Re: gas spills into charcoal cannister
If the O2 sensor went bad, then yes it can have the injectors dumping an unnecessary amount of fuel, but it depends on which end of the spectrum the sensor went bad in. If the sensor went bad in the lean side of its voltage readings, then the ECU is going to receive a constant lean reading. If the ECU is reading a lean mode from a bad O2 sensor, then the ECU is going to try to richen the fuel mixture, but if the O2 sensor is bad, it will never switch out of the lean mode, therefore, the ECU will continue to try to richen the mixture.
