Default problems after problems

My 2003 Bonni is at 79k miles I was told I need a major tuneup.
My motor mount is busted the one on driver side of car.
I was also told i need a new thermostat and I have been driving my car for about almost
A year with my check engine light on auto zone keeps telling me its my bank1 o2 sensor.I have replaced three already. I need to know the cost to get fixed and sometimes when i pull to a stop light and get ready to pull off car hesitates. Im trying to get it back to it was the first 4months i got the car.

Needing a tune up at 79k miles is not unusual. Get some decent plugs and wires. There are several threads on peoples favorites - Delco, Autolite, NGK for plugs; Delco, Autolite, and Belden for wires - don't get Bosch plugs.

Search for the solid hockey puck mount mod for your transmission mount problem.

The O2 problem is likely because the keep selling you a Bosch O2 sensor, which do not last in our cars. AC/Delco or Denso are your best choices.

All good advice. Stay away from Bosch and change your air filter and cabin filter.
