The oxygen sensor in your 2001 Honda Accord is responsible for reading the percent of oxygen in the spent exhaust gases coming out of the engine. The sensor then sends the information to the car's computer and the computer uses it to adjust the air/fuel mixture at the fuel injectors. Changing an O2 sensor will keep the car running smoothly, or correct idle, starting and fuel economy issues in your Accord.

Things you need

JackJack standsOxygen sensor socketRatchet

Instructions

1 Raise the front of your Accord with a jack and position a set of jack stands under the frame rails. Lower the jack, setting the car securely on the stands, then remove the jack.

2 Locate the O2 sensor in the exhaust pipe just behind the catalytic converter. Follow the wiring harness coming off the top of the sensor up to the wiring harness connector on the car's wiring harness. Depress the locking tab and separate the two halves of the connector.

3 Position an oxygen sensor socket over the sensor, then turn it counterclockwise with a ratchet to remove it from the exhaust pipe. Discard the old sensor and thread the new one into the hole in the pipe.

4 Tighten the oxygen sensor with the oxygen sensor socket and ratchet, turning it clockwise. Route the wiring harness from the new sensor up to the connector on the car's wiring harness. Push the connector from the O2 sensor into the connector on the car until the locking tab engages.

5 Position a jack under the front end of the car and lift the car off the jack stands. Remove the jack stands from under the car, then lower the jack, carefully setting the car on the ground. Start the car and verify that it is running properly.
