is urs o2 sensor or the secondary o2 sensor. cuz I had to replace my secondary o2 sensor recently, and it cost me $230...the o2 sensors are the most expensive sensors to replace. it doesn't affect the engine or anything, it juss give u bad fuel economy.

I bought a used O2 sensor from Lucky Star and than i passed easily on my emmisions. I was told never buy aftermarket O2 sensors cause they just dont last as long as OEM parts. A used one costs $60
