SOURCE: how to replace front lambda sensor

The oxygen sensor, (also called the lambda sensor), is right after the exhaust manifold, which is on the back side of the engine, so you need to reach it from underneath.
However, it is expensive, so you may want to take it out carefully and simply have it checked first.
With an ohmmeter you can tell if it is burned out.
0 or infinite ohms is bad.
I believe it should be around 1500 ohms, but don't remember exactly.
The other thing is deposits like carbon can make it ineffective, and can be cleaned sometimes.

If you put a new one in, a little antizsieze is a good idea, but don't put on much, because you don't want to contaminate the sensor. Just enough to make removal easier. Remove and clean it every year.

Garage says my w reg golf gti is running rich,they say its because i only have 1 lambda sensor on,should my car have 2 on


didnt know that the earlier golfs had two lambda sensors,but that said,if there are supposed to be two,then there will be one before the catalytic convertor (pre-cat)and then one after,if the car has had the exhaust changed by a previous owner,then this maybe the issue,you need to get it checked out because this is an MOT faliure item,i.e emissions too high/hydrocarbons too high.seems the cheapest way to solve this is by fitting the correct exhaust unfortunately.hope this helps

Can you tell me what a lambda sencer does and how does it affect the engine,as my engine light comes on but dosent stay on but when on reduces power.thank you it is a vauxhall astra club 2000 16v did not...


Not sure, but I believe the lambda sensor is the feedback sensor, to determine if the mixture really is right.
On most cars that is the oxygen sensor I believe, and is located in the exhaust manifold or the top of the exhaust pipe.
