Chevrolet Equinox Oxygen Sensor
About Oxygen Sensor
The engine relies on many sensor readings to keep the engine in optimal operating conditions and maximizing efficiency and performance. One of the most important sensors in your vehicle is the oxygen sensor. It is commonly called O2 or lambda sensor and is responsible for determining the amount of oxygen present in the exhaust gases that leave the engine. The presence of oxygen in the gases can tell how much fuel is needed for stoichiometric combustion or how much fuel is being wasted. A high amount of oxygen indicates a lean fuel-air mixture, and the ECU increases the amount of fuel supplied. Conversely, a low amount of oxygen indicates a rich fuel-air mixture, and the ECU reduces fuel supply. This is a continuous process that ensures the engine is always running efficiently, decreases fuel consumption, and regulates emissions.
The O2 sensor is necessary for maintaining efficient engine performance. By ensuring that the right amount of fuel is being supplied at any given moment, we can reduce fuel consumption dramatically. Maintaining a correct and stoichiometric fuel-air mixture will produce fewer emissions. Modern vehicles have more than one O2 sensor and some cars even have up to 4. The first O2 sensor is placed after the exhaust manifold, and the second is placed after the catalytic converter. The oxygen sensor is also used to determine whether the catalytic converter is working properly by sensing the amount of oxygen left after gases have passed through the converter and comparing the values against the reading from the first O2 sensor.
