Where did you get the idea that PO430 is an oxygen sensor code. That is for bad Catalyst efficiency on bank 2 which is almost always a bad Catalytic Converter.

I was told by the mechanic that inspected my truck. You said almost always a bad catalytic converter, what else could it be?

I've seen it be something else only one time and that was a crack in the exhaust between the 2 oxygen sensors. There is a lot of criteria it has to meet to set that code and it's rarely wrong. There are always exceptions to everything.
