MAZDA MILLENIA SENSOR PROBLEM

1998 Mazda Millenia • 155 miles

I have a 1998 mazda millenia 2.5. Check engine light came on, there were 2 codes p1173 and 300 misfire, I replaced plugs, cap, rotor, wires, check fuel pressure it was 38psi at a idle w/regulator hose attached, cleared codes drove and light came back on with both same codes, idle is low at 650rpm in park with a skip, could a bad o2 cause it to skip, idle. What should I try next?
