There is really no voltage coming to the sensors. The sensors themselves are the ones that generate a small amount of current from the heat of the exhaust. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
Yes, it can affect the oxygen sensors and catalytic converter.Yes, it can affect the oxygen sensors and catalytic converter.
Problems with the oxygen sensors are quite likely to cause emissions test problems. The car computer cannot properly adjust the air/fuel mixture to regulate the emissions.
A bad oxygen sensor can cause power loss, reduced fuel economy and damage to your catalytic converter.
no it can't. usually when the oxygen sensors are failing, u get your check engine light on.
Oxygen sensors are located at the same place on all cars cause they all do the same thing: analyze your exhaust gas. It will be on the exhaust pipe, between the engine and the catalytic converter. thats good but there are 3 of them
Oxygen Sensor. Or the Knock Sensor. Or you could check the plugs for faults.
Two but the upper would be the one to cause problems
Oxygen sensors generally do not operate when "cold". Engine is in open loop mode while warming up. In additionl, oxygen sensors generally do not cause this kind of problem. I've read elsewhere that there is a sensor in the distributor that can get dirty and cause the symptoms you're experiencing. Sorry, don't have any links handy.
A: A photocell has the property to change resistance as photon hit its surface that cause a change in resistance with current is flowing a voltage is generated
yes it can. also check knock sensor and the wire going to it
All Oxygen Sensors are located in the exhaust eitherbefore or after the catalytic converter. Your O2 sensor may not be defective as a vacuum leak can cause the code.
I was told by my cousin who is an auto mechanic that dirty oxygen sensors would cause that problem. You can either replace them or you can wash them.
No. BAS (brake assist system) and ESP (electronic skip protection) are part of the antilock brake system. They have nothing to do with the oxygen sensors.No. BAS (brake assist system) and ESP (electronic skip protection) are part of the antilock brake system.

Not directly. The oxygen sensor measures oxygen levels in the exhaust. The computer uses that to calculate fuel and spark timing. If an oxygen sensor is malfunctioning, it could cause idle problems.Not directly. The oxygen sensor measures oxygen levels in the exhaust. The computer uses that to calculate fuel and spark timing.

I think the cause of ripple voltage would be from a bad ground or capacitve voltage.
you should never have to change your oxygen sensors. The only time you have to is if the PCM (powertrain control module) is not recieving any input from them. This would cause an MIL (engine light) to illuminate.
Yes it certainly could cause bad gas mileage especially if it is plugged up or if your car's oxygen sensors readings are faulty.
what sensors have you replaced?? i am assuming the oxygen sensors. i need a code number to tell you what is wrong. if its a p0420 its probabily the catalytic converter. mabye a p0141-mass air flow needs to be cleaned
All oxygen sensors are in the exhaust. They can either be before or after the catalytic convertor. Just because you have a code for an oxygen sensor does Not mean that it is defective. You can have a vacuum leak causing a lean code. You can also have a leaky injector that will cause a rich code.
As i found out on My Explorer, Bank 1 failure depends on the code being issued; If it is code PO171 orPO174, You have an issue with the oxygen sensors, due to moisture. Replace all oxygen sensors. I know, sounds expensive and it is, But vehicles depend on them for better fuel economy and proformance. Changing fuel filter, pcv valve and air filters may help but wont last. The mass air-flow sensor is also another item to keep clean since air-fuel mixture is determined by this equiptment.
Yes, a corroded battery can cause an intermittent voltage drop.
You can hose it with carborator spray, but be carefull, 'cause some brands of spray cleaner will hurt the oxygen sensors in the exhaust system.
No. It is illegal, and the oxygen sensors will not function properly. That will cause all sorts of driveabilty issues, low fuel economy is one.
A faulty EGR valve can cause a 98 Chevy to fail a smog test. The oxygen sensors should also be tested as they can also cause a 98 Chevy to fail a smog test.
It is the rated test voltage that will not cause insulation breakdown.
