My wife’s van has just shy of 99,000 miles and a few weeks ago the engine light went on. Other than the light the van drove fine. As we were to drive this van on a vacation however we thought we should check it out before getting stranded on some highway far away from home.
Took the car to the local Toyota dealership… they said both oxygen sensors, before and after the catalytic converter were bad and the fix was about $800 to fix. This also included and charged for a reboot of the computer but was not to replace the converter.
My question… is this a 4 hour job as they indicated and whats with the reboot. I asked the guy who checked us in and the guy who processed the paperwork (first one was on break) and got two different reasons for the reboot and such.
So… does this sound legit and reasonable? What would happen if I ignore them? The light is off and has not returned.
(Oh, and not really important but we rented a fun car for the trip… a brand new Chrysler 300… fun to drive and fun to put the miles on their car.)
Thanks for any guidance.
