No. Oxygen Sensors do not play a role in transmission operation. Oxygen Sensors monitor the air and fuel mixture of the exhaust and report this to the computer. The computer uses this information to calculate the best fuel-air mixture for optimal fuel economy and engine performance based on current engine conditions like temp and engine load, etc. The oxygen sensors also monitor the catalytic converters to make sure they are "cleaning" the exhaust enough to meet the vehicle's emissions standards. If you are having shifting issues, the problem will more than likely be a sensor or solenoid or internal transmission issue. If you have a check engine light on, but no codes pointing to the transmission, a fluid and filter change might be the best place to start. Keep in mind, if the issue is a sensor or solenoid problem, the fluid and filter change usually will not help. If this is the case, a shop that has experience and a scan-tool that can interact with the transmission will be needed.
