Are you sure the sensor failed, or is there something else in the fuel or ignition system causing it to run rich or lean? Sometimes an O2 sensor fault is the sensor itself, but sometimes it is the...

Fuel pressure was good while you checked it. Maybe not so good at other times? CEL scan as a "misfire"? Still could be a low-pressure issue. Not saying to replace it, just check.

You guys may be right, its just an O2 sensor. But so many other things can cause a bad o2 reading on an obdI motor and not throw a code. I'm just cheap. So I do as much as I can to confirm...

No, not worth it.

Really not worth it unless going for a long-term truck.
