Hi.I could do with a little advice,i had my engine warning light came on so i found a garage with the correct gear to read the computer faults,after emptying my wallet they informed me that i had two of four oxygen sensors faulty,as i always get the faults repaired asap i asked for a quote but when they said £300.00 i thought that it was a bit pricey,i can not check them or get near to the problem as i am now disabled so i am reliant on garages being honest,would anyone have a clue if this sounds right,this is not a main dealer i think, because i am a ex forces  i tend to trust to quickly,thanks for any help.the said these were i think Wide range oxygen sensors?

Hi Paul,

 

Did the garage give you the codes when they scanned your car?

 

You can buy an OBD2 code scanner for around £25.  I found that cheaper than asking a Jaguar main dealer to scan it as they charge £69 for half an hour.

 

I will see if there is a better price for these sensors.

 

Regards

 

Peter.

Hello Peter,They seemed to keep the codes close to their chest,i will go down and see them and see if they will pass them on to me i did pay for them,i will look into a code reader for my self,i dont have a problem paying for the job it just seemed very high for that type of job,thanks for you help.

Hi Paul,

 

I have a had a check of the main dealer price of a sensor and it is around £95.  

 

Bay offer them at around £45.

 

If you had a local mechanic who would fit them eBay MIGHT be the best route.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Two sensors new are a few quid, depending which of them has gone they can be a bit of a pig to get to, I have good second hand sensors if you can find out which ones have gone, There are two different types, Up and down stream. Purely as an example I could supply and fit two good second hand for £130

Thats a great help and i will probably take you up on that if i can get the full details,i will see him tomorrow,the bill he gave me just said two wide range sensors,thats what made me think,i will put the code details up on here it could help someone else with the same fault codes,like Peter said thats seem a very fair price,can you let me know your location and we can sort out a visit,

Well I'm not one to take the Michael, Money is hard earned these days, I try to treat people the way I would like to be treated, Seems to get me through.... :)

I worked in Yorkshire for 12 years in the seventies an early eighties.  Even though I am a Lancashireman, and took a bit of joshing for that, I enjoyed working with good, honest and helpful people.

 

Very helpful, Mark.

Just had a thought, It would be very unusual for two sensors to fail at once, Are you sure these guys aren't trying to pull your pants down? And yes I have a code reader that will tell me which sensors it is.

Ok,there might be more truth in that statement than you think,there"s been quiet a few unanswered question that are gentle left and moved on to another planet,ive just spoke to them again and the bloke who answered the phone even thought it was odd that the fault codes were not recorded on the bill,only wide band sensors failed,also the garage gentleman said i might have to bring the car back to do it again,to which i said have a got to pay again?to which i was told he might have written it down somewhere,i am a bit concerned now that the other jobs were carried out,gear box,brake fluids changed,drain and flush the coolant,it might be easier if i go up to Mark in Leeds and take up his offer,

Hi Paul

I got your PM thanks, I am helping out a mate at the moment doing long nights and have just got up from the first one.... I will give you a ring when I get a minute, Could well be next week before I will have the time to sort your car out for you.

Further to this sensor episode at last we have some information,it would appear that the sensor which have been in question are-Bank 1 sensor 1 and bank one sensor 2,but just to throw a spanner in the works,as far as i can remember i was told that when i had a twin sports exhaust fitted that this would do this,there is no drop in performance i had it up to 110 mph the other day with much more left.any ideas or change them and suck it and see?
