Question about Ford Escort
The mass air flow sensor is in the ducting to the throttle body. the o2 sensors are on the exhaust pipe. looks very much like a spark plug with a wire extended from itself. the maf will also have wiring associated with it. replacement of 02 sensor requires a special wrench. disconnect battery for a few minutes to clear all previous codes. replace parts and then reconnect the battery. allow computer to relearn in a short trip.

There are four o2 sensors on this truck. one on each side just below the exhaust manifold, and one on each side behind the second catalytic converters. (just about even with the back of the front doors.

cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool

IAT SENSOR IS MOUNTED INSIDE INTAKE AIR HOSE TO THE AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY. THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR IS ALSO MOUNTED TO THE INTAKE AIR HOSE OF THE AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY. O2 SENSORS LOCATION.YOU HAVE 2 # O2 SENSORS.YOU HAVE ONE THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD.THE OTHER SENSOR LOCATED DOWN AT THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

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

I am working on the same problem. This 2000 ZX2 was idling rough and throwing a p171 code (bank 1 too lean). I hooked up a scanner to the OBDII port and you could see the O2 sensor at 0 or very low voltage and not switching and the fuel compensation maxed out which indicates a lean condition. Using a flammable Carb cleaner and the engine running I sprayed around the vacuum hoses until the idle picked up. I found a rubber elbow that connects to the bottom of the intake maniflold and feeds vacuum to the PCV valve. Replacing the the elbow with a suitable replacment from the auto part misc parts cards display had it running smoothly and the O2 sensor switching properly. Since this was happening at idle it was not the fuel filter which can cause a lean condition in upper rpms. It is not the MAF or the O2 sensor since it switches when not at idle. Also check the smaller vacuum lines that go to the evap control from the intake vacuum ports (back of manifold just below the throttlebody, most will be cracking if your car is anything like mine. I have also seen this problem with a bad PCV valve.
