How to Tell When Your O2 Sensor Has Gone Bad

To avoid potential issues with your Subaru in the future, it’s essential to maintain the optimal performance level of the O2 sensors. Knowing whether fuel is being burned in the engine while driving is crucial. If fuel combustion occurs, it can lead to a wide range of problems. However, the use of an oxygen sensor can prevent the problem from occurring. The sensor measures the oxygen levels in the exhaust gasses and sends information back to the engine’s ECU computer. Additionally, the sensor can adjust the air/fuel ratio as needed to optimize the burn. When the O2 sensors malfunction or fail, incorrect information is transmitted to the ECU, which can result in poor engine performance. To protect your O2 sensors, it’s recommended to use fuel specifically designed for your vehicle. This helps prevent carbon build-up and ensures the cleaned burn possible.

What Happens When the O2 Sensor Isn’t Replaced?

Just as with any vehicle, when you ignore a problem for too long, it can not only cause other issues within the vehicle, but can end up costing you much more in the end. A bad oxygen sensor can cause sluggish and rough driving as well as causing the engine to stall. You’ll also end up with poor fuel economy and start polluting the areas you’re driving. Leaving the O2 sensor unchecked for several months can lead to serious issues with the catalytic converter and the engine, which can skyrocket your repair bill into the thousands of dollars. Our expert technicians are always on hand at our service center and are always happy to inspect your O2 sensor to make sure it’s running in prime condition. If it needs replaced, they can get it done lickety-split and have you back on the road in no time.
