I can be driving along and the car just dies, I pull over and wait for about 5 minutes and it will start back up and run like nothing has happened. "Check Engine" light never comes on. I borrowed a code...

02 is not the problem you stated there where cel on when the car died. They could have been pending codes not related to the stall. Common on this car is crank, cam sen. If the crank fails it will stall and not show a crank sen fault code.

Why does my 1998 Honda CRV just die every now and then?

For a car of your age, a bad Oxygen Sensor may indeed be the problem. Usually, there is an oxygen sensor mounted in the exhaust manifold, and a second Oxygen Sensor mounted in the catalytic converter. The Engine Computer Module (ECM) compares the outputs of each of the sensors, and matches the difference to a look-up table. If the number is out of whack, you will trip an engine code. The ECM may also try to adjust the timing of the engine to compensate.
The "O2" sensors are not that costly, but they can be a bear to remove - after being installed all these years.
I did fix my old Ford Minivan by replacing both O2 sensors once. It's worth a try, and not too costly - provided you have the tools, and a floor jack.

1998 chevy s10 driving along and engine shut down.after sitting 10 started but was rough.went 100.ft and it shut off again.sat for a started and ran a couple miles like nothing was ever...

if it shuts off while driving and will not start back up for at least 10 minutes, then it may be the crank sensor doing this. is check engine light on! if so get it scanned to find problem code. if no scanner, auto-zone will scan for free. if light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all. good-day ! crank sensor timing will be out of sync. it controls timing and sends info to pcm.

Po141 o2 sensor code comes on my 1999 chevy s10 I've replaced the sensor. The check engine light came on again.

You should have 4 O2 sensors and it sounds to me like the wrong one was replaced. Bank 1 Sensor 2.

O2 sensor problem, running rich. Please help

was the code for rich or lean? may try cleaning mass air flow sensor. it is in the air intake tube and has a flat wire connector. take out of tube and take four torx bolts out and clean with mass air flow cleaner or brake cleaner and put back in when dry. or it could be a bad wire on the o2 harness. look for chaffing or broken wires in harness by o2. also could be the exhaust system has a slight blockage. could also be some other things but try these first.
