Service engine light on 97 Taurus

Asked by Apr 14, 2011 at 09:34 AM about the 1997 Ford Taurus GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can adding a can of Heet cause the Service Engine light to come on? I was told that the O2 sensor was slow to respond. Do I still need to replace the sensor? This one has 106,000 miles on it.

Replace the sensor that is slow

have a scan done,it has 3, 02 sensors,or just replace all 3,it would be the best,and no a can of heat will not kick a SES light on.
