O2 sensor is locationed at outlet of cat. converter toward rear of car.

The 4 pin connector is located inside the car on the other side of the rubber plug that the wires go through.
The plug is only accessible after removing the rubber plug. If you are replaceing the sensor with a Honda sensor the new one comes with the rubber plug.
Accessing the sensor this way is easier than trying to get from inside the car since it is under the floor.

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.
