I need to replace the Sensor, Oxygen - Honda (36531-PAA-305)

This answer was rated:

I need to replace the Sensor, Oxygen - Honda (36531-PAA-305) on my 2002 Honda Accord EX which has a SULEV VTEC engine. The owners manual says the engine is from the F23A - Series. Is my engine a 1,2, 3 or 4 version. How can I tell?
JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Honda Accord. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?
Customer: I am replacing the sensor because the check engine light is on

hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you. please allow me a couple of minutes to gather some basic info.


ok, first, how did you verify the O2 sensor is the issue???

what is the code???

To be honest my memory is not what it used to be but I think it was p0135. The Honda service manager told me the the sensor needed to be replaced and the estimated cost to do that was $741

owners manual are made for many cars at a time not for specific vehicles.

the way to tell is by the engine code. you have a ultra low emission vehicle or a california model.

I would shop around for the sensor. way too much money.

the sensor is the most likely failure.. very common
