Default oxygen sensor? o2 sensor?

my check engine light came on today and Advanced ran a test and it came back as the 02 sensor. The guy told me that is the same thing as an oxygen sensor. He said there was two of them and my report came back for the front end one. Does anyone happen to have a picture of what I'm looking for or can you tell me where it would be. I have a 2000 XLT model.

Look on an online parts store or ebay. Spark plug sized thing screwed into exhaust near cat converter.

from your question I suggest you have someone change it, if you f-up wiring it can get expensive.

you should have 3. one on each down pipe and one behind the first cat or second cat. They can be a PITA to get out, I would suggest buy the o2 sensor socket, drive the truck around to get them good and hot, then have at her.

I acutally broke both my o2 sensors in my truck when I did my new clutch. grrrrr. there not HEGO sensors tho. Hopefully there not expensive
