and there is another problem :)

My engine check light comes up almost every time 10 minutes after I start the engine.
Is the reason one of the O2 sensors or something else? Is there a chance that one of the sensors has a bad contact somewhere?

Take it to autozone and just see what they say. Sometimes they know they're stuff and stometimes they don't.

That could be the oxygen sensor heater failure code. I would not presume yet that the heater has a problem. I am fighting a similar situation discussed elsewhere in this forum.

Ha. My check engine goes on whenever I push my car to it's limits. If your not workin your engine hard then It could be something with the oxygen sensors. I could be wrong though ..

No it doesnt come up when I pusth it to the limit :) It sometimes comes up when I stop pushing it! :D really! few seconds after I stop racing and start driving normally it comes up :)
But for example - I just came home, and I was driving for like 30 mins and it didnt come up... It comes up from time to time :)

Hey I have one more question to ask... Is there anything wrong if I drive a car with a bad clutch? I mean, it doesnt make any sounds jet, but it is bad :) Can I damage anything doing that?

Did you replace PCV valve, my engine light started to come on and I replaced spark plugs, spark plug wires and eventually replaced PCV that did it.
