    Question How much is this gonna cost me?

    Got an Error P0138 which means something with the O2 sensors or too much gas getting into the engine.

    I don't want to hate this JEEP! How much do you think it's gonna be to fix?

    Jeep stealership rate in Richmond VA is $89.00 per hour plus parts...

    Is it idling rough? Loss of power?
    Have you checked out some other forums to see what the cause could be?
    If it really is the 02 sensors, you can do those yourself for just the cost of the sensors. If it's a clogged cat, or something else exhaust related, you can take it to a muffler shop and have something put together much cheaper than you'd spend on replacing it from the dealer.

    I noticed when i'm at a complete stop in neutral, I feel like it's gonna turn off. It's pretty loud- not sure if that's related or not, but I'm not used to hearing the vehicle I drive (usually got the mom-mobile).

    Hahaha... honestly, it's as easy as removing a bolt, and unplugging the connector.
    They make special 02 sensor sockets, basically a deep well socket with a slit up the side for the cable to pass through.

    A lot of exhuast shops will change them also, and they are cheaper than the 'stealership.'

    On a side note, my light comes on now and again, signalling a bad 02 sensor, but they are both new. The PO thinks it might be the cat, as thats the only part of the exhuast not replaced yet.

    A muffler shop could find out for sure for you, and fix either problem.

    I changed BOTH my O2's not too long ago, and had never done them before. Pretty easy, but wish I'd known about the "special socket" mentioned above. My O2 #2 needed to be heated up quite a bit before we could get a few good turns on it, just due to rust-welding though, and I reached up to get a feel for my O2 #1 and it was only on hand tight, SCORE !!!
