which o2 sensor

my CEL is on, read the codes, don't remember which ones exactly, but i remember one saying air to fuel ratio and another about the oxygen sensors. so i'm almost positive its a sensor. i have an ORP, so which would be? the front sensor or the rear sensor that has the cheater on it? the rear one isn't in the pipe like the front, it has that connecter that keeps it high enough not to be in the pipe airflow. help.

Could be both with the vagueness of your code description. You haven't helped yourself there.

most of those codes that i looked up are about running to rich or lean and o2 sensors. the p1381 is variable timing is advanced which could be just vct selenoid has gone bad or it is something with timing and its bad. thats what i've gotten from this, but thats just from basically reading codes. i'm not exactly sure what it could be
