What he means, I think, is that the car goes into "closed loop" mode. I still don't know what that means but I have heard that several timesbefore

its actuall open-loop mode,& what happens is your ecu goes to a default setting from the factory which does not use the sensor that is gone bad, in most cases, your teg will run rich.
