Hello mrsalbert, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing

Depending on which oxygen sensor you are looking for...there are several of them throughout the Exhaust System. I will start out by giving you a brief description of what and oxygen sensor is, and they're general purpose.

Four Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) are mounted in the exhaust system where they monitor the oxygen content in the exhaust stream. There is an oxygen sensor mounted in each exhaust manifold and one on each end of the catalytic converter. the oxygen sensor located in the front exhaust manifold is the Bank 2 Sensor 1 (Front) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the rear exhaust manifold is the Bank 1 Sensor 1 (Rear) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the Y-pipe ahead of the catalytic converter is the Bank 1 Sensor 2 (Pre-converter) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the catalytic converter outlet is the Bank 1 Sensor 3 (Post-converter) sensor.

An oxygen sensor acts like a battery because it creates its own signal voltage once it reaches operating temperature. This voltage is produced when the oxygen content in the exhaust stream is different than the oxygen content in the atmosphere. A lean condition (high oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a low voltage (near 0 volts) and a rich condition (low oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a high voltage (near one volt). The PCM provides a reference signal voltage (0.45 volt) and a ground to the sensor. The PCM reference voltage is necessary because the oxygen sensors do not provide their own voltage until they reach operating temperature.

the oxygen sensors also incorporate a heating element inside of the sensor housing. This heating element is energized with the ignition On and allows the sensors to reach operating temperatures quickly. The PCM can then use oxygen sensor information sooner after engine start-up.

The PCM uses oxygen sensor information during Closed Loop operation to constantly adjust fuel control to reduce exhaust emissions. Because the oxygen sensors provide information sooner after engine start-up, exhaust emissions are reduced. Faulty oxygen sensors will cause various driveability conditions and will set a DTC.

That being said...I uploaded a .pdf for you of pictures showing the locations of ALL the oxygen Sensors on your Vehicle. You can download it by clicking HERE.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!

If you can't access it from from the engine compartment you will need to jack the car up and support it. You need a 7/8 box end wrench. Sometimes it take a special wrench due to the angle not accessable with a strait wrench. Its on the exhaust pipe in front of the cat

SOURCE: Low Idle and O2 sensor replacement on Montero

The O2 sensor is mounted to the exhaust; you'll need to get under the truck (jack-stand please) to locate. If it sits where a 89-92 sits it will be in the exhaust under the passenger side. Follow the wiring, on most it carries over the transmission to a wiring block under the driver's sie of the truck (again this is all under the truck) As for the low idle I do not believe there is anything to be change. If the idle is low it is due to other conditions... injectors, sensor, low compression, timing or such.
I hope this may have helped,
