Your O2 sensor is a "part that is designed to wear out". there is no standard on replacing them, but if your car is running fine, and your check engine light comes on, and stays on, it's probably an O2 sensor.

If a 95 Nissan Pathfinder loses power on ascent and the computer diagnostic shows a 33 code does the oxygen sensor need to be changed?

code 33 is for the exhaust gas sensor (also known as the O2 sensor) if the computer is coding a 33 it does need to be changed. You can also uplug the sensor at the connector and if the truck runs better that's a good indication that the sensor is bad. The connector is on the passanger side fender wall with about 3 other connectors and it is on the bottom of the group with 3 wires running to the sensor.
