Cool 1997 Ford Contour Check Engine Light is on b/c of Oxygen Sensor

Hi all,

I have a 1997 Ford Contour with 91K miles. Yesterday my "check engine" light turned on and I went to the nearest AutoZone to read the engine code. (By the way they read the code for free)

AutoZone guys read the code and told me that the reason is Oxygen Sensor.

Any suggestion on what to do? Is it a serious problem? Because I will drive a 12-hour distance with that car soon.

You'll need to post the code # that was read for any help with a diagnosis. DO NOT regard AZ's determination of the "reason" as a competent diagnosis (i.e. - don't start throwing parts at it).

Listen to pmgheritage, O/2 sensors report problems but are rarely the cause of the problem. AutoZone people are just cashiers and have no clue about diagnosis.
