Maf sensor errors on my cadillac cts - 2004 (3.2 liter)

I've been having my engine light consistently on and was told its the maf sensor, in which it could be the plugs or oil leak down to the plugs since the error indicates that both bank leans misfire.  I have 99,994.00 miles on the car and was told for further diagnostic its going to cost $200-$250 just to troubleshoot. Wondering if I should chance it and change plugs or dump the car.  It also needs the driver side fog light assembly as the left blinker blinks very fast as of two days ago.
Thanks!

My engine light is on told it was oxgen sensors is that right


If they connected a scan tool to it and retrieved the error code from the computer and thats what it told them more than likely it is. Depending on what code it threw it could be something causing it to throw O2 code.

1988 Dodge Aries K 2.5L Engine Trouble and codes


CODE 14
Trouble Code 14 indicates that the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is reporting abnormally high readings. CTS is used to control fuel mixture, timing, idle speed, TCC and EGR operations among others. The thermistor used has a low resistance when hot, rising as the coolant cools. This error then, indicates a very low resistance in the CTS circuit.
CODE 15
Trouble Code 15 indicates that the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is reporting abnormally low readings. CTS is used to control fuel mixture, timing, idle speed, TCC and EGR operation, among others. The thermistor used has a high resistance when cold, lowering as the coolant warms. This error then, indicates a very high resistance in the CTS circuit.
CODE 33
Trouble Code 33 indicates that the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is reporting more air is entering the engine than makes sense based on RPM and TPS. The MAF sensor produces a frequency output; around 30 Hz at idle to 150 Hz under acceleration. The frequency varies proportionally to airflow. The ECM monitors the frequency and thus determines airflow into the engine. Typical idle MAF is 5 to 7 grams per second.
