The year of the truck may help.Are you sure you have a F-150 with a 4.0 v-6 because I have never seen one.If you have a 4.0 it's mounted on top of the oil pump drive near the back of the engine.Only certain years have them.

Just because a codes says something is wrong with the info from a sensor, doesn't mean the sensor is bad. The circuit needs to be trouble shooted. In the case of the O/2 sensors, the code says they are reporting too lean. Why does that mean the sensor is bad. Maybe your engine really IS too lean. Look for vacuum leaks or other causes of too lean a mixture. On a ford, the cam sensor is usually where the distributer used to be.

You should check fuel pressure when you ahve lean codes also and perhaps clean the MAF sensor inside with brake cleaner spray.If the code is for bank 1 on the other truck you need to look harder on the side of the engine with #1 cylinder because that's bank 1.An exhaust leak before the O2 sensor can set a lean code also.
