It is located on top of the engine under the throttle body, it sucks, plan on a whole day if you are a good machanic.

I just got done replacing the O2 sensors in my 99 Cougar due to throwing a P0135 malfunction code. There's 3. Facing the engine there's one in the front coming off of the front header, which is easy to get to. Another more tricky one if between the engine and the fire wall on the rear header pipe. The third is under the vehicle behind the transmission pan on top of the exhaust. In order to replace the O2 sensor near the fire wall you will need to remove the 4 retaining bolts for the ECM module and move it out of the way. Additionally you will need to remove the 2 retaining nuts for a wiring harness that is seated below the ECM module. Pay close attention to the connectors because the front and under vehicle O2 sensors have round connectors the one near the firewall has a squared connector. I was able to replace all 3 by myself in approximately 35 minutes. If your throwing a O2 heater malfunction code it is most likely going to be the sensor near the firewall. make sure that you know someone with a code reader so the code can be cleared. If you're do for an emmissions inspection be sure to put at least 40 miles on the new O2 sensor with different types of driving (e.g. highway, coasting, decellerated turns and rapid acceleration). Gotta love project cars for your kids!!

Engine miss can be caused by lots of things. f this has coil on plug ignition system it cold have a bad coil. This can be checked with a cheap "spark checker" that looks like spark plu with the center electrode removed and a aligator clamp welded to the side of the nut. It takes 30-35k volts to fire this thing so if your coil will fire this then it will fire the plug. Then check the sides of the spark plug boots for white spots where it has been arching out to ground. I good then it could be a dirty injector with a bad spray pattern, vacuum leak on that cylinder, but one the first things to check is to make sure you have good copression. no compression or intermittent compression from poor seating/sticking valves, weak springs, the list goes on, no or low conpression= misfire . need to figure which cylinder is causing first.

Several car wax companys make kits to clean the outside of the headlight lenses. Check your local parts stores. It's usally pretty hard to remove the len, they are often glued on.
