Re: Check Engine...hooked it up...o2 sensor (Car2ner)

First, what was the exact code number you got?
Second, who told you a O2S is $900? Because they're not much at all.
Generic O2Ss are around $40+ or so... but you need to know which one to buy.
There are two on your vehicle, and your code is show which one to replace.
