My repair guy noticed my flex fuel sensor was nicked during a routine oil change. Wants to fix for $900, also referred to it as "octane" sensor. No warning lights or problems with truck.

Asked by Aug 28, 2014 at 09:30 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just want to make sure flex fuel and octane sensors are one in the same. Does it need
to be replaced?
