How do you know if you have a starter motor problem? There are several tell-tale signs. If you turn the key or press the ignition button, and you hear a rapid clicking sound but the engine doesn’t turn over, it could be a sign of a faulty starter motor. If there is no response at all (i.e. the car won’t start), that could be too, if you have already ruled out a dead battery.
In severe cases of starter motor failure, you may notice smoke coming from under the hood or a burning smell. In this case please contact an automotive electrician to service your car immediately.

Oxygen Sensors (Lambda Sensors)
The primary function of oxygen sensors (or lambda sensors) is to monitor the level of oxygen in the exhaust gases and provide real-time feedback to the engine control unit (ECU). Based on this feedback, the air-fuel mixture that passes into the engine is adjusted to ensure optimal combustion. Ensuring your air-fuel mixture is at the ideal ratio not only improves fuel efficiency it also helps to reduce harmful emissions, contributing to more environmentally friendly and efficient vehicle operation.
Over time, oxygen sensors may degrade or become contaminated, leading to less accurate readings. When this happens, the engine’s performance and fuel efficiency can suffer. The best way to stay on top of it, is with regular vehicle servicing and if a dash light comes on, make sure you bring it in for inspection.
