I recently replaced the down stream 02 sensor as that what the check engine light was for. My mechanic installed it the check engine light was cleared only to come back on and stay on.i cleared the light again and again .went for an inspection only to have the car fail. The evap is set.but the 02 and the catalyst are not.im in NY and if one monitor is not set the car can still pass inspection with at least one of the monitors not set...for a week now I've driven the car about almost 600 miles most on the expressway and the rest on the street. How much longer is it going to take for one of the monitors to set....Please help

    Problem has got to be diagnosed and repaired FIRST! Just because some sort of code reader came up with an 02 sensor code does not mean the sensor is at fault... hell, i wish it were that easy.....I'd be rich.!! ..But then again, anybody could do it...see a qualified 'mechanic' and get it repaired.

    Ohhhh I did and my mechanic replaced and cleared the code
    And he's the one that told me to just drive it for a while
    And I was just wondering how long and what the correct
    Drive cycle would be

    Until the problem that's causing the light to come on is fixed, it cant complete the cycle!
