Oxygen sensor

Question : THE engine light on the dash-board of my 1995 Honda Accord 2.0 comes on permanently.

I had it diagonalised and was told that the oxygen sensor had to be replaced.

However, my mechanic told me that I can still drive without replacing the sensor.

I would like to know whether it is an oxygen sensor and whether I will damage the car if I drive without replacing it.

Answer : You can drive without replacing the sensor but you will be emitting more emissions and the air-fuel mixture ratio will be affected, leading to possibly heavier fuel consumption and a drop in performance.

The O2 sensor is an important component in the emission and fuel injection system and should be replaced when faulty.
