    the front one, IIRC, is in the exh. manifold, pass. side. In the uppipe, is the EGT probe. The rear O2 is in the TOP of the rear cat.

    Inspect all the connections, make sure you have the right map flashed in there, and if it's still there, reset the ECU to see if it comes back. If it does, replace the sensor.

    the exhaust mani is the front O2. the rear O2 is in the downpipe.

    probably, the coolant overflow reservoir. the cold-side pipe may travel from top to bottom, btwn radiator and motor, on driver's side..

    there are a few options, for replacing the stock overflow tank.. I, personally, went to AdvanceAutoParts, and picked up one of their universal tanks, and mounted it on the pass. side strut tower, but I'd also moved the BCS and stuff that was there, originally. Some of the aftermarket ones put the tank behind the driver's headlight..

    bolted to the radiator, on the driver's side. it's white, yellow cap.
    you can't miss it.


    seen here, lower-right, between radiator and engine.
