Need help regarding Suzuki Liana RXi 2008 Oxygen Sensor
I am new to this forum and I need help regarding the O2 sensor of Liana.
Last kuch dino achanak se meri Liana men yellow check engine light aana start ho gyaee hay, although the car seems to be running just fine. I took it to a local mechanic near my home, and he after checking it with a scanner told me that its O2 Sensor is malfunctioning and needs to be changed.
He advised me to take it to the Suzuki Dealership, saying kay Wahin le jaayen wahin se lagwana behtar hay.
I went to Suzuki IG Motors (near my home, F.B. Area) and they told me that the price of O2 Sensor is Rs. 18,200 with the separate fitting charges of Rs. 1000
I want to know if yahan kisi ne apni Liana men O2 Sensor change karwaya hay? If yes, to kahan se karwaya and kia expense aaya?
Kia O2 sensor ki price itni hi hay, ya ye price Suzuki Dealership par itni hay?
Is this available on local auto parts shops?
What are your recommendations? Men locally kahin se purchase kar kay Suzuki Mechanic se install karwa lu, ya phir Suzuki se hi purchase kar kay lagwana behtar hay?
My Liana is 2008 RXi Patrol (Non CNG). Kindly help me on this issue.

I reconditioned my car's oxygen sensor by soaking it overnight in Apple Cider Vinegar (common kitchen vinegar would also do the job just as effectively). Soak it overnight. Then in the morning, scrub it good with a tooth brush paying special attention to inside the holes, followed up by blasting through the holes with Nasa carb cleaner. Dry the sensor in sunlight before putting it back. However if your sensor's heater element is damaged, you'll have to get a new one. You can test it with a simple multimeter. The resistance between both black wires should be between 5 to 8 ohms at room temperature. If it's a short circuit or an open circuit, time to get a new sensor.
