Honda Oxygen Sensor
Genuine Honda Oxygen Sensors in San Antonio
As a Honda driver, you expect a lot out of your vehicle. Your car, truck, van, or SUV was designed to deliver high-performance and reliability for a LOT of miles. But to keep things running as they should, you are responsible for the regular upkeep of your vehicle. Certain services must be performed, and certain parts must be replaced over time.
That’s why at Fiesta Honda, we make it easy for our customers to get the services and products they need.
If it’s time to replace your vehicle’s oxygen sensors, also known as lambda sensors, you can shop in person at our onsite parts department or order online by submitting a parts request form on our website.
But how do you know when your vehicle requires a new oxygen sensor?
Typically, your check-engine light will come on. However, there are other signs to alert you when your oxygen sensor may be failing.
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 Honda will display either low or high CO emissions. Help keep the Texas hill country beautiful!
- Poor Vehicle Performance – Your Honda is 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.
If you are unsure whether or not your oxygen sensor needs to be replaced, our service team is readily available to inspect your vehicle and help you determine the proper course of action for your situation.
