FIXD App & FIXD Sensor

Recommended Posts

Has anyone use one of these before? I was gifted one and have not installed it yet, mainly the app because the connector is just a plug in. It's supposed to communicate car information to your phone via bluetooth. I am going to play with it and post results. Here's the website https://www.fixdapp.com/how_it_works

You can get it on Amazon for $59.99

These have been flooding the market in all different brands. As a DIYer it's pretty cool but a little more money and you can buy a scan tool. However, I'd be interested in how much value the app brings which would be the differentiation. Will it just tell you a code or can you see other data?

Here's an article about it https://www.tomsguide.com/us/fixd-car-sensor-faq,news-25213.html

This part is interesting...

Fixd Maintenance Club

To add a bit more value to owning a Fixd device, the company now offers a service called the Fixd Maintenance Club.

The premise behind the Fixd Maintenance Club is simple: you use the company's device to see what's wrong or when you need an oil change or new air filter, but then you head to the garage to have that work done. Instead, you can send your car information to Fixd and through its Maintenance Club, the company will send you the parts you need to do the work yourself.

Through its club, Fixd will send to you "specific maintenance items based on your upcoming maintenance interval," based on the year, make, and model of your car. 

Fixd's service lets you choose for yourself when your maintenance kit should ship, but you can customize when you get it and what's included in the box.

Being a member of the Fixd Maintenance Club is free, but the company does charge for the parts. Prices vary depending on the maintenance work and the parts you request.

      According to the annual CarMD® Vehicle Health Index one of the most common check engine light repairs is replacing the oxygen sensor. This relatively minor repair can be costly if neglected, leading to as much as 40 percent lower fuel efficiency, causing further damage to your vehicle’s exhaust system and adversely impacting the environment.
      “Vehicles with faulty oxygen sensors typically seem to drive and handle well, but the malfunction can dramatically decrease fuel efficiency and lead to costlier repairs if ignored,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “A faulty oxygen sensor means your vehicle is emitting more pollutants and if the check engine light is illuminated, it may not pass vehicle emissions testing in those states requiring it for vehicle registration.”
      A vehicle’s oxygen sensors are mounted in the exhaust system; they monitor the catalytic convertor’s operation and the level of oxygen in exhaust gases to maintain efficient engine operation. The best way to prevent an oxygen sensor failure is to follow a regular service schedule, including routine oil changes.
      Unlike the past nine years of the annual CarMD report, costly catalytic converter replacement edged out O2 sensor replacement as the most common check engine light repair. Catalytic converters do not typically fail unless maintenance and other repairs are ignored or the vehicle is older. Average vehicle age has increased from 10.6 years to 11.7 years over the past decade, contributing to this outcome.
      “It is important that car owners check the reason for an illuminated check engine light without delay and make necessary maintenance to avoid more costly repairs, like catalytic converter replacement, down the road,” said White. “If you find your vehicle needs service, call your trusted local repair shop as automotive repair is considered an essential service.”
      The Car Care Council’s popular Car Care Guide features helpful information about the check engine light. Available in English and Spanish, a free printed copy of the 80-page Car Care Guide can be ordered by visiting www.carcare.org/car-care-guide.
      The non-profit Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.

      I have a 2018 rogue with 48500 miles on it. The engine light code is showing maf sensor. I cleaned it and engine runs when I disconnect the top clamp so I know I need a replacement. Has anyone ever tried an maf sensor from ebay or made in china? Just weighing out my options here. Also, is it normal for my car to already need a new sensor being a 2018 model??
