Lambda sensor

Post by Razersauber » Tue Jan 10, 2017 11:09 pm

Hey guys, I had my car diagnosed recently because it was going through all the fuel in England every week and the only fault that came up was the irregularity that the exhaust temperature before the CAT was -0.01 degrees and was told this was a lambda sensor problem. Fair enough, I had a look on Euro Car Parts who want to relieve me of over £400?! Is this right? I couldn't even tell what the picture was on Euro car Parts was but it was quite square and didn't look like and lambda sensor I've ever seen! I have a 120D on the M47TU2D20 ABC B&Q GCSE (Or something!) engine in there. Any advice? I'm popping to a garage tomorrow to have a look to see what he'll charge me so I pray it's less than that! I'm thinking of getting rid shortly and wouldn't really bother getting it fixed but it's costing me an arm and a leg every week!

Hopefully you're already sorted, but £400 :shock:

More like £100, and I didnt look too hard, you can probably find cheaper.

E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.
