There are dozens of potential causes for your problem. You didn’t specify the particular 02 sensor and cam sensor codes, so it’s difficult for me to provide much advice. A problem with the timing (such as a stretched chain) could cause both an cam code and an 02 sensor code, but I would need more information to make an educated guess. Driveability concerns like this can be difficult to diagnose, given the complexity of modern vehicles. I recommend having a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose and repair the problem.
