Those sensors are really pain in the ass. The light of CHECK ENGINE appeared on the dash board along time ago, a couple years ago, to be more exact. Since then I never replaced them because it doesn't make any sense to change them after particular kilometers, because they die very often these days, quality is sh*t. You can replace for a new($200ca) or used($50ca) ones

The light goes off every time after I drive my car about an hour or an hour and a half on the highways at high speed. But light returns after a few days of driving on the regular streets.

So, I consider it as a pain in the ass to have them at all. Car is good on its own, I will not propagate not to buy it. Mechanically car is beautifully made, but electronically it is sh*t.
