O2 sensors on 1998 ford windstar

1998 Ford Truck Windstar 3.8L SFI 6cyl, there are 4 oxygen sensors on the Windstars They are divided into 2 banks of 2. Bank 1 is the for the rear 3 cylinders of the engine - Bank 2 is for the front 3 cylinders. Bank 1 / Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below, in the pipe, the exhaust manifold on the back of the engine.

REMOVE TIP: you may have to bend part of the transmission heat shield out of the way - be sure to put it back when done.
Bank 1 Sensor 2 (downstream) is located just past the drivers side catalytic converter.
Bank 2 Sensor 1 (upstream) is located just below the exhaust manifold, in the pipe, at the front of the van - access is from the top.
Bank 2 Sensor 2 (downstream) sensor is located just past the passenger side catalytic converter.

NOTES: * Use lots of penetrating oil - allow to soak - to make removal easier and avoid damaging the exhaust pipe

Hope this help; TY for using Fixya (remember rated and comment this).

1998 Ford windstar oil leaked out and now there is a nocking sound on the bottom of of the engine.

If you lost all or almost all of your oil and happened to start and run the engine before you discovered the oil loss,you have probably spun a bearing. It needs to be checked by a professional but you are probably in the market for another motor. Hope this helps.

Where is the oil sending unit on a Windstar 1998 3.8 engine?

Should be close to the oil filter. It will be a metal tube sticking out with 1 wire running to a pod at the end of it.
