Why Cooling System Repairs are More Complex On European Cars

Why Cooling System Repairs are More Complex On European Cars

  While European vehicles are known for being more complex and intricate, the cooling system is typically a tricky system to repair when it comes to European made cars. The cooling system is an important one because it helps to regulate the temperature of the engine and prevent it from overheating. In European model vehicles, the cooling system is typically tucked into a hard to find area or tight among other components. This makes it more difficult to actually take apart and repair the system.  Additionally, many European vehicles have a remote reservoir to fill up the cooling system and the radiator is usually tucked behind the front grill of the chassis.

What is an Oxygen Sensor Replacement?

In order to understand what an oxygen sensor replacement is, it is important to understand what exactly the oxygen sensor does and why it is important.  What is the job of your vehicle's oxygen sensor? The main purpose of a vehicle's oxygen sensor is to better manage the engine's operation. Some vehicles actually have more than one. One sensor is usually connected to the exhaust pipe and is used to measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system. Whether the gas measured is high in oxygen content or low, the amount of fuel that enters the engine is adjusted by your vehicle's computer system to maintain the correct mixture of fuel and oxygen to control emissions output.

The oxygen sensors are important to ensure that your vehicle meets emissions standards ... read more
