Research on Oxygen Sensor for Hyundai Sonata
Today's motor vehicle is definitely not your great-grandfather's Ford Model T, your grandfather's Packard or even your father's Chevy Nova. Today's cars are high-tech machines that have many equally high-tech components that keep them going - many of which were not even imagined a decade ago. Gasoline and diesel engines are fueled by refined petroleum products, and if the exhaust fumes are not going to choke us all out of existence, the mixture of liquid fuel and air must be carefully calibrated. One of the components that works with the exhaust system to keep pollutants out of the atmosphere is the O2 sensor. Hyundai Sonata models, like most vehicles today, have more than one of these. A faulty O2 sensor can cause that annoying "check engine" light to illuminate. It's not a serious problem and it can be easily corrected, but if it allowed to continue, your engine's power and performance will suffer - and chances are, your vehicle will not pass an emissions inspection.
What The Heck Does an O2 Sensor Do, Anyway?
Basically, an O2 sensor is a monitoring device. It measures the ratio of air to fuel in the mixture, and sends data to the PCM ("powertrain control module," your car's central computer) on whether your engine is running "rich" (more liquid fuel) or "lean" (more air). When the engine is cold, it's a good idea to have a "rich" mixture (this is what the old choke lever was for, back in the day), but once it was warmed up to operating temperature, it is important to make the mixture lean. (The exception is when more power is required, such as hard acceleration or climbing a hill). These days, O2 sensors are heated, and are able to measure the fuel mixture much earlier in the running process. When those O2 sensors aren't working properly, the results will be high fuel consumption and loss of power.
When Good O2 Sensors Go Bad
One of the early symptoms of a failing O2 sensor is poor fuel economy. The Check Engine light may also illuminate, and your car probably won't pass an emissions inspection. If you have the right equipment (such as a high-impedance voltmeter) and know what you are doing, you can test your O2 sensors yourself. If you aren't sure about how to go about this however, it is best to leave it to a trusted professional.
How to Replace O2 Sensor
Hyundai Sonata models have multiple O2 sensors. You'll need to know the Hyundai Sonata oxygen sensor location and learn the answer to this question: how many O2 sensors does a 2006 Hyundai Sonata have (or whatever year your particular vehicle is). There are many resources online, including videos, that can help you to learn how to replace this important component.
A Better Deal On O2 Sensors - And Other Stuff
