Got the P0141 code which is: the controller tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin operation. If too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141. There are 2 possibilities:
1. the heating element on the sensor is not working.
2. the heating circuit is open, many possible places that the wires are disconnected.
I measured the resistance of the heating element, which is about 6 ohm. Since after reset the engine light does not come on until a few days later, I decide just to replace the oxygen sensor.
P0141 is for the “secondary oxygen sensor” when you order from Honda. Or the “downstream oxygen sensor” when you order from third party store.
I will order one from Honda instead of using the Bosch’s Universal Oxygen Sensor.
About the Bosch’s Universal Oxygen Sensor:
I am going to show you 3 Different Ways To Change Power Steering Fluid.
first way: This method is from manufacture’ repair service manual.
2nd way: This is modified version of the first method with two people.
3rd way: This is my easy and lazy way. My easy way not only would eliminate many potential problems, but also it is good for any not mechanically adept person.
Is Bosch Oxygen Sensor Installation Video Correct?
Bosch is a big company. In its youtube installation video dated Aug 8, 2012 it showed animation of air flow along electrical wires with the instruction: “It is critical to understand that in order for the oxygen sensor to work properly air must be drawn into the sensor through the connecting wires. Therefore you must not solder the wires together. Doing so will result in a malfunctioning sensor.” Is Bosch correct? It is more than a year and the video has more than 10k views, but no one has pointed out the mistake, or is it me who is making a mistake?
Either this $56 sensor is the invention of the century or that animation of blue air is 200% wrong!
Please, please leave your comments below because I am trying to replacing the oxygen sensor on my car. Let’s see whether internet can bring the truth to light.
How to Change the Front Brake Pads on a Honda Accord
1 Park your Accord & engage its emergency brake (because emergency brake only applies to rear brake).
2 Remove wheel: loose nuts using lug wrench, lift the Accord’s front end off the ground using your jack and remove the nuts, and wheel.
3. Examine the Accord’s brakes, if you notice the rotor is deeply worn, scratched or gouged, you’ll need to have it resurfaced or install a new one. This video is about replacing the brake pads only.
4. Take a look at the back of the caliper. There are two bolts securing it against the rotor. Remove the bottom bolt, using a 12-mm socket wrench. Of course, turn the bolt counter-clockwise to remove it. You may now be able to simply lift the caliper upward, pivoting it on the top bolt. If not, try loosening the top bolt just a bit and try lifting it up again.
5. Examine how the old brake pads are positioned within the caliper bracket. Again, I find it easier just to take a photo of how everything looks so that you can correctly position the new pads. Once you’re clear on how it’s all put together, remove the old pads.
6. Use a C-clamp to compress the piston inside the caliper. Make sure you put an old pad between the surface of the piston and your clamp. The old pad will prevent damage to the piston. Sometimes pushing brake fluid back through the system may cause the master cylinder to overflow. You may simply use a rag to clean the drip.
7. Swing the caliper back down and bolt it into place. The “flexible” bolt housing may be in the way. Of course, if you removed only one bolt, tighten it snugly. If you removed both, remember to tighten both.
8. Bolt the wheel/tire back into place and lower the Accord to the ground. Once the Accord is on the ground, tighten the lugs.
9. Move to the other side and repeat the process to change the brake pads. You must always change both left and right brake pads. Never change just one side. When you’re finished with both left and right brakes, open the Accord’s hood and find the master cylinder. Clean any drips, look at the master cylinder. If you’ve lost any brake fluid, refill it.
Your battery may be a different type (so verify it before buying), but what does CR1616 mean?
How do you open it?
Even though it is an easy operation, since it is so small, make sure you watch this video so that you don’t break anything that is irreversible.
