O2 sensor dead after 6 months???

My car started hesitating on me again. It had some other problems too but those are already taken care of.

First thing I did was test the O2 sensor, and if I remember correctly, the values from it are upposed to be between 0 and 1V, mine reads 3.4V and more, and I remember it did not do this before, my question is why would it die so fast?

It's not a bosch part, but it had the same specs and was much cheaper, I guess you get what you pay for, go figure....

It makes sense really cause if the O2 says the engien is burning so much the computer tries to lean out the mixture as far as possible and that's why it hesitates so much....

just wanted to share what I found.
