Hello and welcome to Just Answer! I will do my best to help you today. Did they replace the sensor? Do you know what code it has set now?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the sensor was tested and there was nothing wrong with it or anything else. havent had the truck coded
Expert:  Thomas replied 5 years ago.
Ok they should have replaced the sensor that had a code set for it. I often see the sensors act up when they are hot once it is time for testing they cool enough to test good.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
would this be a concern heading back to NY and then have it checked out again. Or something that should be addressed asap
Expert:  Thomas replied 5 years ago.
I would get it serviced ASAP. The sensor can shut down the engine and not allow it to restart if they read wrong. We don't want you on the side of the road.
