The power of the engine is basically derived from the efficiency of the combustion process. It also greatly affects the capability of the emission control system in transforming the toxic exhaust elements into less harmful gasses, and the ability of the vehicle to accelerate faster as well. Moreover, the amount of fuel ingested by the engine for the combustion tells how economic the engine is, when it comes to fuel consumption as it operates. Significantly, the amount of fuel injected into each cylinder, along with the oxygen content breathed in by the engine primarily affects the operation.

While the fuel delivery system of your Lincoln is equipped with the so called fuel injector which takes care of spraying exact amount of fuel into the combustion chamber, you'll find a Lincoln oxygen sensor along the exhaust pipes to deal with the oxygen content. This exhaust component is designed to read the amount of oxygen present in the exhaust gasses by producing voltage signal, and subsequently sends the data to the powertrain control module. The information provided by the oxygen sensor is where the control device will base the commands that it'll give the intake system in order to make adjustments in case necessary.

An oxygen sensor typically uses an element called zirconia to convert the status of the engine's air and fuel mixture into a voltage signal. The same voltage is produced by a titania oxygen sensor just by utilizing the technology of electrical resistance. There are two types of oxygen sensors that your Lincoln may use, the single wire oxygen sensor or O2S and the heated oxygen sensor or HO2S. They may come with built-in heater for warming up, and be set to the operating temperature quickly. Compared to older Lincoln versions which had one oxygen sensor, those that were released to the market since 1996 are equipped with OBD II or Onboard Diagnostics II, featuring two oxygen sensors, having one on the inlet of the catalytic converter and the other sensor on the outlet. However, units carrying dual exhaust systems may feature up to four oxygen sensors.

Your Lincoln oxygen sensor ideally needs to be replaced after every 100 thousand mikes of running, as necessary, or as the manual recommends. If you already need aftermarket oxygen sensors for your Lincoln, PartsTrain can readily provide your needs.
