They are all located in your exhaust system you have bank1 and bank 2 sensors 1 and 2 with a (4) oxygen sensor system. They are pretty simple to replace they kinda look like spark plugs screwed into the exhaust sytem with wire attached to them with a plug at the ends of the wires, usually the wire are colored white grey and black .Approximately 4 thin wires on each sensor. Easy to find start from the top of the engine and follow the manifolds downwards toward the tail pipe/pipes. There will be two on either side of the manifold before the converters and 2 after the converters. All you need is an oxygen sensor socket and A ratchet. The socket had a slot that allow you ro put over the sensors and wires or there is a "crow foot" type looks like a Brake line wrench work well too. You may need some liquid wrench/.WD40 maybe rusted a little bit. Counter clockwise to loosen and clockwise to install. Good Luck hope that I Fixed ya. Get back in contact if you need more help

You will need a special socket to remove the 02 sensors and a good solvent to spray on the threads to help break them loose. The socket can be purchased at most auto parts stores.

Oxeygen sensors

the 171 means that you are running to lean on either air or fuel. Do you have any upgrades to the fuel or air system? 131 is the first oxygen sensor on your vehicle and that is typically right past the headers.
