    W124 o2 sensor eha relationship

    In my never ending quest to get my car running right, could somebody confirm my ideas on the o2 sensor-EHA relationship Am i right in thinking that if the o2 sensor detects rich running, it will adjust the EHA via the ecu, and cause my cut out at warm temperature?, ive tested the sensor, and...

    I had a meter on the unit and the voltage swept from about 0.5volts to 4.5volts without any spikes, this is not the way to test though, as Graeme pointed out to me. at closed throttle there should be resistance between pins 1 and 2 (closed switch), the old unit did not do this, I had assumed if...

    This is what i done, firstly i was worried when it was mentioned that the unit could have been damaged during a jump start (KE UNIT) so first thing this morning i tried another ke unit that i was lucky enough to have. the symptoms were the same, so i could rule out the ke unit. so i then tried...

    its as soon as it warms up, its not like a stall, it is so abrupt, but when you start it again its fine, like something is getting warm then making or breaking a contact but resetting itself after the ignition is turned
