lambda sensor

  1. Small/Medium Vauxhall Cars Area
    Hi we have a Corsa which has failed amongst other things, on the exhaust emissions. I think that it maybe wasn't at correct operating temperature when it was tested, but any other ideas that could cure it would be greatly appreciated. I have attached the print out for info. Cheers Derek

    Hello! I ran a test yesterday on my Corsa D SXi 1.2 16v and got these error codes back. The engine light has been on for a few weeks which I was told was my o2 lambda sensor but it initially didn't cause any noticable issues when driving. However, my car now has a juddery idle and lack of power...

    Hi, I'm new to the group. I have a 2004 Vauxhall Corsa Energy 1.0 and yesterday evening the emissions light came on. I plan on taking it for a diagnostics run at lunch, but I have manually obtained the fault code P0420. I'm hoping it's the sensor playing up and that the diagnostics will wipe it...

    mechanic changed my lambda sensor today in 2008 corsa 1.2. He didn't have a split socket so cut the wires and then rejoined them after fitting. Is this a normal thing to do or could it create problems ?
