2000 Nissan Maxima Service Engine Soon - P0138, P0139 oxyge
2000 NISSAN MAXIMA
My dealer wants $900 to replace these sensors after I paid $500 for them to replace an oxygen sensor two weeks ago! I declined.
They "warned" me that I could not do it myself because the ECM MUST BE re-programmed.
1) Is that true?
2) Is that price outrageous?
have the same problem?

They said that it needs to be reprogrammed because there is an update for the computer that they have to do after the oygen sensors are replaced. There are updated oxygen sensors and updated calibration for your PCM for these particular codes. 900 is a lot. It would probably be better if you found someone that can do flashing. Not sure where you live, but I am sure there is someone reputable that can do it.
