Please note that if the oxygen sensor is the cause of the check engine light, it’s important to get it in for service as soon as possible. Driving for prolonged stretches with a faulty oxygen sensor will do damage to your catalytic converter, which is one of the more costly auto repairs.
The best way to make sure you don’t run into problems with the mass airflow sensor is to make sure to replace your air filters at least once each year.
Replacing the catalytic converter can be price, and it represents one of the worst case scenario of a check engine light coming on. It’s worth noting that one of the most common causes of a broken catalytic converter are related to driving the car for prolonged stretches while experiencing some of the other issues we’ve discussed. Dealing promptly with the check engine light is the best way to avoid having to replace the catalytic converter.
