Easy fix..

If your motor is running rich ( you can smell fuel in the exhuast)
Or its just running like a bag of spanners.
Replace the Lambda.
Not so easy to do due to it practicaly welding itself to the cat.



First up this is a lambda,

Next up open the bonnet.

At the back of the bulkhead find the wires that run down to-wards the lambda.
There is a connection block that you will need to split.

Pull the red tab out and separate the 2 parts

Looks like this when undone

I cant show you any pictures o this next bit as its impossible to take photos when your flat on your back with a car on youDry

You have to get under and locate the lambda, its to the rear of the subframe. At the front of the cat converter.

If you have disconnected the concter block CUT the plug off and grab a 22mm ring spanner.

Feed the wires through the RING end and Get a decent grip on the lambda and do your best Arnie impression to get the bugger off. You may need quite a bit of Wd4 and a scaffold tube.

Once off, replace with new one and tighten up.

Plug in and yer doneBig grin

Go for a blast and watch your wallet become fat again

The problem they suffer is they get coked in soot.
Mine was knackered

The probe has small slits in to allow the gases to Roam over the senser.
These get clogged with soot and hamper the performance of the lambdaSad
