It mounts in the rear manifold at back of motor just after the 3 cylinders piping converges into the single outlet - there will be a silver cover on it and a wire (usually black that comes to a connector about 6 " away. You can use a wrench (about 1" size) or a specific tool to remove it. Do this with engine cold or the threads will risk being damaged. The new sensor comes with special beaded lubricant for thethreads on the O2 sensor. Be sure to use it BUT be careful not to get any on the sensor itself. The job can be bit aggravating but not too terribly difficult.

You need to remove the serpentine belt and alternator in order to get the crank sensor; one 10mm bolt holds it. It is easy to replace.

I should be just above the brake pedal where the shaft of the pedal pushes up against the switch. It should be easy to adjust or replace

The replacement of a MAF sensor will be different for vehicle models and brands. The MAF sensor bolts onto most engines, and is easy to change.
