Same problem I'm having. My Lexus dealer told me I need to replace my transmission!! Estimated cost: $4,800!

Most likely you should startwith Air Fuel Sensor. Twice the cost of the oxygen sensors but they do twice as much. The P0158 is for the rear oxygen sensor and may not be faulty. A scanner would be able to determine the overall condition.
