How often do i change oxygen sensor

1 Answer

You change the Front or Upstream Oxygen Sensors
every 100,000 miles or sooner, if they fail or slow down,
on ALL Vehicles

The Rear Sensors can stay until they fail

Doubt the Cylinder Misfires are from the O2 Sensors

You have to look at the reason for & correct the misfires

You should have a steady or flashing dash light on

If so, stop using it before you ruin the converter & get
it diagnosed & ALL Vehicle problems resolved at one time

Why does engine run great when first crank them misfire when warms up 2001 tundra v8

this could be:

1. EGR valve

2. Vacuum leak

3. MAF sensor

4. Oxygen sensors

5 Idle air control

6. Ignition components.

7. Valve seats

Start with vacuum leaks and check all the hoses and connections. If the oxygen sensors have never been changed, you should do that. They are like light bulbs and they burn out. The other things are to check the MAF sensor to see if it is clean, Same with the idle air motor and then check the valves etc with a cylinder leak down test.

2001 buick lasabre rmp revs up and down then stalls out

There is a common misconception that a CODE READ and a DIAGNOSTIC TEST are one and the same.. They are most certainly NOT!
The first thing to have done is to verify that the engine has a misfire or not. Then if the misfire is present, determine what is the cause of the misfire. A misfire in and of itself will not cause n oxygen sensor to "burn out". However if the oxygen sensor is bad, it will cause a performance problem and also cause an idle issue. What needs to be done is to connect the vehicle to a scanner and observe the data when the problem is happening. That way you can know what the fuel mixture is and whether of not the oxygen sensors are working properly.
Unfortunately, there is a lot more to engine performance diagnostics than just a code reading.

1995 dodge neon cuts out during normal driving runs at full throttle

hi I assume this is a fuel injection vehicle and if so it sounds a lot like you have a throttle body problem or throttle sensor problem ,have you also checked that the fuel filter is not blocked,remove the fuel filter and blow thru it in the direction of flow and if your cheeks blow up while blowing thru the filter it is blocked or restricted -replace.
hope that helps .

This could be a bad ground on the ECM. When it is in park it is open loop. When you put it in gear, the ecm goes closed loop with the oxygen sensors and with no ground it dies.

sounds like an electrical problem, the cheapest thing to check is the lambda sensor, which is located on the exhaust. this senses how much oxygen is in the exhaust gases, and tells the ecu to change the fuel to air ratio.

hope this helps.
