Name is XXXXX XXXXX i will assist you the best i can, please Only accept if you are happy with my answer.

Don't replace any O2 sensor , this problem is due to the P0193 code the fuel pressure is to high , remove the vacuum hose from the fuel rail pressure sensor and check for fuel ,replace if fuel found in the vacuum ., this will cause you your O2 sensor codes

Repair the P0193 malfunction and the others should clear up after the repair , clear codes then retest.

Hope this answer was soon enough that you did not get the o2 sensors, as this would of been a good wast of money.

Yes the fuel pressure should be 34psi connected and 43 psi with the vacuum disconnected.
