How do you know if an oxygen sensor has gone bad in a 3.3 liter Intrepid?

One symptom is a fuel miliage loss. Typically a "Check engine light" will trigger. It can be watched with a scanner to see how it's waveform looks. If it doesn't continually change and is more of a flatline curve, then it is weak or bad.

When you have a bad oxygen sensor your car may consume a lot of gas. Your car may also drive slower.

It's an interference engine. Once timing is gone, expect failures in upper parts.

it is false economy to do that. the sensor is probably gone too,or on its way out. buy a new sensor. it will pay for itself in the long run.

Oxygen sensors are in the exhaust manifold, right before the crossover or headpipe, depending on which you have. If it says "bank 1" on the code reader, just replace them both. Since oxygen sensors fail after they've served for a while, if one has gone bad the other will be there soon.
