The O2 sensors in your Bronco monitor the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gases and adjust the air-fuel mixture accordingly. They can become damaged or dirty over time, resulting in poor fuel economy and decreased engine performance. Luckily, replacing O2 sensors is somewhat easy to do in minutes. Consider these factors while you shop.

Location & Type of O2 Sensor

Know the location of the oxygen sensor you want to change. For 4-cylinder engines, you'll have only Bank 1 O2 sensors, while the V6 engines will have Bank 2 O2 sensors opposite the Bank 1 sensors. The upstream and downstream O2 sensors are also available, each charged with a peculiar responsibility. Know whether your engine needs a narrowband or a wideband O2 sensor, and replace the exact sensor accordingly.

Should I replace all my O2 sensors at once? 

While it is advisable to change all the O2 sensors at once, you can get away with replacing just the faulty ones. By doing this, you save some money but know that the other sensors will also need replacement in the nearest future.

How often should O2 sensors be replaced?

With time, the O2 sensors get covered with oil, carbon, and lead deposits, affecting their readings. You should replace your O2 sensors every 30,000 to 50,000 miles depending on your driving habits or as specified in your Bronco’s manual.

What are some symptoms of a bad O2 sensor? 

  1. The check engine light comes on, and there's a drop in power.

  2. You notice decreased fuel economy.

  3. The engine is running rough and stalling.

Wrapping Up

O2 sensors are undeniably essential for your engine. You may get away with driving without one, but this will wear out your engine quickly. If you notice any of the above symptoms on your Bronco, scan it. Feel free to browse through and shop our high-quality Ford Bronco O2 sensors.
