Default Engine light on

Got the engine light on today,I immediately went to the local auto parts store and had them check the codes. The code given was P0030 (Heater control circuit), which appears to be the O2 sensor? So I parked the car for about five minutes to buy some food, turned the car back on and the engine check light is gone. So my questions are:
1. Is there a possibility that this engine check light will re-appear? and if it does,
2. Does the warranty usually take care of this issue? And finally,
3. How long can I drive it with a faulty O2 sensor?

Thanks!

It has 25K miles on it so it's still under warranty , the reason I asked is because I read somewhere that this sensor is not covered under warranty. i'll call them tomorrow morning either way but just wanted this information beforehand. Thanks.

3 years/36k miles bumper to bumper warranty? Doesn't that imply everything is covered? Or do i need to RTFM?

Take it to your dealer. I think emissions are covered for 7 or 8 years?

Hey apocalypto,

I recommend you have your vehicle diagnosed at your Ford dealer. Your Service Manager is in the best position to look into this for you. He can check into any warranty, assistance, recalls, or Customer Satisfaction Programs that may apply to your vehicle. Let me know the outcome.

Thanks for the suggestion Deysha. The engine check light hasn't re-appeared but i'm taking it in just in case.
