Are you absolutely sure that you replaced the correct side sensor. It has two front (upstream) oxygen sensors. Aftermarket intake or exhaust components can cause this code. Poor connection at O2 wires possible. Could be wrong part number sensor.

Car starts up but dies immediately.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove any moisture problem in the fuel.

Clean / replace air filter.

If there is check engine light on then please pull code.

Start at Changing your sparkplugs wires (if you are performing this on your own replace one by one to prevent mix-up). If problem still persists, have coil pack checked or replaced. Hopefully this helps!!
