    Oxygen Sensor Replacement - DIY best manual?

    Wondering if I need to change mine on my '95 Ody. How many of O2 sensors are there on the Ody? Guess I should start with what is the best source of info on this car for DIY maintenance. I do some on my '88 BMW 325 and use the Bentley manual, but with the Honda, not sure. Anyway, replacing the O2 sensor made a huge difference with BMW, and wanted to do same on Ody. Thanks for all replies and help.

    Thumbs up

    There's only one on the '95 Ody installed right before the catylitic converter. This makes it easy to grab with perhaps a box wrench or better yet an open socket specifically made for O2 sensors. Just drive the car for a while to heat up the exhaust to make it easier to remove. If you want a good price on one, just get one from http://www.sparkplugssource.com/. They sell the ones made by Denso part number 234-4095. It comes with the wires already attached to it and is a direct plug in. Honda will charge you twice as much. And don't use a Bosch O2 sensor!!

    Thanks for the info and the link, DP. Yes, I agree that with the age of our vehicles, avoid the 'stealer' as much as possible when it comes to puchasing our parts.

    By the way, what's wrong with Bosch O2 sensors? They're great for my BMW. Just curious. Anyone else have an opinion?

    I was wondering the same thing, while I'v never used Bosch 02 sensors I have used spark plugs and cap/rotor with no problems.

    I posed the same question in another honda civic forum and many people said they were no good even though they are cheaper. I'm sure Bosch is fine for European cars. I've had no experience with Bosch 02 sensors myself but better to be safe than sorry.

    Why are you changing the o2 sensor?? Is the check engine light on?? If not, do not waste your time replacing the sensor. You will not feel a difference in performance by just replacing it unless the sensor is "lazy".

    As far as actually replaceing them there pretty easy to get to. On my 98 one is before the cat and there is one right after. When I replaced the manifold on my van I just stuck a big adjustable wrench on it and it came right out.
