Kia Sportage lambda sensor failure explained

Faulty sensors likely to cause the air/ fuel ratio problems, Blue Print reports

Kia Sportage lambda sensor failure explained

The Kia Sportage is known for its practical, spacious and economical style, alongside its competitors such as the Nissan Qashqai.

The lambda sensor – also known as an ‘oxygen sensor’ – operates by monitoring and measuring the quantity of oxygen in the exhaust.

Improving the efficiency of the combustion engine, the lambda sensor determines the levels of oxygen and sends the information in data format to the ECU.

Referring to the common Sportage failure, a Blue Print spokesperson said: “A sudden increase in fuel consumption, misfiring, or the engine experiencing a rough idle are common signs of lambda sensor failure.

“If the sensor is faulty, it is likely to cause the air/ fuel ratio to become imbalanced, affecting fuel economy.

“Another symptom of failure is when the engine light appears lit on the dashboard.”

Blue Print offers over 580 lambda sensors for a variety of applications.

The brand also offers a range of over 420 components to fit the Kia Sportage, varying from filtration to clutch.

Each part supplied by Blue Print is manufactured to meet or exceed OE standards, offering longevity and optimal performance with high-quality.
