Exhaust sensors

Asked by May 31, 2013 at 09:32 AM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My PT Cruiser uses a lot of petrol. They say my sensors on the exhaust are dirty. Where
are these sensors, how do I remove them and how do I clean them?

2 Answers


To my knowledge oxygen sensors are working or not. I've never had to clean any personally. If they haven't been changed and are 10 yrs old now it would not be wasting your money to change them. To know if they are good or bad you need an engine scanner to watch them fluctuate. Good luck, J

Best Answer

The are located in the exhaust. You need a special wrench and some strength to remove, and like JWM mentioned, cleaning is not necessary.

    My 2006 Cruiser keeps having the O2 sensor turn on the engine light. Besides a loose gas cap what else could be causing this. It also is not getting very good gas mileage, only about 21mpg?
