Default Chck engine light doesn't goaway

Engine light went up in my Camry 99.
Code was 1135.
First mechanic replaced air filter and oxygen sensor with another old
one. ($95)
Light went on again after ~50 miles.
Now mechanic forced me to replace oxygen sensor with the brand new one
saying that thta's what Toyota recommends. ($224)
Light went on again after ~50 miles.
Now mechanic wants me to leave my car for a few days and do something
else. I will again be out $$$$.

Does this all make sense?
To me it's obvious that brand new oxygen filter wasn't needed since
light went up again afterwards. Am I right?

Why can't such problem be solved in one shot?
Is my mechanic incompetetent?

There are two oxygen sensors. I bet he changed the one on the front.
After all it is the easiest one to reach. The other oxygen sensor is
located under the car and requires the car to be put on a lift.
After the codes are cleared, it takes several miles for the check
engine light to come on again.
I had the same thing happen on our 99 Camry V-6. Just haven't taken
time to replace the other oxygen sensor.

P1135 is the code for malfunction of sensor 1 bank 1 which is the front A/F
sensor (O2 sensor).
Had one replaced on my 2002. I belive it was $75 for the sensor (Denzo)and
$75 for labor.
Was the new check engine code p1135??

New code (the third one) is P0125: insufficient coolant temperature.
Mechanic showed me the long check-list of things that should be
checked.
And he's saying it will take many days to check all these.
EGR being one of them, he says car will be shaking in idle if it's bad,
injection system (filter?) is another one.

Any suggestions what's the likely thing that's bad? Just trying to
get the second opinion and save some time and trouble here....
