    heres the deal about a month ago my CE light came on. I had it scanned and it came up with code 130 if i remeber correctly. Anyways it said drivers side o2 sensor slow response. So I replaced it and reset the ecu and it went away for a few days then the light came on. It stayed on for a week then went off. Then a week later it came on. Weird, the X drives great and no hesitations at all. Is this common? what should I do?
