There are 4 O2 sensors....the important ones for managing your mileage...they determine how much fuel to send to the cylinders based on a predetermined ratio for proper combustion. They're located by the exhaust manifold and are more involved for removal...recommend a professional for those.

The other 2, are located underneath the chassis, on either side of the drive shaft and are screwed into each of the exhaust pipes prior to the catalytic converter. You'll need a slotted socket wrench which is available at any auto parts store. You'll remove the sensor fairly easily. Note the color of the cable, as you'll replace white, (right side) with white, and red, (left side) with red. On top of the engine on the right side, you'll see the same colored cables plugged into their respective ports. Remove one first and replace it before the other so as to avoid confusing which port goes to which plug. The cables are secured by means of a clip that you'll need to carefully pop loose with a flathead screwdriver. After replacing the plugs underneath, drop a flexible wire, such as a 12ga. solid core wire about 6' long along the firewall following the path used by the original sensor's respective wire and secure the new replacement wire to it and pull up gently. Once plugged in, you can secure the new wire, using a plastic wire tie, to the other wires there.

Probably something in the wiring harness or the engine computer.
A mechanic would watch the data stream from the O2 sensors to troubleshoot. You should also have trouble codes for the sensor in question.

While driving home the over drive light started to blink. 1997 f150 4x4 4.6L manual shift 4x4 auto trans. check engine light came at the same time. I read the code last night and said cylinder 5 miss fire.... sounds like you've got it covered for now,because those 02sensors may be bad,bank1 or bank2,since you got both on order,you should be allright.just be sure to reset your computer when you replace each electronic sensor.disconnect positive cable from battery for 10minutes after replacement,but did'nt sound like i had to tell you that? hope this helps and thank you for choosing p.s. the misfire may be the 02sensors,whether it's bank1 or bank2 remains unsolved until you've got the codes?also check your main fuse box,just to make sure that you've not got a relay that's loose due to off road or just a bump in the road. thanks!
