Sounds like you've covered most bases! How does the engine perform... does it run ok? Were both lambdas replaced? Has all the wiring to the lambdas been checked? I have heard that problems with coolant temperature sensor can cause problems – if the ECU doesn't know how hot/cold then engine is it can throw up all sorts of odd faults. What does your garage say? (Assuming you've been using a garage to do the repairs)
