This is a common failure item on most 1998 to 2006 models, not expensive, and something you can do yourself if you have the right tools. This 17 minute video will show you in detail how to do it yourself and what tools you will need. I have had two of these sensors fail on me personally. One V8 with 79.000 miles quit while pulling into my driveway. Another V8 my son was driving with 145,000 miles quit while ordering coffee at a drive-through. Having your car just quit on you NOT GOOD. The newer part is supposed to be more reliable than the original - so just replace it for safety and peace of mind.
