I have a 2008 Hyundai santa fe and I read a p0131 on a scan tool. where is the oxygen sensor bank1 sensor?

code p 0131 refers to heated oxygen (HO2S) sensor 1 bank 1 ---low voltage ===causes --exhaust leak--wiring short to ground ---HO2S sensor ---ECM
the HO2s) is the sensor in the exhaust manifold before the cat converter and bank 1 is closest to the fire wall
the exhaust leak could be in the mesh covered section of the exhaust pipe from the manifold to the cat converter as they crack and that will throw out the HO2s reading back to the ECM

replace the HO2S using the correct socket so the wires do not get damaged
for the first one check for an exhaust leak in the flex section of the exhaust pipe under the steel mesh

Try spraying the exhaust with a squirt bottle. You should see bubbles where its leaking. If its a 4.0L however it is probably the manifold.

I need instructions to fix an exhaust leak

This is a bit of a loaded question. I can get you instructions, however, how do you know you have an exhaust leak? If confirmed you have an exhaust leak, which side of the engine? Or, is it down further? Is there a hole in the muffler?
Best thing to do is to make sure you have a can or two of PB Blaster to spray the nuts to reduce the chance of them breaking. Makes sure you have whatever gaskets needed to replace the ones in between the exhaust components you are disassembling. If there is a crack in the manifold, you will most likely want to look at a junk yard for another one as one from Suzuki will be costly and the chances of there being one available in a Dorman aftermarket brand are slim.

How do i find out out where my exhaust leak is its all i can smell in my car i think it coming through the vents?

Do what they do at Midas/Monro/Meineke: listen, look and (carefully) feel. Let the sound guide you to the general area, then look for a hole/holes, and if none are seen, hold your hand close to, but not touching, the hot exhaust pipe(s), feeling for the rush of hot exhaust gases. Since you may not have a lift like these commercial outfits, or a handy trench to stand in (like JiffyLube) you'll have to jack up the car by at least two of its four jacking points to fully examine the length of your exhaust system.
Since you suspect exhaust intrusion into the cabin through the dashboard vents, you may choose to begin your exhaust system inspection at the exhaust manifold, which collects exhaust from each of the cylinders and conducts it to a single pipe leading to the catalytic converter.

There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

Manual shift mode and exhaust leak

You most likely have a broken wire in the steering column that goes to the manual shift mode switch. And as far as the exhaust leak goes, you need a new manifold. They crack and leak. Common problem.
