the coolant temp sensor is at the rear of the engine and is a "bad word" to get to. the 3 relays are at the bottom,under the fans. if you remove the driver side fan out of the way( 2 10mm bolts holding the fan) you should have good access to them. they do have locks on them and may be tricky to unplug. there is a 7/16 nut holding the relay plate down. remove and it should be easy to remove them.

I have a ford 2003 windstar that was running very rough when cold and almost stalling. engine light came on. went to autozone and they read the codes for free and told me it was running lean on Bank 2 also. i came home searched for the O2 front sensors online using the info autozone gave me. there are 2 front sensors on my car that need to be replaced at the same time. look for ones that have a direct plug in and don't need wire splicing. the ones without the wiring harness are cheaper but more of a pain, i think.
they were fairly easy to replace. getting access with the wrench was the worst. reset the light by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. seems fine now and the light hasn't come back on.

you need to rent an 02 sensor socket and use a ratchet and the socket to remove it, there are two on the exhaust pipe one before the cat, you can see it on the exhaust pipe and one after. normally the 1at one goes out. cost $75.00 please rate if helpful.

There's one located directly after your catalytic converter and the other one is located before your catalytic converter (somewhere between your headers and that cat)

You will need to reset your timing. You will need a timing light to do that. Follow the directions with the light (inductive pickup timing light) for hooking it up properly (to the number one spark plug wire, that would be the one closest to the drive belt end of the engine).
Next, Remove the timing inspection plug from the transmission so you can view the timing mark and the pointer.
Next, Locate the service check connector (usually behind or above the passenger's kick panel, blue, on a wire, not fixed unit, two holes, connect them with a paper clip).
With the engine running (I'll come back to that) the pointer at the inspection point ought to line up with the mark on the flywheel and appear stationary is the timing is correct.
If you have to adjust the timing (which I think you will) loosen the three retaining bolts on the distributor and rotate the distributor until you get the line up.
Tighten the bolts and recheck the timing.
NOW, how to start the car so you can do that?
Not the first thing you will do, but you will have to turn the crankshaft so that the number one cylinder is at top dead center TDC. That means that you have to put a socket on the crankshaft bolt and turn the engine with a substantial wrench (make sure the car in not in drive). In order to tell when the piston is at it highest point, you will have to remove the number one plug, and insert a thin rod of some sort into the cylinder and watch for it to rise with the piston to its highest point.
Next, continuing to turn the engine very slowly, line up the pointer with the flywheel mark (It shouldn't be far off). This should have you at engine TDC for the compression stroke of the number one piston. Clearly, it would be best if you had somebody to help you.
But before you do any of that, you should determine which plug wire is number one on your distributor and carefully remove the distrib. cap and mark the number one wire position on the edge of the distributor body. The rotor should point at the mark when you have done the TDC procedure. If it doesn't, you will have to loosen the retaining bolts and rotate the body of the distributor until it lines up with the rotor.
That will, I think, get you started. THEN you can use the timing light to properly time the engine.
(A trick that some people use is to slightly loosen the distrib, retaining bolts and slightly rotate the distrib. while someone else is turning the engine over. Sometimes you can hit the spot where the engine will start, then you can carry out the timing light procedure.)
Sorry this is so long. I really hope that it helps you.
