Default o2 sensor

My check engine light has come on on my 97 civic, its the o2 sensor, i was wondering if it was something not too hard to switch. Thanks

Disconnect the primary HO2S connector, then remove the cover
than disconnect the secondary ho2s connector, then removing the secondary ho2s
than install the secondary h02s in the reverse order of removal. Your going to need a 02 wrench.

yea your secondary sensor is bad, you could just buy a new one. shouldnt be too much for you car. it's easier then doing all the work in switching them, however if you have no money do what home girl above said.

PS - girlwithanSIattitude, i got a 2007 SI, and i love girls who know there stuff, maybe you can pop my hood and help me get this turbo going? PM me, and check out my SIG in case your thinking some sexual innuendo.

PPS - a/s/l...yea im droppin it - throw back into those AOL days in the chat rooms... LOL

If i just buy a new one, how easy does it become to take the old one off and put the new one on? and how much do they go for?

sometimes the threads dont come off when its cold when i did my o2 sensor i had to drive my car till it was a million digreese to heat it up to loosen the threads, if it doesnt come off dont force it drive your car hard and heat it up and threads will come loose easy

Gee, I wonder why we don't get very many girl memebers around here? Maybe because everytime they come around they get their legs humped... lol

Anyway... to the OP. Get a code reader out and check to make sure which o2 sensor is broken, make sure you replace the right one or your just wasting money. The old one should just unscrew, then unplug it. Screw the new one and and hook it up. Done.
