Car dies

The old car spluttered, juddered to a halt just off a major roundabout in Newbury. One quick call to the recovery people and we were home in just under an hour. As it was a Sunday there was nowhere open to take the car so it was taken home. After a quick session with a paperclip I’d got the error code from the engine management system. It looks like the oxygen sensor has failed. This is screwed into the exhaust just before the catalytic convertor and is used to help set the correct air/fuel mixture for the injectors.
Replacing the sensor may not be easy. Its fairly accessible, but also subjected to heat, wet and road muck so it may be a pig to unscrew. But that’s for another day. Currently the car is dumped outside the house unloved!
