well, check engine light with a 32 code is still blinking at me but now my mileage has gone from 31 to 33!!!! i would think if the 02 sensor was bad the car would run rich, right? shall i not worry about it then or find someone with the electrical test stuff to test it? also, have noticed a little bit of pinging...am running 87 octance....just the regular stuff...

Using less fuel and pinging?... you're running lean, and yes a bad O2 sensor could cause it. Dont wait to long to fix it either, you'll kill the engine.
My engine isn't pinging, but I run premium - I've never replaced an O2 sensor before except in our 88 Suburban - does an engine from an 85 GL wagon have one even? (The car is an 86, but the engine is an 85 EA82)

What can cause an o2 sensor to go bad like that can be contaminants from leaking oil onto the outside of it, burning too much oil in the engine, burning coolant can contaminate it, and also can cause the element to actually crack.
