After my great birthday present, I now have a check engine light for an 02 sensor.    Is this pricey and can I run a while without getting it fixed? I read a bit about it and i believe it's possible to fix without pulling the engine, yes? Just when this car started running right too. Should have bought that warranty.

here in ATL, they test emissions every year close to your birthday when you get a new tag sticker. they check for faults by plugging into the OBD. a bad O2 sensor would fail this test. if CT is the same, you could have lucked out a little! ride it for another year until your next birthday

otherwise it is a pricy repair. BUT, if you have a 6MT (skinny tranny) and your downstream O2 sensor puked, a good tech will not have to drop the engine and can wiggle it out.
