Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
I need to know where the O2 sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 is located for a 96 Ford Explorer V8 engine?
The o2 sensor is located by the catalytic converter and anaylyses the exhaust emissions,it may need a tune up but first i'd check all air intake hoses for leaks ,signs of wear etc as if the air/fuel mixture going into engine isn't correct the emissions will not be either ,you can get fuel additives which will clean cylinder,valves and the cat converter so try this first , if the light is still on get the garage to clear the OBD memory and retest drive as a stored code isn't always automaticly erased

Looked up your OBD II code for your Explorer and got the following: Bank 1 Sensor 1
The possible causes are listed below per Chilton: *same result for all engines available on your vehicle
Trouble Code: P0141 (4.0L V6 VIN E Auto)
HO2S-11 Heater Circuit (Bank 1, Sensor 1) Print this code data
Number of Trips to Set Code: 2
OBD II Monitor Type: CCM Details
Indicators: MIL Details
Trouble Code Conditions:
During testing the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) heaters are checked for open and short circuits and excessive current draw. The test fails when the current draw exceeds a calibrated limit or an open or short circuit is detected.

it may be a defective O2 sensor here is th difinition:
P0133 - Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) Slow Response Bank 1 Sensor 1 , this is the sensor on the side of the engine that #1 cylinder is on, it is the sensor before the cat.

B1 means the sensor is located on the same bank of the engine that has the #1 cylinder. B2 is located on the opposite bank.
S1 means the sensor is located BEFORE the catalytic converter
S2 means the sensor is located AFTER the catalytic converter
You didn't say which engine you have, so I've included the diagrams of both 4 cyl and 6 cyl so you can see the banks
