How Much Does an Oxygen Sensor Cost?

 

All modern cars have an emissions control system which includes an oxygen sensor. What happens if the oxygen sensor doesn’t function correctly? Your car engine will start to run inefficiently, more fuel is used up and more harmful emissions will be released. If the check engine light is blinking back at you, it could be time to replace the oxygen sensor. Just like any other car maintenance task, you should get it fixed as soon as possible. A faulty oxygen sensor will cause you to fail an emissions test.


Oxygen Sensor Labor and Part Costs


A brand new replacement oxygen sensor can cost you from $20 to $100, depending on the make and year of your car. Taking your car to a mechanic to fix the issue can cost up to $200. Though, this depends on the type of car and the rates of the mechanic.

 

You can actually save yourself the labor cost, by just buying the parts and replacing the sensor yourself. As long as you know where the sensor is located on your vehicle, then replacing it is not too difficult.

 

How to Save Money on an Oxygen Sensor?

 

Don’t make the mistake of buying a replacement sensor directly from a local shop or mechanic. Find out the exact manufacturer part number you need, and then search online to find much better prices.

 

Another way to save money is to not wait for the oxygen sensor to fail. Check its operation on a regular basis and replace it if efficiency has gone down. This can reduce your average fuel costs per year. Even more importantly, ignoring a faulty oxygen sensor can eventually damage the catalytic convertor which is very expensive to replace.
