AT LAST.
Meineke read the code and diagnosed the truck and said that the plugs and wires were old and the fuel injectors dirty, to the point of misfire, and the o2 sensor is not a pressing issue. I have swapped the plugs and wires which were 13 years old and put fuel injector cleaner in the tank. I don't know how long to wait for the mpg to improve, but I did avoid Meineke working on it and losing 400 dollars. They also figured out that the oil pan has a leaking gasket and A drop noticeably falls everytime I look under the car. How long do I have until it is emptied? They say it's a big fix for like 500 bucks.
