2003 Lexus ES300 Question: Engine Light due to oxygen

 

Question

I took my Lexus ES 300 (100,000 miles) into the dealership as the engine light appeared on the dash. Was told that I needed a new sensor and that the car wouldn't pass inspection if not replaced. What is the cost of replacing the sensor including labor? Is it true that the car wouldn't pass emission inspection if not replaced? If not replaced, would there be damage to the car?
