Hey guys, I changed out my 02 sensor last month after getting the "o2 sensor upstream" engine code, what would cause the engine light to return with the same code after a few weeks. I ve considered vacuum leaks but is there anything further after that? Thanks

What is the code you are getting?
Is the sensor OEM?

P0420 - it was a direct fit but not oem. The code was reset and was off for over 100 miles before popping back up reread same code p0420. Thanks for the quick reply

P0420 - 3 way Catalyst malfunction.
The catalytic converter seems to be faulty.

This is not an O2 sensor fault and when the MIL comes on, it does not necessarily mean a component in the circuit is faulty. It could be wiring or control fault.
