Finding an O2 Sensor:
Junior Cooper Morgan opens up the hood to find the sensor in the automotive shop, because there was an O2 sensor that had been complained about by the owner of the car.
“To fix a faulty oxygen sensor in a a car, first, use a diagnostic tool to find the damaged sensor. Then, lift the car safely, locate the sensor, and swap it out with a new one. Make sure to reset the car’s computer system after, for the new sensor to work correctly and this improves engine performance,” Cooper Morgan said. 
Morgan has been in automotive for three years so far, and has said he plans to do it for his senior year and pursue automotive engineering as his future career.
