How much to put in car

Asked by Jan 16, 2010 at 06:49 PM about the 2001 Nissan Maxima GLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2001 Maxima GLE. in very good shape. Mileage 73,000. The "Service engine soon" light came on, and the car stalls in neutral and park, but not in drive. I took the car to the mechanic. They changed the oxygen sensor bank 1, sensor 2, and bank 2 sensor 2. This cost aprox. $500.00. After I road tested the car, the light came back on and the car still stalls. So, I took the car to Nissan. They had the car for 2 days, and coudln't figure out why the car is still stalling. They said that they are waiting for an answer from their repair hot-line. What I want to know is, if they tell me it is going to cost $5,000.00 to fix the car, is the car worth it. How much more money should I put into this car? When do I say to hell with this, and buy a new car? The Blue Book says the car is worth between $5,000 and $7,000.
Thanks for any help.

could be something as stupid as a neutral safety switch, or a broken wire in the center console ....weird that it runs when its in drive, and not in park or neutral..hence the reason i said that
