Bank 1 is the frt side exhaust manifold (did they say bank 1 sensor 1?),you can start by replacing that sensor,i would check the intake for leaks ,the gm 6cly. are known for bad intake gaskets,you will see oil coming out form the frt or rear of the intake,also check your atifreeze overflow bottle for bronwish sludge,which means that the oil is mixing with the antifreeze.A leaking intake could cause that lean condition.

i wouldn't be looking at the o2 sensors! look at the coolant temp sensor! when the car is cold it doesn't correct fuel & air ratio until it is warm so it is not looking at the o2's till then! if the sensor is bad and telling the computer it is warm when it is cold them it would be leaned out and run like that then when the car gets warm it's fine because the sensor is still saying it's warm! would be the opisite if it went bad and was telling the computer it was cold! that is a sure sign of the temp sensor being bad! good luck

Testimonial: "Thanks. I'll look into that. Coolant sensors are a lot cheaper than O2 sensors too. :-)"
It is probably the sensor before the cat. if it has a heater. The heater circuit going bad is a common problem, it does not affect the way the car runs after it warms up, it is an emission device to heat the O2 sensor up quicker than the hot exhaust gas would. It should be replaced because it will keep your check engine light on and you would not be able to pass an emission test.

O2 is the symbol for oxigen so it could well be the airflow sensor this is usually in the air duct between the air filter and the intake manifold should usually not be difficult to replace.
