it may not even be a sensor issue, to begin with, it may just be something else. At times merely cleaning the sensor can fix the problem. So, visiting a professional should always be the first thing you do as they will make sure that it is, in fact, a sensor related problem.
