One of the problems is you have one of the most troublesome vehicles out there. Any way, fuel injectors sound like they may be dirty, there are places that can clean them, otherwise some fuel injection cleaner threw the gas. Fuel pump could be another, fuel pressure should be checked. Timing is associated with back-firing, possible cam sensor, maybe have the vehicle scanned for codes to help point you into the right direction.

Thanks I was thinking crank shaft sensor

It scans as oxygen sensor but yea I'm sure that wasn't right cause I replaced it

Still could be may other things yet tho, have the timing checked also.

The codes should have ben reset then to see if they repeat. The codes don't lie. But on that, do you remember what the code was? Sure the 02 sensor could have ben bad but again there are many other reasons to cause that code.

No they didn't tell me the codes just tested it said oxygen sensor..yea ur right so many things could be wrong

Possible causes - Faulty Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 - Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 harness is open or shorted - Front Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 circuit poor electrical connection - Inappropriate fuel pressure - Faulty fuel injectors - Intake air leaks may be faulty - Exhaust gas leaks........................................... So I think you may have a fuel system issue. Start by having the fuel pressure checked.
