I would change the fuel filter. Then work from there. A clogged fuel filter could cause a low value on the O2 sensor too.

: I posted last week about a check engine light that translated into a bad O2 sensor. The sensor was replaced and the light went out. Now, I am getting complaints from the family drivers that the Sub has no pickup. You have to really mash the pedal to get any acceleration. It will go 65-70mph but it takes longer to get there.
