Hello, welcome to Just Answer/Pearl. My name isXXXXX willdo my very best to assist you with your question today.
Is the check engine or any warning lights coming on?
Also when you say the engine sounds like it has a load on it,do you mean that it seems to be reving high?
Yes the scan tool will detect a code for the sensor malfunction and this would need to be changed by the dealer or a independent shop as the system will require the scan tool after the replacement of the sensor.
