Default ? about o2 sensor

I have a '93 c1500 with the 4.3 tbi in it, and my o2 sensor bung broke off of my y-pipe. Would I be able to patch the hole in the y-pipe and just run it without an o2 sensor, or do you guys suggest that I get a new bung and put the o2 sensor back in. If I don't have to put it back in, can I unplug it, or should I just leave it hang there? And will it throw an ses light? and if so, would I be able to get it cleared and not have it come back?

If ya plan on keeping the truck fix it if not don't worry. Check engine light will come on and no you won't be able to clear it and you'll probable lose gas mileage.

you need that sensor for engine control. fix or replace it. if it was the O2 sensor after the cat then you could eliminate that sensor without worry.

Fix it or you will wash the cylinders down with gas, causing premature engine failure.

Any exhaust shop has new bungs they can weld in for you, it will cost you about $20 to $30, if they want more find another shop!

It is $75 for a new y-pipe with an o2 bung on it. I am taking it to my uncles tomorrow and we are going to weld a washer over the hole and weld a nut that the o2 sensor will fit in over the washer.

They would probably charge $10-20 just for the bung if they had them.
