engine light on

hey guys i dont know if you can help with this but i figured id give it a shot. My sister has a 97 taurus and the check engine light is on. i dont have the code at hand but the guy at the shop told me it could be a bad mass air sensor. he said the code is saying that the fuel/air mixture is incorrect. If this is the case, is there harm being done to the car if she continues to drive it?

thanks for any input in advance

Re: engine light on

Hard to say. I assume the car drives normally still? I'd get the code. It helps a lot to be able to check the code against other people who have the same code.

Probably needs an 02 sensor, or try cleaning the MAF with some electrical parts cleaner.
