I got a code saying my sensor was faulting then my car wouldn't start. So I replaced the sensor. The engine light went away and it started no problem for about 2 weeks. Then the check engine light came back on and its having problems starting again. Since I bought a cheaper sensor online, should I replace it with a better part? I took it out and cleaned it and it started again but still have the engine light on. Is there something else it could be? And do I need a mechanic?

Good evening.

Yes, I would get a dealer sensor. Aftermarkets are not the same quality as the original.

Let me know how you make out.
