CEL, I had everything checked from the dealer today here is what they found:
O2 Sensor part $207 plus 1.5h labor total $340
Cable Actuator part 1242701673 (Auto kickdown cable)(transmission upshift delay) part $214 plus 8h labor Total $1200

Good grief thats another expensive repair. I went to a Indi shop and was quoted the same for the parts but labor would be $85 an hour. But he said he would run a separate diagnostic to make certain this is really the problem.
What do you guys think? The difference from the Indi shop vs the dealer would be $270.
Thanks

I think I'm glad that I do all my own work. 1.5hr to replace an O2 sensor? Puh-lease...

I'm not familiar with the auto kickdown cable on later 124s so I can't comment on that.
