Deep Snow Driving and now Check Engine Light

We had a huge snow storm here in MA. I was driving the car last night in some very deep snow. This morning I noticed a Check Engine Light. I went to Autozone and they told me i have the following codes: P0150, P0151 & P3027. Seems like the first two trgiggered the check engine light caused by a malfunctioning O2 sensor.

First question I had was does anyone know of a 4.8i DIY for this, and secondly is it possible I hit the sensors with the snow and it came loose?

^ yeah. Just "bad sensor" so buy new sensors and follow the DIY, eh?

Ive had issue were road debris has damaged the little junction box where the O2 sensors connect. Get under the car and look.
