2002 nissan pathfinder hesitates on exceleration. have replaced o2 sensors on both sides , plug , ect. replaced timing sensor. what else could i check?

It sounds like you have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor) sensor, it is an easy fix, and you can get the part from any auto parts store. The TPS sensor is located on the throttle body, and it is held in place with 2 screws and has 1 plug to it. Before you change it, make sure that it is plugged in. Mine did the same thing and somehow the TPS had came unplugged, so I plugged it back in and the issue went away.

I was told I need to replace my TPS in my 204 pathfinder. Is this a common problem in this model and make of Nissans? Could there be another issue that would make the mechanic think that this is the...

TPS Sensors issues, are common on all vehicles.
Yes, you could misdiagnose anything, on todays high tech vehicles,if you don't know the components,how they work and how they function in a system. If the sensor wasn't tested at all,you need a new mechanic. Even the pros throw parts at it.
If the TPS needs replacing, you can do it yourself. Go to the auto parts store and buy it. Look it up on NAPA site or others. About $75.00. Too easy, to pay someone to do.
A scanner code doesn't mean replace something. That was were you were going with your question. Always test,then replace. Test,not scan
Do this. Go to a shop,stand next to your vehicle, and have somone test it in front of you,not scan the system,actually test the TPS. Back probe it and put a Meter or Oscilloscope on it.
