You beat your chest pretty hard, but short of that your too often in left field. Last time I checked OBDII started in 96. True that several codes are related to an O2, But that represents a VERY small portion of the possiblities of the codes that may be stored in the PCM. Your puking out "it's the O2 sensors" is the equivelent of playing:
But using someone else's money. Then to say. "theres a lot of over head, thats why they charge so much" just validates why it is foolish to go there. Common business sense says that if there is high overhead, there will be high charges. It doesn't mean you'll get high quality. Dealer parts do not mean higher quality. Dealers also use the aftermarket for certain parts. It doesn't mean you'll get a tech that cares anymore than anywhere else, especially if he isn't covered adequetly for diagnosis time. For the record diagnosis means actual testing, not spitting out "it's the O2 sensors". Yeah , maybe it is, but you don't know that the dealer hasn't put them in when she was at 120,000 miles do you?
Raz is right, stay in school and think about what your doing and saying.
