    If your car is minimally 7 years old, it's time to change la.

    I bought the O2 sensor at the spare parts shop for RM80+ and the tool to replace the thing myself for RM20. DIY la. It's very easy and cheaper to do. Or buy the sensor and meet me up, I change for you

    first thing first....


    wira vdo is obd2 equipped car....means when the CEL coming on...best way to diagnose the fault is by scanning the error code using pdt....no guessing game....it would only wasting money......

    then after scanning only replace faulty part mentioned in error code

    That may be true, but sometimes the error code could be a coverup for something else that's causing the problem. Last time I had an idling issue and the PDT kept saying irregular idle voltage. Turns our my temp sensor wasn't connected. :banghead:

    Agree with bro.pomen, buy new sensors. Half cut ones may be even older or worn like your old ones....:rolleyes:

    I technically don't run a workshop la. I just do a lot of DIYs.

    I'm near Kajang. I doubt it's near for you
