Engine Performance problem
1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 95000 miles

my car check engine light came on said o2 sensor upstream malfunction but before I changed it the car would run fine until it heated up then it would idle funny once the engine warmed and die on me every time I came to a complete stop it a 5speed manual. Now heres the weird part I changed the o2 sensor but with every new sensor I put in the car either wont start or runs like miss firing and idiling poorly cant even drive it why with every sensor I try it runs like worse but when I put the bad sensor in it runs fine before it warms up

Do you

Check and test the idle speed controller, Mass air flow and throttle position sensor-also clean out the EGR and PCV valves

The oxygen will not cause an engine to stall if there's a problem to it, it will cause the engine to run rich that's all its gonna do-

Why don't you check the voltages on it if its switching accordingly-could be the computer itself, wrong type O2 sensor

Im just confused because the o2 sensor thats throwing the code seems to be the only one that makes my car start and run somewhat decent I just dont get why when I put a new one in you would think it would run better but its runs worst its weird
