Question about 1985 Volkswagen agon
The lambda sensor is located in the exhaust. There are 2, 1 before the catalytic convertor and 1 after. The lambda sensor senses how much oxygen is in the exhaust gases and continually adjusts the fuel/air mixture so that the oxygen level is correct. If the lambda sensor fails and senses the incorrect amount of oxygen it may adjust the fuel/air mixture so that the engine doesnt run properly.

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.
