1998 Honda Accord Sign In

A local repair shop told me today the reason my SES light is on is because both my upper and lower oxygen sensors need to be replaced. They want a total of $360.00 for the job (parts and labor). How hard is this to do? I use a mobile mechanic from time to time. I checked advanced Auto. I can buy both sensors myself for about 140 bucks I think. Are these things hard to install? Can I save myself a little money by having my mobile mechanic do it?

What do you recommend? TIA for any replies.

No, you don't need both sensors
What are the exact code numbers being set?

They did not say Hammer. I had some other work done and this is what they told me over the phone. I will pick the car up tomorrow. Maybe, I could ask them. My SES light is on. Is this more of an environmental thing?

I can't tell you anything until you get me those code numbers but I can tell you than any shop that tells you all your 0/2 sensors are bad doesn't know what he is doing.
