It's the two wire sensor attached to the cylinder head with one bolt, its got a black and a white wire attached to it. Unlikely to be your problem.It could be many things, unfortunately and without experiencing the problem first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests its hard to say.

The computer in your car may have relevant information stored in its memory which will help figure out what is going on. A scan tool is needed to retrieve this information. A professional grade scan tool allows key engine sensor data to be analyzed right off the scan tool without having to do intrusive testing at each sensor.
