If you have an Autozone or Advanced auto in your area, they will read them for free. Just get the number from them. Don't let them diagnose anything or sell you anything as they are not qualified.

They told you nothing. There are at least 30 different 0/2 codes and they all mean something different and rarely is it that you need a new 0/2 sensor.

Get a real code reading would be a start. That or if you are sure there is no spark to one cylinder try swapping a plug with another that works or wire and see if the problem follows. If random this will not prove anything. If one, that spark plug would show something vs another. Spark test that one wire to plug so you can really see it.

New parts can be bad. If just a spark plug was dropped it might have a crack in insulation that didn't show up right away. Keep driving this you'll need more than the source problem so find it as fast as you can,

Without pulling the codes first, here is what you use.
