I need to change my o2 sensor and started looking around to see how much the part would cost me. When they started asking all these questions, I don't even know where its located. How do I find the sensor?

Front a stop position, a thud is heard from the right rear when accelerating quickly, only from 1 to 2 gear. Dose seem to be more noticeable the more quickly you accelerate. If you consciously accelerate slowly, there is no sound.
