the sensor part is inside the exaust manifold. take the engine cover off, look down behind the engine and that metal thingy u see sticking out (some say it looks like a big spark plug) is the O2 sensor. you'll need a 7/8" wrench to get it off

For some reason the only wrench that fit it in our house that i could find would be the adjustable one, thats about a foot long... Well that was fun, a lot of reaching, and giong back and forth. So much sweat on my STB when i was done....

It should be i know. I've done a lot of things on that without too much of a problem, but I cant get a grip on that o2. the exhaust manifold thing is in the way of getting a good a decent turn the damn thing, not to mention the tranny dipstick.
