Q: My car has an engine check light orange in colour

asked by on

some told me that i need to replace a censor oxygen

My car has 94567 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to have the Check Engine Light diagnosed by having the computer scanned and any codes diagnosed. Be aware that O2 sensor codes may not be an O2 sensor failure but an engine running lean or too rich. I would have a local expert diagnose the Check Engine codes more thoroughly to pinpoint the problem and correct this issue properly.
