How to disconnect o2 sensors honda accord dx 2005
Follow the wire from the o2 sensor and you will see the connector, squeeze the end tab and pull lightly. Disconnecting 02 sensor due to the check engine light is ON is not recommended and will cause you to loose and sacrifice lots of gas mileage. for example, If you getting 22 on the highway, you will get 16-18 on the highway. Disconnect the sensor will make your computer re-adjust you fuel and air mixture even tough the car run fine. Replacing it, I usually have a better access from the bottom for removing, replacing and for the leverage than from the top having to remove the fans and sort and no room to move the wrench. You cant use standard socket set, recommend big box end wrench in metric, would not recommend using anything else due to striping the bolt of the o2 sensor than you end up a big trouble. when replacing new o2, make sure you put anti seize lubricate on the threads to keep it from sticking for the next time around. if your engine light stay on, it may not be your o2 sensor triggering that light.
O2 SENSORS ARE USUALY LOCATED ON THE EXSAUST MANIFOLD AND HAVE A PLUG TO DISCONNECT FROM THE HARNESS
