I've lived in the house for a year, not sure how old the furnace is. First time it fires up it will heat up the house, but after that it will only kick on for about 5 or 10 secs then kick back off.

More than likely you will need to have a certified HVAC tech come and perform a diagnostic and properly fix the problem. Trying to do it yourself if you are not properly trained could be dangerous and make the problem far worse.
In the meanwhile you can try to generally ascertain the nature of the problem by looking for the LED error/fault code indicator on the furnace (some brands use the term error and some use fault). To find the LED indicator as well as understand what the codes indicate go here: http://www.ehow.com/list_6543923_york-furnace-error-codes.html.
In terms of finding the heat sensor, I couldn't find anything for a heat sensor, but there is a lot of material for a flame sensor. Is that what you mean? If you go here you can see what it looks like and its location: http://www.justanswer.com/hvac/2wdm0-york-diamond-80-central-air-conditioner-heater.html.
Hope this helps.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
