My 98 has been doing this for the last 25,000 miles. scan tool sez its the #1 bank #2 oxygen sensor. Every time I ask a parts guy about this, ie which one it is, I get a different story, latest parts guy asked me how long the wires were, now If I knew which sensor it was, I would be quite willing to measure the wires, as I do know they are quite resistance sensitive. I 'll be buying my parts elsewhere, and keep paying for the worn out sensor at the gas pump...
