      Of course you can drive. Only thing I guess is, the air/fuel ratio would not be optimal and it would reflect as power/mileage drop. Do get it sorted out asap. Also if you have a friend who has the same car as yours, you can swap the sensor, clear the error and check. If it is just the sensor, you can replace it easily.

      You need O2 Sensor (OE O2 sensors are bit pricy) and it is straight forward to replace. You can drive around for now but you need a replacement for sure.

      No. Try replacing the A/F sensor with a good one from another car, then clear the code and check.

      Edit: True, O2 sensors are damn expensive. Maybe you can try to get after market ones. You can also get wide band O2 sensors.

      Guess you lost the a/f sensor heater circuit there, which probably heats up the sensor to bring it up to operating temperatures quickly, when doing a cold start.

      Probably will not have a significant effect on anything, but the check engine light is a nag right? Is the a/f sensor very expensive to replace?

      a typical O2 sensor costs 3500 bucks. not a big deal. that heater operates at close to 700 degrees C in the exhaust stream. failing after a long time is normal.

      camchennai, just change the O2 sensor and you should be good. if the OE sensors are expensive then get a replacement from outside. the only difference between these things is the coupler shape. other than that, *all* 4 wire O2 sensors operate identically.

      until you do this your ECU will be running in open loop with a rich fuel mixture. you will hardly find any difference in driving but your car will consume a tad more fuel than before because the ECU cannot adjust your fuel trims.

      Just what I had assumed earlier. Seems like an O2 sensor related issue. I would suggest you get the part replaced if the CEL still keeps flashing after clearing the error codes.

      Did they clear the codes? Did it come up again after driving around for 5+ kms. If yes it's better to get it replaced. Read more about the sensor here.

      Code p0135 now p1135

      Btw, the Camry comes with 2 sensors, 1 regular O2 sensor on the exhaust runner & another sensor at the firewall if you read the previous link. It's the sensor on the firewall that needs to be replaced. That might not be available outside. So it's best to get it changed in the showroom only.
