Oxygen sensors, also known as lambda sensors, measure the amount of oxygen in your vehicle’s fuel/oxygen mixture. Consequently, these sensors need to be working properly for your vehicle to maintain a balanced mixture and continue operating at full capacity.
Your check engine light should come on when your vehicle is in need of a new oxygen sensor. However, there are other signs you can keep an eye out for.
4 Signs Your Oxygen Sensor May Be Bad
- Sudden Decrease in Fuel Mileage – A defective O2 sensor will likely cause your air-fuel mixture to be too rich. This will directly affect your fuel economy.
- Failure to Pass Smog – According to the EPA and CARP, 50-60% of all smog test/emission test related failures are attributed to defective oxygen sensors. Your vehicle will display either low or high CO emissions.
- Poor Vehicle Performance – You will experience rough idling, stalling, hesitation on acceleration, or other vehicle performance issues.
- OBDII Code Checker – This is the most accurate way to diagnose if you need a new oxygen sensor. An OBDII Code Checker identifies defects in the exhaust system of your car, truck, or SUV. If your oxygen sensor has failed, the code checker will generate a diagnostic trouble code that specifically indicates your oxygen sensor is bad.
