Question about 1996 Toyota Avalon
The check engine light came on and this is the reading that the checker gave. Can you tell which sensor it is and the most reasonable place to buy a replacement part, if necessary?
The P0135 bank 1 sensor 1 is the one on the right exhaust manifold, between the engine & firewall, which is tough to get to. You will need the special slotted socket. The Bosch replacement is available at NAPA or Advance for about $190. I bought two for my 03 Avalon on Amazon.com for $110 each. p.s. DO NOT buy the version that you reuse the plug from the old sensor. Learned that the hard ($) way.

O2 sensors are tricky. sometimes like anything else they fail. many times though the exhaust mixture they encounter is out of their range and that shows up as a failure.since you seem to have no other problems , I would go ahead and change them, but don't be disappointed if the code shows up again (at least you know it's not the sensors.) I don't like using the process of elimination when doing repairs but sometimes you must.

Disconnect your battery for 10 minutes after which you connect it back the lights should go off. Don't report to toyota. Nigerian style!
