this is the problem with code readers they bwill tell you the code and sometimes even have a reset feature. However they do not tell you the parameters and don't have an drivability feature so you can not test the ecm and all the sensors or modules while engine is running. diagnostic scan tools are very expensive and hard to use unless you have been trained to do so and PEP BOYs is not what I call real reliable mechanics to begin with. Now I concure with toddG on his reasoning in what might be the potential fault. if your vehicle is running rich or lean your O2 sensor will pick this up on the exaust side, however it is not the sole sensor responsible for the ecm adjusting the fuel air mixture.. you stated that you have switched out several o2 sensors and the fuel pressure regulator, but there is also you mass air flow sensor, your TPS sensor, as well as your map sensor these are worth checking out and just because a faulty sensor is the problem doesn't mean you will get a code each time. the system is built with redundancy in order to keep the vehicle running. in order to get the best possible diagnois take it to a shop where they have a full diagnostic scanner this will have not only OBD1 and OBD2 but cam protocol as well. while the tech is scanning the vehicle he will be able to see how the engine is performing under realtime conditions. please rate this as well as change the rating for toddg because he did offer a valid suggestion

there are two 02 sensors actually on the engine. bank one is cylinders 1 3 5 bank 2 is 2 4 6. it controls the fuel to air ratio, if the O2 sensor is not working, the engine goes into limp mode, which means it is just putting as much fuel as possible into the cylinder, which will effect your gas mileage.
The O2 sensor may be fine, the pigtails off the 02 sensor go bad, the connection. I had in my car, i change the 02 sensor twice, then I found someone said the pigtails may be bad, so I cut the cars wiring harness pigtail, and the one coming off the 02 sensor, and directly wired it with the original truck 02 sensor, and it worked. all 02 sensors look similar, they screw in the side of the engine, and just have 4 wires coming off of it.
Try your origional one, and just bypassing the original wire connector, what I did was cut it off, skinned the wires, put some heat shrink rap on it, combined the wires together soldered them together, and heated the wire shrink rap, so that way it is water proof. car works perfect now.

Hi, there are a number of trouble codes associated with the O2 sensors. Some indicate a sensor failure and others indicate a different problem. Can you tell me the trouble code you are getting?
