Well, I'm disappointed in the outcome of this thread. I have a rebuild manual of a particular brand/engine and if I remember right, it suggests O2 sensors, PCV sensors, EGR valve, and others I don't remember. I guess I'll just use that for a Nissan engine too. Specifically, it says that O2 sensors are not a work or fail sensor. They have a period of death during which they don't read accurately which causes a rich/lean condition unbeknownst to the pcu.
Not trying to be argumentative here, but it sounds like you started this thread with predetermined decision and wanted validation for that.
Like I mentioned, I have worked fleet maintenance for up to 400+ vehicles in a fleet that had fleet service managers that used specific software programs to mange the maintenance. Outside manufactures maintenance schedules, the sound money was never there to change nonscheduled items until actual point of failure as even failure rates of the same model vehicle and what parts failed when, varied wildly if at all.
As to using a rebuild manual from another brand/engine for your thought process, rebuilding is an entirely different scope of work and calling out replacement parts for that, is not a preventative maintenance strategy for normal maintenance, it is a "while you are in there" during the rebuild strategy.
Sorry you did not hear what you wanted, but sometimes it is what you may need to hear. Your prerogative to discount it I guess.
