The service engine light has come on. A local repair shop said it needs the oxygen sensor replaced. They quoted $250 to repair. I can buy a sensor of less than $50.00. Where does it go and is it difficult to replace?


I work for Bosch and run the line that makes your sensor. These are very easy to replace and the aftermarket sensor is the same as oem. These shops charge $75-125 each sensor, So he is charging $75-$90 hr and part cost is $125. It takes about 10 min ... 1999 Nissan Altima

My car studders from first to second. No transmission codes . possible MAS issuse both read outs sensors came up lean fuel mixture. Opened the MAS an it was clean but cleaned it anyways. The service engine light is still on. Could I just need to replace the MAS even though its clean? maybe wiring is wrong? or bad? Also said fuel injectors could be bad. Heated oxygen sensor? what could it be? Fuel pump??

After driving about 15 minutes at highway speed the front end feels like the four wheel drive clutches are trying to kick in even though it is in two wheel drive. Only after vehicle has been driven for 15 or so miles. Same service tech said I need to have the computer ''flashed'' for an update for the transfer case. An

I had the ABS light come on along with the service traction control. I had it checked at a GM dealer and was told that the right hub needed to be replaced. I OK'd the work thinking it would take care of both of the service lights. The ABS light is out but the traction control light still comes on when making turns or when backing up at times. The GM service rep said nothing could be done until the light stayed on. What is causing the light to come on when traction control is not even needed?


Hi,the traction control light coming up means there is a fault detected in the system and a scan tool will be required to learn what fault has been detected. Possible steering angle sensor, wheel speed sensor or brake pressure sensor since the light ... 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

My engine light came on in my 1998 Toyota Corolla VE. It it said it was emissions related so I replaced the Bosch 13051 Oxygen Sensor, OE Type Fitment. The light went off and stayed off for about one and half months. However, the light came on again and it is giving me the same reading with emissions issues. What do I need to fix this time if the new sensor fixed the light last time? Does the same oxygen sensor need replacing or the back one now? Thanks for your help, Jeff


It can be any of the sensor causing this problem.Or may be both sensors needs replacement.t all depends on what error code its giving.\015\012\015\012P0420 code refers to the downstream O2 sensor (the after the cat) reporting that the cat ... Toyota Corolla

I just purchased a 2000 lincoln continental for my daughter. She said that the service engine light came on and after that the transmission light came on and went off and came on again. I had the mechanic check it and he said I had a code P1744 and that he would need to check for corrosion and that I need a transmission gasket due to leaking. Could the code P1744 also mean the transmission is going? Also I was told that the top side engine mount is cracked (Dog bone). Is that neccessary to repla

The battery will not hold a charge. Took it to Service center two years ago for a new battery but said the battery was now fully charged and I did not need a new one. BUT since that time the car would not start because of dead battery four more times. And had to give it a jump. The dealer at the service center said that the batterys are so small in the Accents that it will not take much to have them go dead. This being true in the cold weather. Could I up grade to a regular size battery ?


You can upgrade your battery,i suggest that you do so. the more cold cranking amps on your battery the better.if theres an advance auto parts store near you they will have what you need and also install it for free. autozone does the same thing also. ... Hyundai Accent

Just had our 2003 Honda Pilot serviced and the dealer said the FGR Valvue needed replacing as it was apparently cloging and causing the car to loose power and hesitate at times. The dealership said we also needed the front and side motor mounts replaced ($607) and the inner CV boot replaced ($260). Our car has 81,000 miles on it and is used for infrequent city driving. I was surprised! Decided to pospone that work. Would these issues be common with so little miles on the car?
