check engine light on 2001 Toyota Highlander

check engine light has been a constant problem for the past 3-4 yrs. 01" highlander, 77000 miles, has had o2 sensors changed and fuel mixture sensors changed over this time. Light has come on again(need to have this one read), is this a common problem for this year? Up to the first 5-6 yrs never a problem.
