Faults of lambda probe
  • mechanical breakdowns;
  • thermal overload due to misfires;
  • separation of connection circuits;
  • closure;
  • clogging with fuel combustion products.
Symptoms of lambda probe failure
  • increase in exhaust emissions;
  • increase in fuel consumption;
  • unstable idling;
  • reduction in vehicle dynamics;
  • breakdown of the catalyst;
  • car jerks even if the engine is warmed up.
Causes of lambda probe faults
  • brake fluid and antifreeze getting to the part;
  • poor state of oil rings;
  • сleaning lambda probe housing with chemically active substances;
  • exposure to the concentrated air-fuel mixture;
  • increased concentration of lead compounds in fuel;
  • clogging of the fuel filter;
  • leakage of the lambda probe housing;
  • ingress of air or the exhaust gases;
  • improper or interrupted power supply, which leads to the main control unit;
  • oxygen sensor elements overheating due to poor quality of the fuel mixture;
  • worn-out state of the part.
Diagnostics

In order to diagnose the lambda probe state, start the engine and warm it. The level of residual oxygen in the exhaust gas is displayed correctly at 300-400 °C. Use the oscilloscope to assess the frequency and waveform. The next step is to identify indicators of the part heater resistance at room temperature (the norm is from 2 to 14 ohms). Now check the voltage of the heater with the ignition on (the required indicator is 10.5). We remind you that lambda probe inspection is necessary every 30 thousand kilometers.

Repair and replacement of lambda probe

The only kind of repair work that is relevant to this item, is cleaning the sensor from contamination with fuel combustion products. To remove the oxygen sensor, heat it to 50 ° C. For cleaning experts recommend the use of phosphoric acid. Soak the item for 15-20 minutes in acid, then rinse it with clean water. Dry the item, check the thread, then be sure to use mounting paste. At the same time, make sure that the paste does not touch the part’s protection tube. The connector, through which the oxygen is supplied should not be processed. If the cleaning process has not given the expected results, there is only replacement option. You can replace the defective part by yourself or refer to specialists.
