So i'm not sure other than I was told by a ford tech. that most times it is a solenoid sticking and to start with it but they didn't tell me were to locate this part on the engine??? can anyone point me in the proper location
It is on the upper intake manifold. Look for disconnected linkage rods to the actuators.

Codes that tell you your engine is running lean can be caused by a number of things. First thing to do (and cheapest) is to get some fuel injector cleaner and run it for awhile. Dirty injectors can cause these codes. I recommend lucas brand myself but there are several different cleaners to choose from. The second thing is checking your vacuum lines. If there is a leak it can cause the engine to **** in too much air and cause the codes. Anything beyond that gets into alot of mechanical work and should be done by a certified technician

I believe that your car only has 1 exhaust pipe. If that's the case, then sensor 2 will be located after the catalytic converter

Testimonial: "thanks for your time. "
There are some Electric Vacuum solenoids on top of the motor. They have vacuum lines running down to some manifold vacuum pods. When the solenoids stick, the vacuum does not shut off and the pods remain open.
You can check for electric continuity on the solenoids. If they check out, the internal parts may be stuck. You can disconnect the vacuum lines and see if one still has pressure when the engine is off. The solenoid that runs to it is probably open. You may be able to work some WD40 into the solenoids and free them up. If the solenoids have no continuity, they are bad but remeber to check them with and without vacuum.
Remember to reset the computer by disconnecting the NEG cable 10 minutes or the defect will falsely report 25 -35 Startups with the wrong info.
