    his check engine light is for a bad o2 sensor - about how much total will that be to fix? -what will happen if he doesn't fix it?

    and it just started leaking a little, so he put in "stuff" that is supposed to stop it (so far it is) but what is actually causing the leak (possibly). and waht can be done to stop it?

    Thanks guys!

    he could easily do the 02 sensor himself even if he doesnt have much experience with cars. im sure he could find an easy how to guide for his specific car online somewhere. it would save money, which he might need for that oil leak (depending on where it is as syndrome said)

    Yeah, the color of the oil, or if its water than you could taste it to see if its antifreeze. But yeah, the O2 change is an easy job to perform if you have a floor jack and maybe a few jack stands.
