You are buying cheap gas and ethanel based gas. Every mechanic I have talked to tells me that is mostly the cause but most will not come out an say it is. I now am more careful on the gas I buy and have not replace one since. Your car is a 92 so it can't handle the alcohol like the newer cars can.

you need to download the blink codes that are stored in the onboard self-diagnostic control unit (PGM-ECU) in order to find out what is behind the check engine light coming on. There are over 50 reasons why the light can come on for your vehicle. The 02 sensor is just one of them so you're odds are 1 in 50 you got it right by throwing an 02 sensor at it and hoping it fixes the problem.































so spend the few dollars to have a mechanic pull the blink codes. then you can either pursue a diagnostic based on the fault or have the mechanic do so.































on your car, the OBD diagnostic connector is behind the passenger side kickpanel. you need to jump the two terminals to get the blink codes.































so don't assume you have an 02 problem and that the 'O2 keeps going out'. chances are you have a different problem.































hope that helps
