You should be able to use Google Webmaster tools to find any broken links on your site or any pages that are sending a 404 error.

Another idea, would be to simply create a page (or recreate if the original page was deleted) with that same url extension on your site, to capitalize on the spot in search engines. Theoretically, that page should still retain it's spot in search engines as it's already indexed.

You would want to ping that page so Google knows there is new content and can come index the page again and reclassify it as something other than a 404 (page not found).

Apart from Google webmaster tools you can also subscribe to a website monitoring services.

This will inform you as soon as they notice a 404 page. Apart from that you will also get many additional benefits like website downtime, broken links etc.
