1997 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 78,000 miles
i just bought a 97 tarus. Drove it for a few hours in the city and the service engine light came on. I took it to a autopart store and they pluged it in to thier diagnostic device wich reads heated o2 sensor bank1. So I replaced it. Unplugged the battery for 10 minutes. Hooked it back up. Code cleared and all good. An hour and a half after doing this the light came back on again. Took it back to the autopart store and it read the same thing. A detail print out saying heated o2 sensor bank 1. The wires look fine, no breaks, no corrosion, nothing seems loose or any broken pigtails. Car runs fine with good idling. Just took it to the emmisions test 7 weeks back and it passed so I was able to get my plates. The light doesnt go on and off. When u drive it for a while it goes on and stays on. This part was 70 bucks. I would of got mad but nothing changes my luck so maybe you know? That code it read was detailed and to the point. It wasnt just a in general code. Im so fed up with this since I just bought the car.
have the same problem?
