Denso 02-04 RSX / 02-05 Civic Si Primary O2 Sensor
This Denso O2 sensor is the wideband air/fuel sensor that you need for your 02-04 Acura RSX (DC5), 02-05 Civic Si (EP3), and 02-04 Honda CRV. This is also the primary 02 sensor needed for Hondata KPro for the 05-06 Acura RSX.
Don't be fooled by the much lower prices from other websites that tell you their sensors come in a Denso box but may have been manufactured by someone other than Denso - that simply means you are not purchasing an authentic Denso sensor and are overpaying for a Denso box. K Series Parts only sells real Denso sensors in Denso packaging.
This sensor is a direct replacement for the Honda/Acura parts: 36531-PRB-A01.
This Denso oxygen sensor is direct plug and play so no cutting or wiring is required for installation.
DENSO's light duty oxygen sensor started to appear on vehicles with the development of fuel injection systems. The basic job of the sensor is to monitor the air fuel mixture under idle, moderate acceleration and cruise conditions. Under heavy acceleration the oxygen sensor goes into "open loop," which basically means that the engine management computer system ignores the oxygen sensor. Oxygen sensors have a smaller range of limits in detecting and adjusting the difference from an optimum air/fuel ratio.
As the automotive industry continues to improve on their standards DENSO is keeping the pace with advancements in our engineering to meet the demands from the industry. Also, as car owners are holding on to their vehicles for longer periods, DENSO continues to make auto parts available for those critical replacement parts for all applications.
Oxygen sensors, also known as Lambda sensors or O2 sensors among some vehicle manufacturers, are among the most sensitive and critical components on your car's engine. Earlier fuel injection systems employed one oxygen sensor in the exhaust system to maintain closed-loop air/fuel mixture control. However, today's engines may use as many as four sensors, which monitor not only exhaust gas oxygen content but catalytic converter efficiency as well. In order to perform these functions properly, the sensors must adhere to OE standards within incredibly close tolerances. A malfunctioning or incorrectly calibrated oxygen sensor can hurt driveability and illuminate the malfunction indicator, resulting in costly and time-consuming repairs. DENSO First Time Fit® oxygen sensors are designed to meet those tolerances and more. The DENSO oxygen sensor catalog offers one of the most complete product lines in the industry, from Acura to Volvo.
