Engine light came on. Took 2002 Honda CRV to Midas. They diagnosed three potential sensor failures (po178, p1167, po845). They suggested getting computer update(which might fix false error messages) before making expensive repairs. Took car to Gustman Honda, asked for computer update. They acted like I was from Mars. What should I do?
They told me I needed a new O2 sensor (which is what this sounds like), and charged me $800 to repair it. I'm guessing from this feed that all that was really needed was a software update.
