What can cause an oxygen sensor code?
An engine misfire, leaky exhaust valve or a leak in the exhaust manifold gasket that allows air into the exhaust may also cause this type of code to be set. If an O2 sensor has failed, especially prematurely, the cause often is contamination. via
When should oxygen sensors be replaced?
Since O2 sensors are so critical to your car's system, it's recommended to replace your sensors every 60,000 to 90,000 miles. There are a few signs that will help you know when it's time to take your vehicle in to have the sensor replaced. via

Is replacing oxygen sensor important?
A failing oxygen sensor negatively impacts the car's fuel combustion and delivery systems. If it's not working properly, the oxygen sensor will allow too much fuel to be injected into the engine, which will manifest in significantly lower gas mileage compared to the usual gas mileage of your car. via
Can a bad O2 sensor cause a car to run lean?
Yes the O2 sensor can cause the vehicle to run lean. What the O2 sensor does is read the amount of air entering the engine and sends that information to the computer, the computer reads this information and determines how much fuel the engine needs. via
