Default Pt cruiser 1.6 idle not stable

Hi all

I have problems in my pt cruiser.
Idle seems not to be as stable as it should and when I start running the motor seems to go down and loose power.

I am not expert on it but I checked the 02 sensor with a OBD2 tools and it goes up and down all the time un idle

Is it normal?

Any help?

Be aware most members here have 2.4 engines.

Engine light on? If so what are the codes?

How many miles?

Has it gradually been losing power? If so you might want to check and see if your exhaust is restricted.
