Check Engine Light Due to Oxygen Sensor Failure - my light came on and now my auto start will not work.
I had that problem so I stated replacing spark plugs, 6 things on the gasket, time sensor?, and other replacement as maintenance to correct problem. Now they say I need a catalytic converter which is too expensive. Most have told me its at least a 1000.00 job
Bought a car for grandsons graduation and it will not pass state emission test. Could it just be the oxygen sensor?? Gas mileage is fine and it runs good
