This is a misfire on the front cylinder, passenger side. Possible distributor problem,, check spark on that cylinder. Dont worry about any other problems except getting the #2 cylinder working again!! That will most likely take care of that 02 sensor code as well. May need a NEW distributor plus cap and rotor!!

Do an injector test, sounds like it's time, and pressure regulator while you're there. Just finished a '97, customer changed wires, plugs, cap. Injector test showed #7 injector not working. Just a thought, let us know.
