Let me guess auto zone told you that the code meant the O2 sensors were bad so they could sell you 2 $80 sensors? P0402 has nothing to do with a bad O2 sensor its caused by excessive egr flow and the link takes you to a site that will explain how to diagnose what exactly it is so you don't have to throw parts at it. http:// www.obd-codes.com/p0402 feel free to reply to this post if you need more help, I will get an email on my phone within 20 minutes of your reply and I will get to it once I have a few free minutes.
