The oxygen sensor, (also called the lambda sensor), is right after the exhaust manifold, which is on the back side of the engine, so you need to reach it from underneath.
However, it is expensive, so you may want to take it out carefully and simply have it checked first.
With an ohmmeter you can tell if it is burned out.
0 or infinite ohms is bad.
I believe it should be around 1500 ohms, but don't remember exactly.
The other thing is deposits like carbon can make it ineffective, and can be cleaned sometimes.
If you put a new one in, a little antizsieze is a good idea, but don't put on much, because you don't want to contaminate the sensor. Just enough to make removal easier. Remove and clean it every year.
