Re: 2004 volvo s 60 check engine light on
I would replace the bad 02 sensor and also have the engine checked for a tune up and fuel injection purge. Make sure whoever does the repairs clears the ECM memory so the light will go out.
Bad spark plugs and dirty fuel injectors can cause a rich condition that a weak 02 sensor can't keep up with.

Head to your local Autosave auto parts store or Orielly's and have them do a free check engine light diagnoses. This is a free service by many local auto parts stores and the computer will give you the answer to your check engine light issue
Take the vehicle to Auto Zone or O'Reilley's auto parts of any local auto parts store that offers to read stored codes for free and they will be able to tell you exactly what codes are showing and what they mean for free. In addition you will be able to by the repair parts while your there.
There are hundreds of reasons for the check engine light to illuminate, and a common cause is a loose gas cap. check your cap, and if it looks tight, stop by a local auto parts store, such as a Autozone, and they usually will check your car for free, and give you an idea as to what caused the light
You probably need to get the codes cleared on the ecu before the engine light will go off. Even after you fix the problem, the computer doesn't know that the problem has been solved until the fault codes have been cleared.
If the noise is a whistling or screeching type noise it means the breather assembly (integrated in the oil filter housing) has gone bad, its part of the PCV system. Good news is they are on an extended warranty now, I believe 10 years, 100K miles. Take it to the dealer for a free fix :)
You could have a bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor. It would really help if we could know the code.
Have you ever fueled up with the engine running? How is your fuel mileage? Has it ever backfired?
Why don't you run by an auto parts (they will do it for free) store and have it rescanned and get back to me.
