I am in my upper 30's, have a wife and 2 sons. I farm, fish, hunt, build, and coach youth soccer.

I try my best to be here everyday starting at 3pm central. Rating one of the answers, not the questions, you receive is required. Please let me know if your not pleased prior to rating so I can try to help a different way. God Bless and have a great day.
so, 2005 Suzuki forenza, so far I have replaced the cam sensor, o2 sensor #1, coil pack, plugs, wires... the problem kind of came out of noware rite around 60 mph on the freeway the car begins to hesitate and full on missing wanting to die, jerking (this happens once you reach speed and let off the accelerator enough to maintain your speed, probably rite around max advance) the research I did, along with the codes pulled led me to change the parts listed... many people with these same problems had a cracked head or blown head gaskets and apparently this car has a problem with cracked heads.... currently: I have all of the same symptoms, with brand new plugs they were blackened and caked with carbon... all 4 after 40 min. of driving, compression test was 190-195psi on all cylinders and I pulled codes: p0300- random misfire p0138- o2 circuit high voltage bank 1 sensor 2 p0131- o2 circuit low voltage bank 1 sensor 1 could an o2 sensor cause these problems???? the car jerks violently and sputters BADLY the research I did leads me to a cracked head, but the tell tail sighs say its something in the ignition or fuel... please help kris p.s. I ordered the o2 sensor #2 and coolant temp sensor referenced in previous post, I will replace first thing 10/9/2015 morning
Will your scan tool allow for monitoring the air fuel ratio to see if the computer is commanding the fuel injectors to spray for a longer period or shorter period than desired? Did your parts replacing resolve the codes you have, or did they return?
The check engine light flashes when the computer detects there is a misfire. Let me know on the results of the fuel trim monitoring.
I just need to know what the trims show while idling at operating temperature.
