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.

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.

O2 censor

You would use an oxygen censor socket to repair that. You can buy one for pretty cheap or you can rent one from the parts house. You'll want to disconnect the electrical connection to the O2 censor, slip the socket over it (using the appropriate ratchet) and take it off. You can also use a 7/8 inch wrench on most cars if you can get it in there.

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!
