HI ALL THERE:

I HAVE CHANGED MY LAMBDA SENSOR WHEN THE BABE HAD RUN 15.000 MILES BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS THE CAUSE OF MY LARGE FUEL CONSUMPTION.
NOW, WITH 3.500 MILES MORE IT FAILED AGAIN !!
I FITTED THE ORIGINAL BOSCH SPARE AND IT FAILED WITH 3.500 MILES OF USE.
ANYONE KNOWS HOW IS IT POSSIBLY. (COST IN MY COUNTRY U$S 150 !!!!!
NOW, I´M AFRAID ABOUT HOW MUCH I CAN RUN WITH THE NEW ONE.
ANY EXPERIENCE ABOUT THIS TOPIC ?
REGARDS
JORGE :confused:

Hi Jorge
First thing to do is check the leads and connections going to and from the lambda. If thies are Ok then disconnect the battery for a while and see if this changes anything incl. fuel consumption.
If this is not the case, have an Alfa dealer check the ECU with their computer programme.
Good luck

Hi Jorge,
Make sure you get the new uprated Lambda sensor. Unfortunately I don't have the part number nearby.

Good Luck.

Hi Jorge,

I had a long running problem with a Lambda probe in my '96 V6. I replaced what I thought was a faulty one and it didn't help. I then wasted a lot of time and money looking for the fault elsewhere. Eventually, I tried yet another probe (cheap, aftermarket one this time). Instant fix. Better to drive, much better fuel consumption on a run. Just annoyed that the brand new Alfa/Bosch probe I fitted first was useless from day 1.

Good luck.

HI ALL THERE, IT SEEMS THAT I´M NOT THE ONLY MAN WITH LAMBDA PROBLEMS.
JACQUES, THE LAMBDA CODE FOR THE 16 VALVS. IS 60812717 BUT I´M NOW INTERESTED IN THE AFTERMARKET LAMBDA THAT PUT CHRIS BECAUSE I´M NOT GOING TO BURN U$S 150 MANY TIMES AGAIN.
DO YOU REMEMBER THE MAKE CHRIS ?
AND THE OTHER, ANYONE KNOWS SOME METHOD TO MEASURE THE LAMBDA TO SEE IF IT FAILED OR NOT ?
REGARDS
