My service engine light soon as been on for about a week. I took it to AutoZone for the diag test. They said it could be a bad oxygen sensor or fuel switch. I was wondering how long I can drive the car before I get it fixed? I was hoping to wait 3 weeks before I take it in, but I am afraid I will break down while driving to work or cause more damage to the car? Thank you!

If it's driving OK now, you should be able to get by in 3 weeks, though your gas mileage might be less.

Get the code number and head over to GAOwnersClub.com - they can narrow down the probable causes. If it's running rich, it could take out the cat O2 sensor
