SOURCE: oxygen sensor keeps going bad,
It could be the problem or he just wants to make a lot if money. I had a similar problem and it turned out to be electrical. I had another component out that caused an abnormal electrical condition, it could be happening to you. Check to make sure the sensor is within it electrical limits, (volts, amps, and ohms) and then refer to your vehicles electrical schematic to find relative components within the system. Don't go rippin into you motor, yanking off the heads, until you eliminate the problem as being electrical. get a good multimeter and remember, its only a 12v system. good luck

Yes, cam sensor can cause a hard starting condition, but not that common on a 2000 maxima. I haven't replaced single one on a 2000 Max and I have one also (maxima that is) . Never had any problem with cam or crank sensors. I think that your problem is somewhere else, like IAC valve circuit. Just a tip. Its kinda hard to diagnose something over the computer, without Consult2 (Nissan scanner) beeing hooked up to the car and seeing what the car is doing while cranking for my self.

the cam sensor definitly can cause the problem. pull the trouble code and make sure the check engine light is for the cam sensor. if so, replace it and retest

are they buying south of the border pumps from autozone or places like that or are they quality ones like NAPA?
Another reason might be are they installing a new screen sock on the new pump or keep using the original one?
and the last would be if you are running on almost empty all the tome,the gas is what lubes the internal bushings
