Looks like I have to buy a front left O2 sensor since I threw a CEL 1001 over the weekend. I reset the ECU but it came back again today. My question is what brand does everyone usually get as a replacement? This site https://www.automedicsupply.com/catalog4.php?PHPSESSID=697ecc5ea23585a4317d8a7f94cf5de2# shows 3 brands listed for OEM fitment; Walker, Denso and Bosch. I just want to make sure I get the better of the three brands. Thanks for the input.

Joffe has used the Walker brand and has had no problems, iirc. Of course Bosch is the recommended o2 sensor from Nissan.

Ok, thanks for the info guys. What's the normal life expectancy of a typical O2 sensors? I'm at 75K right now so would it make more sense to buy the the front right sensor as well since I be down there changing the left one? I have already changed out the rear O2 ~15k ago so that one is good but the current left/right front ones are still the factory ones.

Funny...my rear 02 went out around 50-60k as well. I'm at 80k right now and haven't had a problem with either of the front 02 sensors. (knock on wood)

I wouldn't say go ahead and replace the other as a preventative measure. They aren't like headlights where if one goes out the other is soon to follow. I don't even think there is a 'typical' life span. *shrug*

If you have the money to spend though then go ahead and replace both...along with your KS and coolant sensor and TPS. (just kidding)

Sounds good Jeff. I don't want to spend money when it's not needed. I just didn't want to change this O2 and a month later have to jack the car up again and swap out the other. (Time is money as well.) These little things always seem to come up after I install a new mod that is totally unrelated. (DTM replaced GenII Altezza and Mag-Lite Mod in trunk.) Maybe its my car's way of telling me to stop and to put it back to stock? (No chance.) :)

Well I wouldn't say it really takes a lot of time to replace an o2 sensor...less time than changing out leds for sure.
:p, haha

The other could go bad in a month or it could be 2 years, that's the general consensus.
