Had to do a cat change on my 99 honda prelude, so i change the O2 sensors as well. No more codes but make sure you get the right sensor. I wanted the OEM direct fit and this one came without the plug end. I had to splice the old stuff on to make it work... other that that, Denso works fine and is the factory part on most Honda's.

First the staff were phenomenal, incredibly helpful and will certainly be back. But the product was a let down, the instructions were fine, but didn't have the same setup as in my vehicle, and therefore it was a guessing/matching game that didn't match one or the other but a combination there of. So the product works fine, but the instructions were junk.

Comments about Denso Oxygen Sensor - Universal:

Replace upstream on 5.3l 2001 Silverado. Cleared my fault code I was getting. Made me happy. Installing the driver side upstream sensor was a real pain. Tough to reach and disconnect/reconnect. Passenger side was a breeze. Have not replaced downstream sensors as my code was cleared after upstream replacement.

      Comments about Denso Oxygen Sensor - Universal:

      I bought this sensor because Advance clerk said it was compatible with the 2005 Toyota Camry O-2 sensor. The wiring instructions for this part do not include any Toyota vehicles. Against my better judgment, but trusting the info I received, I installed the sensor only to discover that it would not work.
      Ended up buying another sensor made for the car and now its up and running fine.

        Comments about Denso Oxygen Sensor - Universal:

        The error code on my Toyota said air fuel sensor failure. Was sold an oxygen sensor for the car. They are not the same. If you buy one with the plug attached you would realize immediately. If you have to replace the sensor on the exhaust manifold make sure you aren't looking for 234-9021. It will have a different plug. Also the ohms are 1.2 on the air fuel sensor and 16 on the oxygen sensor (black wires). This is not clearly noted elsewhere I have found. Good luck and the other part worked fine for me.

                      Hi Kracker, glad to assist you! I think you will need two sensors for upstream and two sensors for downstream. However, when it comes to repair and maintenance it is always recommended referring the vehicle owner's manual for the exact specifications to get better and safer results.

                      A:

                      Hi Scottyboy! The P1135 and P1155 are set when the Engine Control Module (ECM) detects a heated oxygen sensor heater circuit malfunction. The possible causes will be faulty Air-Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1, Air-Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 harness is open or shorted, Air-Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection or Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM). However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                      A:

                      Hi G, happy to help you! The main function of the oxygen sensor is to act like the nose of the vehicle. They take readings from the exhaust and convert them into data for the vehicle's computer to process. The computer then decides how to adjust fuel, air and other components to keep pollutants to a minimum and engine performance at a maximum. Upstream Sensor: The upstream oxygen sensor is located before the catalytic converter. This measures the level of pollutants coming directly from the engine. It also senses any raw, unburned fuel coming from the combustion chambers. Downstream Sensor: The downstream oxygen sensor is located directly after the catalytic converter. This sensor measures the pollutants making it through the converter and out of the tailpipe. The data from this sensor is compared to that of the upstream sensor. If the data between the two sensors becomes more similar, the vehicle's computer may trigger a catalyst inefficiency check engine code, which turns on the Check Engine light.

                      A:

                      Happy to answer your question Phil! P0430 reads Catalyst System Efficiency below Threshold Bank 2, typically the first thing to look at would be the catalytic converter. Typically that would be the suspect part, if you can get underneath and shake it and you hear rattling inside that means the internals are degraded and broken up. It is possible there could be other parts that could cause this code such as the Oxygen sensor, Intake air leaks, Fuel injectors may be faulty ,Fuel injector leaks, Spark plugs may be faulty. The sensor you selected will be the downstream left (driver side rear). I suggest having a certified mechanic test the associated parts and confirming before purchasing a catalytic converter.
