Not unless they're bad. When they're bad, you'll usually get a check engine light or at least be able to pull a code for it from the computer. Usually it's not an issue until 100K miles or so unless your engine went bad at some point and you were burning oil out your exhaust.

replace. 90k is the upper limit of useful O2 sensor life. there are exceptions, but they are few and far between.
