Byers Airport Subaru: Available Oxygen Sensor Service

Read below to learn about the oxygen sensor in your car.

Maintaining optimal performance levels for your O2 sensors can help you avoid potential issues with your Subaru in the future. It’s crucial to know if fuel is being burned in the engine while you drive as a wide range of problems can occur if combustion happens. To help prevent this issue an oxygen sensor is utilized. The oxygen levels are measured in exhaust gasses, and the measurements are sending information to your engine’s ECU computer. The sensor also helps to adjust the air/fuel ratio in your engine to optimize the burn. One of the reasons that poor engine performance happens as a result of the O2 sensors malfunctioning or failing, which transmits incorrect information to the ECU. The recommendation to help protect your O2 sensors is to use fuel specifically designed for your vehicle, which will help to prevent carbon build-up and ensures the cleanest possible burn.

When Your O2 Sensor Doesn’t Get Replaced

Just like with anything else inside your ride, parts and accessories and even sensors need a repair or replacement overtime to keep functioning at peak levels. If you let a problem go for too long it can result in a bigger issue, which will ultimately end up costing you more in the end. If you notice your engine stalling, or a sluggish feel or rough driving whenever you try to head out on the road, this can be a result of your oxygen sensor going bad. When these issues arise you’ll end up with poor fuel economy, which costs you more MPG and means you’re polluting the areas you cruise even more than normal. If you don’t have the sensor checked out at all when you start noticing issues, and if it’s left for several months, this can cause damage to the catalytic converter and your engine, which makes the repairs significantly more expensive. Our expert Subaru technicians are always on hand to help, and can diagnose if there’s an issue with the sensor and get a replacement handled before catastrophe occurs if you stop in for a maintenance appointment. And if you do require a replacement, our technicians can get you taken care of in a timely manner.
