lambda sensor gone

My engine management light has been on for a while. I only nothiced the car was poorly more recently, with an increasingly bad loss of power and hesitation above 3500 revs. Diagnostic at the doc says its the third of THREE lamda sensors (this was news to me, apparently there are two, one at each of two cats just after the exhaust manifold, and then another one after the third cat).

The good doctor says the other two are oscillating nicely but the third one is dead to the world. No news yet on costs. but it will be so good to get the old zing back

Re: lambda sensor gone

you can probably use a generic sensor if you know the type and splice the proper cable on to it....

Wave Re: lambda sensor gone

In addition to the lambda sensor change, which improved things a lot, I have now had the MAF changed - the old shark has now finally gotten its bite back. Mechanic said he had changed both in another car at the same time some weeks before with similar results.
