It could be anything, especially since it's all electronic which is also why they make 30,000 dollar diagnostics machines lol. Anyways yes it could be the O2 sensor but IDK. I'm thinking you need a new governor pressure sensor and or temperature sensor. If it starts raining that will effect atmospheric pressure along with temperature. But if you had a MT2500 you could hook that up to the diagnostics block connector and get those sensor readings and be on your way. But if you run into any problems DO NOT hesitate to contact me.
