My thoughts exactly. Just replaced mine as it was doing the exact same thing.

Mine did not initially throw a code. Once the problem became bad enough it eventually threw a SES light and a code directing me to the proper sensor/bank.

Glad you found your problem. My power increased significantly after I replaced mine. But after spending the last week reading this forum I've come to the conclusion that I should be preparing to do all sorts of other maintenance and I expect she's gonna run even better!

EDIT: mine has not died once since I replaced the CPS.
