    What brand did you use when replacing the 02 sensor?

    Lambda is just another name for the "O2 sensor" and it is probably a "generic" sensor... The OEM part # can be used by just about any parts supplier just as a "one size fits all" replacement... I would suggest a Chrysler OEM or a Bosch brand O2 sensor that Bosch crosses to...
    Lots of Chinese garbage when it comes to O2, MAF, and MAP sensors out there and even "if" it "fits" and "works" it may not be the correct one for your car...

    I used a Chinese MAF sensor in a 2008 Hyundai Tiburon 2.7L V6 TWICE and the engine ran poorly... I went to a local "pull-a-part" and grabbed and installed a used OEM sensor and then the car ran as it should... (it still is running on this part) Dave
