o2 sensor codes, to buy or not to buy

been in the market for a 135. finally found one and it pulled a check engine the day i was planning on buying..

codes are P3026 & P2243

is this just an o2 sensor issue or is there a underlying cause? would you still buy? car has 66k no warranty all stock

I would test the O2 sensors with a multimeter.

unplug, test their resistance with the car off, and with the car running. Report to us with your findings.

O2 sensors go bad. When you can get to them, the only issue is breaking them loose. Corrosion can make it difficult.
