Yes, a faulty O2 sensor can cause lean & rich fuel issues. The passenger side of the engine is the bank 2. Section 1 will be the sensor located before the catayltic converter.

Driver side will be bank 1.. Whichever side of engine that cylinder 1 is located on is bank 1, other side is bank 2. Diagram below shows that your vehicle's cylinder 1 is located on the driver side so the passenger side is bank 2..
