Default 2002 Civic LX Check engine light?

I have a 2002 Civic LX auto the codes I got from autozone were p1298, p0171, p0131 I was just wondering if the o2 sensor can cause all this cause the exaust on the car stinks and the at times it hesitates when I first press on the gas I was wondering if it can be the o2 sensor or the eld any advice

Btw it's an automatic 1.7

Code P1298 deals with the Electronic Load Distribution (ELD) system (basically, how the car manages electrical power). Probably on due to a bad body ground for the wiring. A technician will need to check this for you.

Code P0171 and P0131 are where you should start. The P0131 code is for a problem with the primary oxygen sensor (first one in the exhaust pipe immediately after the engine). Check that one and replace it if needed. The P0171 code will probably go away once the oxygen sensor problem is fixed. Then clear the MIL codes (code P1298 will probably come back until it is addressed).
