I have a problem with my 3sfse D4 engine its starting but its not running does the oxygen censor cause it not to run??

Dear Anonymous, I do not understand what you mean when you say "engine its starting but its not running" However I will attempt to answer question anyway as I have seen your questions popping up on fixya. No oxygen sensor does not usually keep your vehicle from running although it could make it run very poorly by telling engine management to dump to much fuel in cylinder or not enough to sustain combustion.

I have changed both oxygen sensor and spacer also the coolant tempature sensor and the check engine light is still on in my 2005 Audi Quattro 1.8t what else could be wrong?

P0420 means that the catalytic converter is operating below efficiency threshold. Normally, you only get this code if both O2 sensors ARE OPERATING PROPERLY. If you change the O2 sensors and still get the same code, it's an indication your catalytic converter needs to be replaced. But before you replace it, ensure that everything else in the engine is operating properly, so that whatever may have damaged your current catalytic converter doesn't damage a new one.

My 95 Windstar idles very roughly. It starts just fine but after about 4 to 5 minutes it starts idling roughly. I put a new air filter in but that didn't do anything.

Hi, Try to replace fuel filter. It maybe clogged up and making engine run rough or poor. Also check and replace spark plugs. A bad spark plug will make it run rough too. Good luck.

I have to replace the downstream oxygen sensor. A

The location for these types of sensors varies from vehicle to vehicle.

Odds are your manual won't tell you.

Get a Haynes or Chilton manual (free at most libraries) for your make , model and year.

The location, plus changeout info will be in it.

Oxygen Censor

The thermostat will not harm the sensor, but the entire engine control system is designed to operate at 210 degrees, therefore all sensors will not recieve proper information,,,end result may be improper mixture in the exhaust pipe, triggering o2 sensor fault reading!
