My car has 130K miles on it; I haven't >replaced the sensor and I don't think the previous owner did either. This story about replacing the sond every 60k miles, is this true? My '95 9000CS has often the check engine coming on. mostly it disappears after the next startup. Sometimes even while driving it goes away again. Worst case I have to pull the battery connector for a couple of seconds to be rid of it. It is a '95 9000 (B204i/NoTurbo), LPG converted since 2000 and I blamed the light on the gas system. Since the light never comes up on gasoline, only on autogas. Is there a way to determine the need for replacement of the sond? Nel
