One symptom is a fuel miliage loss. Typically a "Check engine light" will trigger. It can be watched with a scanner to see how it's waveform looks. If it doesn't continually change and is more of a flatline curve, then it is weak or bad.

So, following some advice given on for earlier model ford rangers, I did go to the local autozone dealer who scanned the truck free of charge and informed me that the oxygen sensor had failed.
