Question o2 Sensor Tripping

I have a 96 Ford Probe and the check engine light keeps tripping and the fault is the o2 sensor. I had a leak in the exhaust pipe by the o2 sensor and replaced the pipe. I thought that would stop the check engine light from going off but it came back on. I replaced the rotor, cap, plugs, and wires and it still has a rough idle. Does anyon have any idea what could be causing this? Any help would be great, thanks.

Patrick

Re: o2 Sensor Tripping

The sensor itself could be damaged, I would replace it and if the check light still comes on then its not because of the O2 sensor IMO.

Re: o2 Sensor Tripping

Would a bad O2 sensor cause the engine to idle rough?

Yes it could make idle quite bad.
