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.
