Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.

Do you happen to have the actual "p-code" that pointed to a faulty oxygen sensor?

Thanks for holding!

Ok. If the scan pointed to an oxygen sensor but the light has gone out by itself... this is not all too uncommon. Many times an oxygen sensor can be intermittent, or on it's way out, and set a code and the shortly there after clear it. There are other factors that can also affect the oxygen sensor to the point that it gives unexpected readings for a short time, like type of fuel used, driving conditions, etc. At this point, if the light is out, it is perfectly safe to drive the vehicle. IF the code returns, then the electrical connector and wire harness should be inspected for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If nothing is found, have the "p-code" scanned next time (it's just to the side of the description on the scan-tool). Using that p-code we can determine which oxygen sensor has the fault, and more insight as to why it is failing. Please be kind enough to leave a rating for our Q&A using the 'stars' at the top of the page or click 'Accept' when I have answered all your questions. A 5-star rating is very much appreciated!

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
