First of all I ask have you owned the car since brand new in 99, or have you brought it used? If used, where did you buy it? Dealer, private seller, friend or relative? You DO need to realize that the car is already 16 years old and everything you mentioned are regular wear and tear maintenance items on almost every car. How the car was driven and maintained during it's lifetime has everything to do with how much work it needs. Having said that, do you do your own repairs or pay someone? I ask because you say you changed the O2 senor because the Ceng light was on. Did you have the car checked for trouble codes before changing the sensor or was it just a guess? If it was because of the code that's fine, but just because you change the sensor, that doesn't mean that is why the light came back on. You need to have the car checked for stored codes which can be done free at almost any Auto parts store chains like AutoZone, Advance, O'REilly's etc. When they read the codes, write down the code numbers and what it gives as the code definition, and in the exact order the codes are listed if more than one. Post the results here and we can walk you through the repairs needed. All the controls on more modern cars work in series with each other so you could have multiple problems, and when fixing them you start with the first cause(code/part listed) and then clear the codes and redrive the car so that the system relearns. Sometimes you will get more codes other times you have fixed it on the first go round.
