I need some additional info. this van started running rough and went into a sleep mode. it came out of it and runs fine now, i was going to change the plugs cause it has 100000 miles on it. I have a hand held and checked for codes, it is showing a P2106 AND P061B codes. so now im wondering if plugs is going to fix the problem or what do i need to look for

The code P2106 is the Fail safe shut down mode. and the PO61 is a resistance problem on the bank 2 HO2S sensor .

I would go ahead and change the plugs as they are due , clear the codes and see what comes up.

can that be a intermittant problem with that sensor and not worry about it at this time?Or change that sensor since it has showed a problem?

I would go ahead and do your tune up and clear codes and see if anything resets.
