Research on Oxygen Sensor for Chevrolet Tracker
The amount of oxygen in the exhaust tells the engine computer many things. That's why having a working oxygen sensor is so important. If it fails, then there can be unwanted changes in how your vehicle rides, as failure can affect anything from engine timing to fuel injection. The consequences therefore go far beyond just emissions control and whether your Chevy Tracker passes an emissions test or not. It's not uncommon for O2 sensors to fail over time because of the operating conditions they exist in. Replacements can be a few hundred dollars but you don't always have to spend top dollar on a quality sensor that will bring your ride up to speed.
Failed Oxygen Sensor Symptoms
The Check Engine light is often the first signs of a problem. Although it can mean many things when you see the light, the oxygen sensor is one of the most common reasons. A faulty O2 sensor will affect fuel delivery, injection, and combustion so the changes in the air/fuel ratio will cause more fuel to burn than needed, driving down gas mileage. If the engine is idling roughly or misfiring, there may be a problem at the 2002 Chevy Tracker O2 sensor location, or the vehicle may run abnormally while in motion. Any of these symptoms are noticeable so you can go to the mechanic and possibly fix the problem by replacing, for example, a 2001 Chevy Tracker O2 sensor, before other systems are affected.
Where Is the Oxygen Sensor Located?
There is usually an O2 sensor by the exhaust manifold or before the catalytic converter, although some vehicles have multiple sensors. Exposure to hot exhaust gases enables the sensor to function and generate the voltage needed to indicate the quality of the fuel mixture. Oxygen sensors have gotten more durable over time. If you purchase a vehicle less than 15 years ago, you may get 60,000 to 90,000 miles out of it.
History of the Oxygen Sensor
The lambda sensor was developed by Dr. Gunter Bauman in the late 1960s. The original ceramic coated zirconia and platinum sensors were redesigned as planar O2 sensors for mass production. There's one in every car built after 1980 and an even more modernized version was introduced in 1990. A part at the 2003 Chevy Tracker O2 sensor location helps maintain the ideal oxygen to gasoline ratio of 14.7:1, but the amount of oxygen in the engine can vary depending on air or engine temperature, altitude, barometric pressure, and load. The sensor helps maintain a proper ratio in all conditions.
If you need a new 2004 Chevy Tracker O2 sensor, expect to spend $225 to $393. Labor is generally not that much, so most of your bill should go to the part.
