I may be hoping to much that I found the problem, I will let you all know tomorrow after the real test.

The test will be tomorrow when the wife drives it to work and sits at some stop lights.

It looks like you've found the problem. This would be a new one, at least for me. Proof once again that there is no replacement for one's own hunches and eyeballs. One thing though, before she drives off in the morning, please clear all the error codes first. You can recheck when she gets back and see if the o2 code stays away.

How is the rumble of your idle that you mentioned earlier? Is there any change ?
