Oxygen Sensor on 156
I have a 2003 156 2.0 Lusso. Imagine my shock when yesterday the Motor Control message flashed up on the panel, the orange engine light came on, and I was accompanied by a friendly buzzing all the way to work !!!!!
Anyway one call to the RAC later, and a man came out with a laptop, plugged it in, and told me the warning was coming from the Oxygen Sensor. He did reset it, and since then (one hour drive to work) it hasn't alerted again.
Can someone help me with the following:-
1) What exactly is the oxygen sensor, what does it do.
2) The words 'Sensor' and 'Alfa' mean cost. I was seriously considering part ex'ing the car shortly. Does anyone know the worst case scenario cost ???
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
