    Under the hood, center, rear engine area, above exhaust pipe flange, mounted in exhaust manifold. The sensor is threaded into the exhaust manifold. It can be difficult to remove unless a special anti-seize compound is coated onto its threads. So make sure you also get some anit-sieze to coat the threads of the replacement. Torque the new sensor to 30 foot-pounds using a special socket which you can get at the auto parts store when you buy the sensor.
