you should have three oxygen sensors on your car, one for each bank of three cylinders; should be towards the Y pipe on each exhaust manifold. Additionally you should have one on the exhaust pipe before the cadilitic converter.

Here are some possible causes, I would start with anything related to replacing the intake.
Air leaks in intake manifold, exhaust pipes or exhaust manifold
Fuel control sensor is out of calibration
Low fuel pressure (fuel filter clogged, pressure regulator failure)
One or more injectors restricted or pressure regulator has failed
O2 sensors contaminated, deteriorated or has failed
Vacuum hose is disconnected, broken, leaking or loose

A great tool to have that can save you some money to read computer error codes and clear them after work has been done can be had for under $100 from Actron. This is what I have been using and its a life saver but it's also good to have the vehicles repair manual as well.
The computer on this car is OBDII like many other vehicles out there these days so you'll need a tool that can plug in and read the outlet located above the shin of your right leg under the dashboard or steering wheel. Here is a link to a bunch of their products on amazon Actron and other OBDII Computer diagnostic code reader tools.

In Canada Canadian Tire sells a fuel additive to put in the tank and fill up with gas (must fill up to cover sensor in tank ) might take two appliciations but it worked in mine

From this website:
P0140 - 02 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
What does that mean?
The Powertrain control module (PCM) will provide a .45 volt reference voltage to the Oxygen sensor. When the O2 sensor reaches operating temperature, it will generate a voltage that will vary depending on the oxygen content of the exhaust. Lean exhaust generates a low voltage (less than .45V) and rich exhaust generates a high voltage (greater than .45V). O2 sensors on a specific bank marked as "sensor 2" (as this one is) are used to monitor emissions. A Three-Way Catalyst (TWC) system (catalytic converter) is used to control tailpipe emissions. The PCM uses the signal received from Oxygen sensor 2 (#2 indicates aft of catalytic converter, #1 indicates pre-converter) to read efficiency of TWC. Normally this sensor will switch between high and low voltage at a noticeably slower rate than the front sensor. This is normal. If the signal received from rear (#2) O2 sensor indicates that the voltage has "stuck" between .425V to .474 V, the PCM determines this sensor is inactive and this code will set.
Your check engine light(CEL), or malfuction indicator lamp (MIL) will be illuminated. There will not likely be any noticeable drivability problems other than the MIL. The reason is this: The rear or post catalytic converter Oxygen sensor does not affect fuel deliver(this is an exception on Chryslers). It only MONITORS the efficiency of the catalytic converter. For this reason, you will likely not notice any engine trouble.
The causes for a P0140 code are fairly few. They could be any of the following:
Shorted heater circuit in O2 sensor. (Usually requires replacement of heater circuit fuse in fuse block also)
Shorted signal circuit in O2 sensor
Melting of harness connector or wiring due to contact with exhaust system
Water intrusion in harness connector or PCM connector
This is a fairly specific problem and shouldn't be too difficult to diagnose.
First, start engine and warm up. Using a scan tool, watch the Bank 1, sensor 2, o2 sensor voltage. Normally the voltage should switch slowly above and below .45 volts. If it does, the problem is likely intermittent. You'll have to wait for the problem to surface before you can accurately diagnose.
However, if it doesn
