You can pull the battery out of the car once running and it wont do ****.
The car runs off the alternator not the battery.
If you had a stuffed alternator and the battery terminals were loose then it wont start again.

And yes sounds like the O2 sensors playing up.

Start your car up and just undo the negative battery terminal.

Ozzie if you disconnected the battery you'd break the circuit and your car would stall. Carby cars can run with a flat battery because they don't need any power for the ecu and such. Some diesels can run without a battery because they don't need spark.

Don't mean to be lecturing or anything tho
