if the car is a 1.8 then it could be an ecu fault,my astra 1.8 with the same engine had a fault where it said lamda sensor,changed that and no difference,in the end the fault was found to be the ecu,the car was running weak

daz keep it all in the same post mate .you have one sensor its a 16v so one exhaust pipe only the v6 has 2,the link you posted iv had stuff off him its ok,iv also had stuff off the guy i posted you the link for and he was fine too,are you still getting o2 sensor codes,id buy another and take the one you got from the scrapyard back for a refund.

try the maf thing i suggested too,it's just trial and error mate their crap cars to find faults on.
