Misfires and oxygen sensor?

I just had my CEL checked out and it gave 9 codes, all the cylinders were misfiring and my primary oxygen sensor is bad. I ordered a new o2 sensor im going to pick up tomorrow and install myself, but the guy said that if i dont fix the misfire problem and just install the o2 sensor, i'll mess up the o2 sensor. Is that true? I thought the misfiring was caused from the bad o2 sensor? What should I do? I installed ngk iridium spark plugs myself about 2 months ago..

Re: Misfires and oxygen sensor?

I know it can damage your catalytic converter, dunno about the sensors. I'm going to say its possible.

As far as the misfire, it could be quite a few things.
